As Denmark’s historic borderland, South Jutland is rich in opposing histories and unique culture. It's changed hands more than once over the centuries and you can sense that turbulence when you visit the region’s many diverse, historical sites. The landscape is at odds with its difficult history and you’ll find South Jutland to be a gentle, open land, bordered by Little Belt beaches to the east and the Wadden Sea National Park to the west. Today, Flensburg Fjord acts as a natural border with Germany, but there is no longer a physical border to cross.
A great region for a taste tour, whether you have a sweet tooth or a desire for something more meaty.
You’re spoilt for choice in South Jutland when it comes to calm, family-friendly beaches. There are many dotted along the Little Belt coast, the island of Als and the Kegnæs peninsula.
You can’t beat South-West Jutland for birdwatching. So pack up your binoculars and head west!
An ecological treasure trove, this vast marshland expanse is teeming with wildlife.
Walk, hike or ride through seemingly endless, open landscape in this atmospheric part of Denmark.
The wide open expanses of South Jutland offer you a wealth of outdoor possibilities, on land, water and wheels.
