Pamhule Skov covers around 300 hectares and is one of the largest forests in the area. The name means “the forest in the hollow amongst rolling hills”.
The forest was originally deciduous. Today half of it consists of beech, whilst the rest of the wood is mainly made up of oak, ash and various coniferous trees.
The forest is a great location for birds. Pamhule Skov has been designated a protected area for woodland birds in order to preserve the habitats of, for example, honey buzzards, kingfishers, grey wagtails, dippers, green woodpeckers, spotted woodpeckers and black woodpeckers. You can also find ravens, herons, goshawks, common buzzards, sparrow hawks and red kites. Foxes, badgers, squirrels and hares also live in the forest, as well as a large population of deer.
"Udsigten" (The viewing point) is amongst the highest points in the forest and from here you can see both Hindemade and Haderslev Dam.
In the south-western corner of the wood, are the remains of a small fortification known as "ringvold". It is a circular earthwork, which is around 65 metres in diameter. Neither the rampart nor moat are intact, but the south-east of the fortification is well preserved.
From Pamhule Skov you can visit Denmark’s second-largest deer park, Haderslev Dam, as well as Restaurant Damende, Christiansdal and Tørning Mølle, depending on how far you like to cycle or walk.
