Marguerite Route facts
Perhaps most famous for having the world’s first – and still Europe’s biggest – LEGOLAND, Southern Jutland also has a whole lot more to offer family travellers.
The ruined castle
Koldinghus Castle Ruin is a treat in itself, but it also houses some interesting museums, including one dedicated to Danish silver. Just outside Kolding, you’ll find the Trapholt museum, where you can enjoy contemporary art, handicrafts and design.
A blustery beauty
The sea is rougher here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches excellent water sports areas. If you’re looking for more child-friendly and family areas for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.
Sejerø is a beautiful and peaceful island, with undulating landscape and many small swimming beaches. Visit the old church, with its fine fresco paintings, or any of the many burial mounds on the island. You can reach the island by ferry from Havnsø.
