On the route, there are eight additional loops with lengths between 2.7 km and 12 km, which are designed for hikers who wish to walk a shorter, circular route.
The Marsh Trail runs through four towns – Rudbøl, Højer, Tønder and Møgeltønder – where you can experience the region’s unique architecture.
For those who wish to walk the whole route, the towns also have good places to stay overnight.
A dissemination station has been established at Højer Windmill, where you can learn more about the special marsh landscape. A further two dissemination stations are in the pipeline. Boards with more information will also be erected at several places along the route.
The Marsh Trail is a so-called trample path, where you primarily walk on grass. It will be cut as and when needed during the summer months, although at times it may get long. Therefore, please use suitable footwear.
Tøndermarsken isn’t just unspoilt countryside, however; it’s a landscape that has been shaped by human hands for centuries of life with – and against – the water. You can see dykes, fields, pumping stations and canals – in other words, everything that makes Tøndermarsken unique.
