A richly diverse natural landscape, only a short trip from Aarhus, is waiting in East Jutland. Parkland, lakeland, fjords and forests - this region really does have it all!

Mols Bjerge National Park

Mols Bjerge National Park

Head out into Denmark’s second national park, the Mols Hills (Mols Bjerge) on the Djursland peninsula. Explore its hilly heathland, dotted with mulberry bushes, bogs, beach meadows and interesting sights, such as the ruins of Kalø Castle.


The Lake District

The area around Silkeborg and Skanderborg is known as The Lake District and here you’ll find Denmark's longest river, Gudenåen, and Denmark’s highest point, Yding Skovhøj. The area is also covered in a large number of beautiful lakes and you can take in formidable views across the whole region from The Sky Hills (Himmelbjerget) near Ry.
