Cycling Routes in Sønderjylland
Five cycling routes in Sønderjylland that you should not miss!
West Coast Route
With the North Sea as a constant companion, the West Coast Route runs unhindered and at times in an almost permanent cross wind through natural and cultural landscapes that have been shaped over many centuries. Fresh sea air, time for reflection and beautiful sunsets are guaranteed!
Hærvejen – National Cycling Route 3
Hærvejen has been an important travel artery for more than a thousand years. Armies, oxen drivers and pilgrims have travelled through Jutland on this route. As far as possible, the cycling route runs on small roads. Here, you can experience medieval churches, Viking runic stones, ancient burial mounds and impressive scenery. The majority of the roads are paved, but there are also many minor gravel tracks running through forests and fields.
Hærvejen runs from Frederikshavn in the north to the Danish-German border.
The Border Route
The "Border Route" is a themed cycle route highlighting the special culture in the border region between Germany and Denmark. It presents culture/historical topics close to nature paths.
Between Wiedau sluice near the North Sea and the old fjord city Flensburg, the "Grenzroute" follows idyllic paths on its 130 km route along the German/Danish border. Along the way, it traverses the border 13 times.
