Lakes and bogs along the Ancient Road Hærvejen

Lakes and bogs along the Ancient Road Hærvejen

There are many lakes along the Ancient Road, including Hald Sø, which is surrounded by magnificent rolling downs, and Tingdalsøerne, which are among the nation’s purest lakes. The Ancient Road passes several other lakes surrounded by idyllic nature.

The Ancient Road generally bypasses bogs and marshland since the aim of travellers in olden days was to avoid crossing water. However, in Southern Jutland the Ancient Road passes close by Abkær Mose and Stengelmose.
