Sønderjylland from Coast to Coast cycle routes bind the region together from the east coast all the way out to the marshes in the west, and provide a cycling experience which gives you a chance to see many of the attractions in Sønderjylland.

236 kilometres through beautiful Sønderjylland

You won’t find a better way of experiencing the varied landscape of Sønderjylland than by bike. The flat and open marshlands on the west coast stretch out as far as the eye can see, interrupted only by dikes and pumping stations that tell their own stories of the fantastic cultural landscape. 

Along the east coast, deep fjords cut through the landscape and provide the backdrop to a lively traffic of yachting enthusiasts. The landscape has gently rolling hills and is covered by beech forest, with the trees reaching right down to the edge of the beach at several places.

A dedicated guidebook, "Sønderjylland from Coast to Coast" guides you through fascinating landscapes, delightful places to spend the night and great places to eat, as well as taking in interesting culture-historical destinations.
