Photo: Mads Hansen

The Ancient Road in Middle Jutland runs between the ancient capital of The Ancient Road, Viborg, and the old town of the royals, Jelling.

This is where you will hike through typical Middle Jutland scenery of wide heathland, the hills of the mountain ridge, lush smaller lowland areas and large lakes. 

This route has a wide range of attractions on offer: from small to large. If there was enough space on this page, we would love to tell you about every single one of them! Instead we chose a smaller selection.

At the top you can find information regarding the cities, the nature and the history as well as detailed suggestions for different hiking sections. 

At the bottom of the page there is information to help you plan your trip. Please note that you can also find a lot of interesting information in “Hærvejen – Guide for hikers and cyclists”, the print version of our map.
