Explore the beautiful nature in the Silkeborg area. Follow Hærvejen (the ancient road) – either by car, bike or on foot.



Hærvejen is approx. 280 km. long. Before there was any such thing as cars and trains, Jutland’s highways went along the watershed through the country from the German border to Viborg. At that time, Hærvejen consisted of gravel and sunken roads. Hærvejen was not only one road, but a network of minor roads, which today is called Hærvejen.

Go out and give yourself a lot of good experiences along Hærvejen, whether it is through walking, cycling, running or other activities in the nature.

Be inspired by Hærvejen's own website where you can find maps of Hærvejen's cycling route and Hærvejen's hiking trails.
