In South Jutland you can experience The Ancient Road at first hand. On several sections of this route you cycle directly through the history of the ancient trail, through open landscape, green space and large plantations of trees. 

Here you can find a small selection of the many attractions to discover along the route.
The Ancient Road connects the towns Jelling and Padborg, close to the German border. The scenery is typical for South Jutland: Tree plantations and open landscapes as well as small and large green gems of nature. 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.
