Experience Nature!

In Sønderjylland we don’t have a patent on forests, beaches or the countryside. Of course, they’re all found elsewhere in Denmark. In spite of this, the countryside in Sønderjylland is quite unique. Perhaps it’s the sheer variation that does it; there are only a handful of other places in Denmark where the natural attractions are so varied – from the Wadden Sea and the flat marshland in the west to the fjord landscape with its tunnel valleys and rolling hills in the east.

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.
