More than 1000 kilometers marked trails on more than 150 different paths take you through the flat marsh area in the west and the fjord area with tunnel valleys and soft hills in the east.

The four longest trails – the Gendarm Path, the Oxen Way, the Marsh Trail and the Als Path.

The Gendarme Path

The Gendarme Path runs from the Danish-German border near Padborg through Kollund, Gråsten, across Broagerland and Vemmingbund, past Dybbøl and further on to Sønderborg, Høruphav and Skovby on Als. Most of the way you walk along the coast through a changing landscape.

The Marsh Trail

2019 saw the opening of The Marsh Trail, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to walk through a cultural landscape full of magnificent natural attractions.

Hærvejen - the Ancient Road

Hærvejen is Denmark’s oldest highway, which since ancient times has carried soldiers and people from Danevirke in the south to Viborg in the north and vice versa. The route was also used by cattle-drivers, and it is therefore also known as “the Ancient Road”

Camino Haderslev Næs

The “Camino Haderslev Headland” route has borrowed its name from the world-renowned Camino de Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route, and runs through Haderslev. In this case, however, it’s approx. 100-kms with the area’s nine churches making up points of reference.

The 65-km Alsstien follows the coast of Als through some of the island’s most beautiful countryside. The route starts at the dam to Kegnæs and leads you through rolling cornfields and bright yellow rape fields on one side of the path, with the blue waves of Little Belt on the other side.

The campaign is funded in part by Danmarks Erhvervsfremmebestyrelse
