World Heritage in the Wadden Sea
In 2014 the Danish section of the Wadden Sea was admitted onto UNESCO’s world heritage list, which has generated even greater interest in this fantastic area of natural beauty.
Autumn in Sønderjylland is synonymous with superb natural attractions at the water’s edge, in the forest and not least in the air, where you can experience the phenomenon known as Sort Sol (Black Sun), as starlings trace spectacular patterns in the sky.
There are plenty of attractions for both children and adults: you can pick your own oysters, visit museums, ride on velocipedes and Segways, visit the new viewing tower at Marsk Tårn and much more besides.
There’s an almost endless number of natural attractions to enjoy in Sønderjylland in the autumn, when you can experience the spectacular murmuration of starlings known as Sort Sol (Black Sun) and taste delicious oysters harvested directly from the Wadden Sea.
Are you taking your children or grandchildren with you to Sønderjylland? If you are, then we have exciting and fun activities for adults and children alike. In this case, a combi-ticket to the region’s Top Attractions may be just right for you, with a single ticket providing admission to attractions such as Universe Science Park, History Centre Dybbøl Banke and the iconic windmill at Dybbøl Mølle.
If you’re travelling with slightly older children, then high-altitude thrills at High Park Sønderjylland climbing park on the east coast or a blokart speeding along the beach on the west coast also make ideal activities.
Cycling and hiking trips are particular attractions in the autumn, when you can experience the wonderful sight of nature changing colour in preparation for winter.
If you take your fishing rod with you on holiday, you may be lucky enough to land a sea trout along the east coast of Sønderjylland. In any case, you’ll find lots of fishing spots where there’s a chance of catching your own fish.
Whether you’re in Sønderjylland on a flying visit or on a longer holiday, you’ll need somewhere to sleep. Fortunately, there are lots of places to stay throughout Sønderjylland, regardless of whether you prefer a holiday home in the middle of the countryside, a holiday resort offering a wealth of activities or a hostel that can cater for the whole family.
