Skallerund Lake

Take a walk in the past

In 1903, Klosterlund Tørveværk began its peat excavation and production. Until 1914, peat manufacturer Emil Ernst extracted millions of peat in the bog.

Martin Anchersen, who owned the land, established a dam across the valley in 1933, creating Skallerund Lake. That same year, Martin Anchersen set up a small museum in a newly built half-timbered house. Today, the museum belongs to Klosterlund Museum.

In 2019, Ikast-Brande Municipality renovated the path around the lake. Enjoy a walk in nature and take a rest on the bench by the small museum.

Skallerund Lake has developed from a peat bog to an idyllic forest lake.

There is a dog forest just on the other side of the road by Skallerund Lake.
