Surrounded by Denmark’s largest marsh area is Tørring, which is probably best known for being the natural starting point for the canoeing trip on the Gudenå river. But the town and the area contain an exciting and unique nature that is suitable for much more than just canoeing.
The source of the Gudenå river is in Tinnet Krat. 10 kilometres away in an easterly direction, the Gudenå river becomes so wide and watery that it is possible to canoe. In the middle of Tørring you will find the place where the canoeing starts. Here you will find the town’s large canoe hire, and directly opposite you will find Tørring Camping, which has the Gudenå river running through the site. Together, they form a centre of tourism around the Gudenå, and nearby there is ample opportunity to stock up with a trip to the town’s shops and have a good meal at one of the local places to eat.
The word Tørring means “The dry area”. The name of the town refers to the large contiguous wetland to the east, Uldum Marsh, where the Gudenå flows through. The wetland made it difficult in the old days to get around the area and limited the opportunities to harvest crops for the local farmers. Today, the area is accessible and guests have excellent opportunities to explore the unique nature of Denmark’s largest marsh area. The beautiful Gudenå Path hiking trail leads all the way from the source to Uldum Marsh, and you can follow the signs from the town in the direction of the marsh area.
In the neighbouring town of Uldum, just across the marsh area, is beautiful old Uldum Mill. Today, the mill is a museum, and it still produces flour and other high-quality products that can be purchased in the mill shop. In the museum you can learn more about the history of the marsh area, see well-maintained archaeological finds from the bog, and then you can watch the production when the mill grinds as in the old days.
See, feel and sense the living cultural history in a beautiful old mill from 1895. See for yourself how the flour was produced and learn more about the noble craftmanship that has characterised the area for centuries.
Follow the Gudenå path to the west through the protected countryside to Tinnet Krat (10 km), where both the Gudenå river and the Skjernå stream have their sources.
In the thicket Tinnet Krat, a spring trickles out of the ground and marks the start of the two streams Gudenåen and Skjernåen. The large watershed is a fantastic and unique nature experience beautifully set on the Jutland ridge. The area is a good starting point for hiking as there are sev...
