Hærvejen (Army trail)

Traders, Pilgrims and Armies

The Hærvej was used by traders, who was transporting flint, amber, hides, pottery and oxen to central Europe, and by pilgrims on their way to visit the grave of the Apostles in Santiago in northern Spain, the Church of St. Peters in Rome or even Jerusalem. The road was also used by armies, which the many ramparts along the roadside testifies to.

Hiking and Biking at Hærvejen
Hærvejen goes through the municipality of Ikast-Brande at Engesvang, Stenholt Forest as well as Nørre Snede, and it is an obvious excursion spot, if you are in the area.
