Some highlights on this road trip


Denmark largely consists of the Jutland peninsula. This road trip starts in southern Jutland, characterised by its untouched forests and lakes, most of which are protected nature reserves. We immediately set course for Rømø, a Wadden Island with the widest sandy beach in Europe. It is internationally known as a resting place for migratory birds and is part of the Vadehavet National Park. You won't find typical Danish villages with coloured houses on Rømø yet, but you can get a breath of fresh air on the enormously wide beaches. They are accessible by car or motorhome, but be careful not to get stuck in the sand! But there is help on the beach and in no time we were driving again.

Rømø - Hvide Sande

The route continues to Ribe, Denmark's oldest town. The medieval town centre with its narrow alleyways and old houses gives you a historical feel. You can climb the 248 steps of the cathedral for an enchanting view over the city. Next, we drive to Esbjerg where you can enjoy a pleasant stroll along the harbour and take a picture at the tall sculpture 'Men at Sea' that represents the connection between man and nature.

From Esbjerg, it takes less than an hour to get to Legoland. And honestly, with or without children, Legoland is a must-see. Be amazed by the sights from around the world, built with more than 20 million Lego bricks. Driving further north, we arrive in Hvide Sande, a harbour town literally surrounded by water. This extraordinary piece of nature is very popular during the summer months for surfing and cycling.

Hvide Sande - Frederikshavn

The Limfjord runs through several bends from one end of North Jutland to the other. It is Denmark's largest fjord and, with its endless areas of heathland, calm water and fresh air, is suitable for de-stressing completely. It is also an ideal place for swimming, surfing or sailing.

Driving along the fjord, we climb to the top of Bulbjerg, a limestone rock protruding from the coastline. Even though the rock only has a height of 47 metres, the view is stunning. Moreover, it is also the only rock formation in Jutland and the only cliff on the Danish mainland where birds nest in the rock face. In Jutland's northernmost point, Skagen, you can hike on the headland where the Skagerrak and Kattegat meet. Because the seas have a different density, they do not mix. This makes for a special natural phenomenon and a fantastic view.

Frederikshavn - Aarhus

After so many beautiful pieces of nature, Aalborg makes a nice change. It is the fourth largest city in Denmark, after Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense. After a short visit to the city, we head for Lille Vildmose, the largest raised bog in Western Europe. It is a place full of unique flora, where it is really beautiful to walk.

Next, we drive through Denmark's largest forest on our road trip and arrive at Mols Bjerge. This national park has one of the most varied landscapes in the country. Walk across the moors, in the marshes, through the forests and between the fields and spot the many different animals that live here.

We conclude our Jutland round trip with a visit to Aarhus. The main attraction in this city is surely the open-air museum Den Gamle By. With buildings dating back to the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, you can experience how the craftsmen used to live.
