In the middle of the municipality of Ikast-Brande, you find the beautiful open heath, Harrild Heath. The heath is a protected area and offers unique natural areas covered in heather, with woods and clean watercourses. Harrild Heath is the ideal starting point for hiking trips with friends or family.
On the heath, you have the possibility of seeing rare animals and vegetation only present at heaths, such as teals, black woodpeckers and shrikes as well as huge herds of both roe and red deer. In addition, the characteristic heath flowers form a beautiful view.
