Take a walk in the past
The ground in Marselisborg Forests is hilly with deep slopes. In some places the clay soil of the slopes has fallen down so that the trees lean towards the water.
Well-preserved trees and nature life
Around 1820 the forests were badly overcut. Therefore the present trees have practically all been planted after this period. However, some conifers have been planted in this century.
Spread around the forests, especially in Moesgård Skov you will find a few 200-300 year old beech trees which have been preserved for aesthetic reasons. Today they are the breeding place for some species of birds brooding in caves.
