We have many lovely things to look at in the Coastal Land. But these views are some of the finest. Come and have a look!
A lighthouse so beautiful that it should have its own Instagram account! Træskohage Lighthouse from 1904 is an iconic landmark for the area around Stouby and Vejlefjord. The 13-metre tall tower has recently been restored and today serves superbly as a viewing tower with its stunning view of the fjord.
Uldum Marsh is a protected nature area with a rare animal and plant life. A well-functioning network of trails allows you to experience the large bog area and marshland up close. Start at the Bird Tower and soak up the view.
The deep forests of Sondrup Orchard are set in a hilly landscape in a beautiful and varied area just north of Alrø. Both Sondrup Hills and Uldrup Hills are among the favourite excursion destinations among the locals. With its 74 metres above the fjord, Blakshøj is the highest point, but the best view you will find at the viewing mounds in Trustrup.
In the hilly Staksrode Forest you will find Denmark’s most dramatic coastline with high slopes, fallen trees, untouched and rare nature. There are four signposted routes, each with its own colour. We recommend the beautiful yellow route with a stroll past a real castle ruin and a sea view that takes your breath away.
The Monastery Mill is located at the outlet of the Gudenå river to Mos Lake, Jutland’s largest lake, and is perfect to combine with a trip to The Sugar Loaf. The mill was built by Benedictine monks in the 12th century, and has since been used as a paper factory, among other things. Find the stunning views from the bird tower at the northern end of Tørreladen.
Do you want to brag about climbing Denmark’s highest mountain? Then you need to cross Yding Skovhøj off your checklist because at 172.54 metres, it beats all other Danish peaks. Mind you, if you count the small Bronze Age mound on top. At the top there is the finest view of the Gudenå valley in the west, and the wind blows your hair like on a real mountain.
Here are our recommendations for great day trips, where you can make your way past some of our vantage points.
