Discover The Ancient Road in Middle Jutland by bike

Photo: Hærvejen (MH)

The Ancient Road in Middle Jutland connects the old capital of The Ancient Road, Viborg, and the ancient town of the royals, Jelling. You get to cycle through the typical Middle Jutland landscape which includes wide heathland, the hills of the mountain ridge, lush lowlands and large lakes.

The route leads from Viborg to Jelling and includes a lot of small and large attractions. On this route you pass through places where once some of the most important moments of Denmark’s history happened. 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.
