Damages on the Gendarme Path
After the storm surge that hit, among other areas, Sønderjylland on the 20th and 21st of October 2023, the Gendarme Path is impassable in several places.
The emergency services in Sønderborg Municipality continue to advise against hiking on parts of the Gendarme Path. The path is undermined in several places and it can be difficult to see exactly where there is a risk of falling trees and additional landslides. There are also several stretches where the path has disappeared entirely or partially.
Should you still decide to go hiking on the Gendarme Path, we recommend that you orientate yourself using the map below.
The signage is currently incomplete, as posts along the coast have been lost. Since are areas where the path needs to be relocated, the signs will only be replaced once the path is fully reopened. It is not expected that there will be any major changes to the route.
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 opend, we will update the map - see markings in green.
