Southern Jutland

Discover the Wadden Sea, idyllic towns and Danish history on a self-drive holiday to Southern Jutland

From the Wadden Sea's amazing birdlife and wondrous natural phenomena to idyllic towns, castles and museums, Southern Jutland offers a wealth of exciting historical experiences as well as magnificent scenery. It is therefore not surprising that many people choose to take a self-drive holiday to this interesting part of Denmark every year.

On your trip around Southern Jutland you can visit many interesting attractions and cultural sights such as Ribe Cathedral, the Viking Centre, Schackenborg Castle and Dybbøl Mill. The area is nothing less than a living history book, especially due to its location in the border area between Denmark and Germany.

But Southern Jutland is much more than exciting Danish history. The beautiful landscape also offers dramatic coastlines, wide sandy beaches, large dense forests and beautiful meadows. In addition, there is a wide range of activities, events, markets and festivals all year round. There are plenty of opportunities for children to get close to both Danish history and the beautiful countryside. It's the ideal place for a family holiday and an obvious destination for the perfect self-drive holiday.

The Wadden Sea in Jutland is an attraction in itself. Nature is ever-changing and therefore a unique experience. With sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, both the coast and the three Wadden Sea islands of Rømø, Fanø and Mandø are well worth a visit. Here you can see the dynamics of the Wadden Sea and the enormous diversity of animals and life that makes it a pure paradise for nature lovers. For the ultimate experience, visit the Wadden Sea Centre, where you can immerse yourself in the nature of the Wadden Sea and the many different migratory birds for which the area is famous.

In autumn in Tøndermarsken, you may also be lucky enough to experience the natural phenomenon of the Black Sun, when starlings flock in their thousands and form beautiful patterns in the evening sky.

On a self-drive holiday to Southern Jutland, you'll want to visit Ribe, Denmark's oldest town. Here you can enjoy a stroll through the cosy streets and admire the impressive Cathedral. Don't forget to visit the Viking Centre, which tells the stories of the Vikings and their marketplace, and see the beautiful Viking houses. Especially the beautiful Tinghus with its frescoes is worth a visit.

It is also possible to go on excursions to the cosy town of Tønder, which is Denmark's oldest market town, and the small town of Møgeltønder, which is known for Schackenborg Castle and the beautiful Castle Street with its well-preserved brick houses. Or how about a trip to the charming town of Gråsten, close to Flensburg Fjord? Here you will find the beautiful Gråsten Castle and Gråsten Castle Gardens.

If you fancy a refreshment in the midst of all the adventure, there are plenty of good restaurants and cafés to choose from. Try the great South Jutland coffee table offered by several of the region's small, cosy inns.

On a self-drive holiday, it's easy to get around and experience a lot. Don't miss the beautiful island of Als with its fascinating history around Dybbøl Mill from 1864, the cosy trading town of Sønderborg or the Universe science park, which offers a wide range of experiences and fun games for the whole family.
