Hiking on the Gendarm Trail

Hiking in Sønderjylland

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.

Hiking on the Gendarm Trail

The Gendarm Path

The Gendarm 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.

Hiking on Hærvejen (the Oxen Road)

Hærvejen - the Oxen Way

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 “Oxen Way”.
