The Ancient Road, also called “Hærvejen", offers many different attractions. Whether you are interested in history or a nature lover, you will find plenty to experience there. The Ancient Road meanders through some of Denmark’s most scenic landscapes and passes some of the nation’s most inspiring prehistoric monuments. Among those, the two mighty burial mounds and the two rune stones erected by kings Gorm the Old and Harald Bluetooth in the 900s, as well as Jelling's Church, mark the transition from paganism to Christianity in Denmark.
You can hike or bike along the Ancient Road throughout the year but
the best time for a holiday there is from 1 May to 1 October. Hiking outside this period is, of course, possible, but the weather is unstable and accommodation offerings are fewer.
