    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.
