Activities at Dybbøl Banke

You can follow in the footsteps of history at the redoubts on Dybbøl Banke, you can experience everyday life during the war at the History Centre, and you can visit Dybbøl Mill, a famous national symbol for Denmark. In addition to this, Dybbøl Banke also has great natural assets for you to enjoy from the network of paths running through the area. If you are ready for a longer walk, Gendarmstien (the gendarm path) along the coast offers one of the most attractive walks in Denmark.


Follow in the footsteps of the gendarm border patrols along the coast.

The 74km-long Gendarmsti from the border at Padborg to Høruphav on Als offers varying landscapes and many historic sites. If you are willing to get off and push now and then, most of the path is also suitable for cycling. You can also take just shorter trips along parts of the path.

See the view over Vemmingbund

A network of hiking paths links the redoubt area with Gendarmsti and the forest along the coast at Vemmingbund. From here you can see Broagerland, from where the Danish positions were bombarded in 1864. The beautiful trip along Grønnekærvej leads past Langdamgård; the site of heavy fighting in 1864.

The roads and many of the paths are also accessible by bicycle.

Run around Dybbøl Banke

There is a 4.9km running route starting from the car park at the end of Sundgade. The route is signposted with km posts.

Walk around the redoubts

Dybbøl Banke is best seen from foot. All the redoubts can be reached along roads or grass-covered paths, most of which are suitable for wheelchairs or prams.


Pitch your tent at Viemosen

There is a primitive campsite with tables, benches and camp-fire site by Gendarmsti west of Redoubt I. The campsite is close to the beautiful countryside at Viemosen, home to many water fowl.
