Damages on the Gendarme Path

The Gendarme Path was reopened for Easter, but there are still a few places that cause problems.

During the storm surge that hit, among other areas, Sønderjylland on 20th and 21st October 2023, the Gendarme Path suffered extensive damage and was impassable in several places.

The path has been repaired and, in some places, new footpaths have been established further inland, but in general, a rougher route awaits.

The signage is still incomplete, as posts along the coast have been lost. There are several places where the slopes are undermined and there may be falling trees and further landslides, so travelling in forests and on coastal slopes should be done with some caution.

Should you still decide to go hiking on the Gendarme Path, we recommend that you orientate yourself using the map below.

The map contains the damages to the Gendarme Path that we have been informed of by Sønderborg and Aabenraa municipalities. As the damages are repaired and stretches are opened, we will update the map - pay special attention to markings with black warnings.

The Gendarme Path is largely reopened, with 3 stretches where a small detour is currently required.

Egernsund Bridge will undergo some renovation and, in this connection, the stairs down to Havnevej are blocked and a detour has been signposted on the route.

Dybbøl Strand at Viemosen, here landslides are still occurring and the area and the shelter and tentsite are closed. The detour with a route extension of an extra 1.5 km up over Dybbøl Banke is signposted on the route.

The stretch along the coast between Stenholt at forest Sønderskoven and the Lambjerglund holiday home settlement is still badly damaged and therefore closed. The detour with a 1.5 km route extension is signposted along the route.
