On holiday in the Land of Legends

What’s a family of the past?

Bike route Copenhagen - Berlin

It’s necessary to be well trained to do a 600 km bike route. Having divided the route into 15 stages which equals an average of 40-45 km a day gives you a 2 week holiday and the route does seem so long.

Experiences along the route

You can, of course start anywhere you like, but if you start in Copenhagen, the route will look as follows:

Søkildegaard - a farmshop with atmosphere and intimacy

The Kure and Nielsson family and their three daughters have established a genuine and authentic farm shop at Søkildegaard.

Knuthenlund - happy goats and the best cheese in the world

1st of July 2007 Knuthenlund started the largest conversion to organic farming in Danish history. The number of staff increased from 4 to 22. Now 1800 out of 2400 acres are grown organically and the herd numbers 320 dairy sheep and 125 dairy goats. The former cow shed now houses a farm dairy and visitors can get an imminent look at milking and cheese production.

Roskilde Festival - a tasty festival

130 food stalls. That’s what it takes to feed 100.000 people through 8 days. And even though burgers are top of the festival goer’s food list there’s a wider and more healthy selection to choose from. Passing through one of the many food area temptation is inevitable. The food stalls are busy and you’re met by wonderful smells of thai, indian and Mexican food, vegetarian dishes, open sandwiches and wraps.
