It’s a little complex, and then it’s not. Let us guide you.
As a rule, it is not allowed to sleep in a tent in the countryside. BUT - The Danish Nature Agency has designated a large number of forests throughout the country for wild camping. There are the following forests in the Coastal Land:
- Skablund Forest on the north side of Horsens Fjord.
- Bjerre Forest, Rold Forest, and Boller Nederskov at Bjerrelide south of Horsens Fjord.
- Sebberup Forests, Ussinggård Forests and Kær Forest north of Hedensted.
- Grund Forest on the north side of Vejle Fjord.
Furthermore, there are a large number of nature camp sites where you can pitch your tent - some are free, while others charge a fee.
It is only allowed to sleep in tents in privately owned forests if you have a special permit from the owner.
It is not allowed to pitch a tent on the beach.
Both in public forests and on the beach, sleeping on the forest floor is allowed, but not in a tent. A sleeping bag or hammock is ok. The basic rule is that you must have a clear view of the stars.
