Discover The Ancient Road by bike

The Ancient Road consists of a few hundred kilometres of cycling trails that stretch through Jutland like a backbone. In other words: There is the opportunity to experience the entire range of the Danish landscapes and nature from north to south. With that many kilometres of trails to choose from, it may be hard to decide.

We have put the routes on this page into geographical order to make choosing the destination for your next cycling trip easier for you. In the trail descriptions you will find information about the landscape, the history and the attractions. In our interactive map you will find information about restaurants and accommodation.

På hærvejene har man i århundreder færdedes, når man skulle forlade hjemstavnen med ærinder i fremmede egne. Hærvejenes historier spreder sig ud sammen med de mange hjul og fødder, klove og hove, der var med til at forme deres spor. For Hærvejene var ikke kun en vej men mange veje.
