East Jutland highlights

Go hiking, biking or horseback riding in National Park Mols Bjerge

The landscape in Mols Bjerge Nationalpark was created by gigantic ice tongues and tons of water, which has resulted in tall peaks with great views, deep dead ice holes and spectacular wildlife. When having explored the many opportunities in the nationalpark, you can walk the cosy streets of Ebeltoft with their cobblestones and half-timbered houses covered in hollyhocks.

Take a city break in Aarhus, Denmark’s second city

In Aarhus, you can visit the world class museums ARoS, Moesgaard Museum and the Old Town or you can enjoy the best from the New Nordic cuisine in the Michelin-starred restaurants SUBSTANS, Frederikshøj and Gastromé. You can go shopping in the most stylish shops in Scandinavia or take a walk along the beautiful coastline, in The Latin Quarter or pet a deer in Marselisborg Deer Park.

Enjoy nature in the Lake Distric

Go on a cruise with the world’s oldest coal burning paddle steamer Hjejlen from Silkeborg to Himmelbjerget, where you will find the most amazing panorama view of the area. There are plenty of opportunities to go active and cycle or hike the many, varied trails. Pamper yourself with spa treatments at Badeanstalten or visit AQUA Aquarium. Go to one of the Silkeborg’s many cosy eateries as the perfect end to the day.

Go green on Samsø island

Samsø is home of some of Denmark’s best produce particularly known for its famous potatoes but also strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkins, cabbage and so on, which can be picked up from the roadside stalls. The island is covered in cosy villages and along the coast, you will find beautiful beaches. At Besser Reef, you will see impressive seal and sea bird colonies.
