The Skagen Odde Nature Centre , on the northern tip of Denmark's Jutland, is a museum devoted to the effects of sand, water, wind and light. It was designed in 1989 by Jørn Utzon, the celebrated architect behind the Sydney Opera House. Under the leadership of his son Jan, the centre was completed in 2000.
The centre is located on Bøjlevejen, some three kilometres north-east of the centre of Skagen, itself 40 km north of Frederikshavn. Apart from the nearby radar station, it is the northernmost building in the area, not far from the point where the Kattegat and the Skagerrak meet. The surrounding area known as Grenen, rich in bird life, offers interesting walks along its sandy beaches.
