Hikes in Denmark
Denmark is criss-crossed by a wide network of well-maintained hiking trails. They lead along the diverse coasts of the country on the North Sea and Baltic Sea, over large and small islands, past many sights and excursion destinations and through the hilly landscapes in the interior. You will stay in a small red cottage behind the dunes or on one of the many camping sites.
In this guide, we have put together some of the most beautiful hiking trails in Denmark.
The 10 Most Beautiful hikes in Denmark
Where is the best place to go hiking in Denmark?
- The North Sea coast in the west of Jutland: From high dikes (for example the famous Blåbjerg with 64 m) you can hike along kilometres of sandy beaches, dune landscapes and the Wadden Sea.
- The island of Bornholm: Around the Danish Baltic Sea island, the old fishing trail „Kyststien“ leads hikers from the harbour town of Rønne past untouched nature, steep rocky cliffs and wide beaches – a coastal hiking trail for connoisseurs!
- The „Danish Riviera”: The coastal landscape near Copenhagen is typically Danish. It offers the perfect mix of cosy little towns, proud royal gorges and beautiful beaches. The walks here are mostly easy and well suited for children and older people.
- The Aarhus coast: The 180 km² large Mols Bjerge National Park is particularly suitable for a hiking holiday. The hilly heath landscape is well developed with certified routes and hiking trails.
- Northern Jutland: The wild north of Denmark with its fjords, forests and heaths is something for true nature lovers. Especially nice hiking can be done in North Jutland in the Thy National Park or in the Rebild Bakker nature reserve.
