Where two seas meet

At The Branch (Grenen), a sand spit and Denmark's northernmost point, the North Sea and Kattegat meet. You can literally stand with a leg in both seas. The seas have different densities so do not mix, producing an amazing effect – a distinct line where the waters meet, stretching from Denmark’s tip out into the sea.
