The interactive map of the The Ancient Road
The Ancient Road in South Jutland connects the towns Jelling and Padborg, close to the German border. On several sections of this part of the trail you get to hike directly through the history of the ancient trail.
The scenery is typical for South Jutland: Tree plantations, open landscapes 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.
In the interactive map of The Ancient Road there is information about accommodation and restaurants along the way. In our printed map and in our app, you can find all the information you need to find the correct path
or to prepare your route beforehand.
