You will find several churches along The Ancient Road. They will welcome you in for a visit, just as they have done for the hikers in the past thousand years.

Hærvejen deler sig i Aars i Himmerland eller samler sig alt efter hvilken retning du kommer fra. Her mødes Hærvejens vandrerrute fra Løgstør til Aars og fra Aalborg til Aars før de samlet i en rute løber videre mod den gamle hovedby på Hærvejen, Viborg.
