All around you have a view of the countryside, and even if forest is not in short supply in Denmark, you will probably still be impressed by the amount of forest in the hilly area north of Horsens. Rest your legs while you drink a cup of coffee or open a good bottle if you want to draw a line under the romance.
Picnic at the Monastery Mill
From the Sugar Loaf, the trip now continues through forest down to the Monastery Mill, located right where the Gudenå river flows into Jutland’s second largest lake Mos Lake. In addition to stunning lake views from the bird tower, the Monastery Mill is an historic excursion destination that is perfect for a picnic. Here you can enjoy the lunch you bring. There is a picnic house, as well as several picnic tables in the open air, where you can dine to the sound of the rippling Gudenå river. You can also moor here if you come by canoe.
Once you have eaten and looked around, you can either choose to go the same way back to the car or to walk along Klostermøllevej and turn right at Grønskovvej and take the path through Pinddal Marsh to Gudenåstien. On this Google Maps, you can see, among other things, the path system in Pinddal Marsh.
If you think the hike will be too long, you can also turn around after the Sugar Loaf and drive past the Monastery Mill on the way home.
