    Nørreskoven Forest and Dyrehaven deer park, Vejle

    1.08 km

    Nørreskoven Forest on the north side of Vejle Inlet is one of the most frequented forest in the area – one that invites you to enjoy many outdoor experiences. The very versatile piece of nature offers grave mounds, dried out springs and monuments. Nørreskoven is particularly well-known for the large beech trees from the early sixteenth century. Also enjoy a stroll in Dyrehaven (deer park). See the forest from above in the treetop climbing park, Gorilla Park Vejle, or challenge yourself to the forest trails by the sports college, Vejle Idrætshøjskole.

    The forest has an extensive hiking trail system.

    The Dyrehaven area
    Dyrehaven (deer park) stretches over a 30-hectare area in the south-eastern part of Nørreskoven. The motorway cuts through the heart of the woodland, but there is a passage between the two sections under the arches of the Vejle Bridge, where you can also admire this huge construction. It is possible to get very close to the 2 deer species fallow deer and bead. Please note: it is not allowed to feed the deer.

    Obstacle course, mountain bike trails and disc golf
    By Vejle Idrætshøjskole (sports college) in the north-eastern part of Nørreskoven there are mountain bike trails, obstacle courses (Skovbanen) and a disc golf course. There is access to the area from Nørremarksvej via Ørnebjergvej east of the college.

    The hilly woods of Nørreskov are ideal for mountain biking. The five-kilometre mountain bike trail is easy to use for all. The track is shaped like a figure eight and offers two difficulty levels. The hard track surface means that the trail can be used year-round regardless of weather conditions. The 600-meter obstacle course, built using forest materials, is somewhat more demanding. The area also has a disc golf course that can be booked through the college’s training centre.

    Tales from Nørreskoven
    Nørreskoven comprises the areas known as Forkobbel, Bagkobbel and Polakkerskoven.
     
    The former ski jumping hill is one of the curiosities of the Bagkobbel area. It was built during World War 2 in connection with the very cold winters. 

    Polakkerskoven got its name from some Polish mercenaries, who roamed the forest during the Swedish War in the years 1658-60. The citizens of the city captured the Polaks and built their skulls into the north gable of Saint Nicolai’s Church, where they are still seen.   

    Far into the seventeenth century, the holy spring of Helligkilden was visited by sick people on May 1 and on Midsummer Day.  In 1905, the spring was restored, but has since dried out.

    1.25 km

    The obstacle courses in Gorilla Park are of varying heights and difficulty and offer experiences for everyone regardless of physique or adventurous spirit. Here you can go treetop swinging like Tarzan and Jane for hours on end.

    Gorilla Park Vejle’s easiest course is only 1½ metres above ground, featuring small, easy obstacles. The level of difficulty then increases, which is reflected in the course number. The most challenging course is the Alpha course!

    Bølgen

    1.84 km

    The largest of the apartments are the top-floor apartments measuring 240 square metres.

    Bølgen enjoys a magnificent location with waterfront promenade by the bay of Skyttehusbugten in Vejle Inlet. The marina is its nearest neighbour.

    Bølgen was designed by the renowned Danish design studio Henning Larsen Architects, creators of the Opera House in Copenhagen, Moesgaard Museum close to Aarhus and the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik. Bølgen has been awarded several prestigious architectural prizes, including the Civic Trust Award and LEAF Award, and was hailed as Residential Building of the Year in 2009.

    The first two ‘Waves’ were completed in 2009, after which construction halted during the financial crisis. Construction on the last three ‘Waves’ started in 2015. By the end of 2018, all five ‘Waves’ had been completed.

    Vejle’s waterfront

    1.95 km

    The waterfront has become an exciting recreational area with a promenade, restaurant, marina, kayak club island, public urban spaces and panoramic terraces.

    On the landside you find residential areas with rental as well as owner-occupied apartments in addition to the rowing clubhouse of Vejle Roklub and the futuristic housing estate Bølgen (The Wave). There is access to Klubøen (Club Island) with a marina and Den Flydende Kajakklub (Floating Kayak Club) – both constructed on pontoons in the harbour. On the islet of Havneøen, exclusive apartments are currently being built. A bridge leads to the iconic corporate headquarters, Fjordenhus, designed by artist Olafur Eliasson.

    Club Island and marina
    Klubøen (The Club Island) is home to Vejle’s maritime clubs. The large building houses facilities for the sailing club, motorboat club, dinghy club and visiting vessels as well as offices and public toilets. Located on the upper floor is the popular Restaurant Remouladen that features a terrace with panoramic views of the inlet and waterfront. On the upper level there is a roof terrace with exercise equipment. At the pier, which connects Klubøen with the marina, there is a nice cream parlour during summer months in addition to a large pontoon with tables and benches and two small pontoons designed for water games. Klubøen is designed by Transform.

    The floating kayak club
    Vejle Kayak Club probably has Denmark’s most unique clubhouse. The manmade island is located about 20 metres from shore and can be reached via a footbridge. The island, which is almost V-shaped, is designed by Force4 Architects. Besides club and storage facilities and a launch area for kayaking club members, the floating kayak club also has space for nature guides to teach. Along the island’s embankments there are wooden stairs and roof terraces that offer tables and benches and guaranteed panoramic views. There is public access between 8:00 and 22:00, under due consideration for the kayakers.

    Bølgen
    The exclusive wave-shaped apartment complex called Bølgen (The Wave) has received a host of awards and has become one of Vejle’s architectural landmarks. The building consists of five consecutive waves, each reaching a height of nine storeys. Bølgen was designed by Henning Larsen Architects.

    The first two ‘Waves’ were completed in 2009, after which construction stopped during the financial crisis. The last three ‘Waves’ were commenced in 2015 and by the end of 2018, all five ‘Waves’ had been completed.

    Havneøen and Fjordenhus
    Currently being constructed in an area covering 24,400 m2 in the dockland are nine luxury residential towers surrounded by canals and an open harbour square. There is access to Fjordenhus, the corporate headquarters of investment company Kirk Kapital, via a bridge from the islet of Havneøen (Harbour Island). Designed by world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, the iconic building is open to the public on the ground floor. Here, you can see site-specific artworks by the artist. The house was opened on 9 June 2018.

    The commercial harbour
    Like in many other port cities, Vejle’s thriving commercial harbour is secured with fencing and there is therefore no public access to the harbourfront along Nordkajen and Sydkajen.

    Grejsdal Valley

    2.5 km

    Grejsdal Valley is one of Denmark’s deepest and most magnificent valley surrounded by 50-70 meter forest-clad hillsides. The southern end of the one-kilometre valley river, which springs from the area around Fårup Lake, was originally the site of as many as 15 early industrial mills, two of which are still in operation as museum mills.

    The northern end of the river runs through a protected nature reserve with meadows and wetlands rich in birdlife.

    Unique to the Danish landscape, the area is rich in travertine rock used to build many of Denmark’s earliest stone churches, such as those in Hornstrup, Hover and Jelling.

    Many of the old industrial buildings have been preserved, and several of them have been turned into interesting new homes. These include Hammerværket and Wittrups Klædefabrik.

    There are several opportunities for hiking in the area, including along Grejsdalstien, which is a 16-kilometre hiking route between Vejle, Grejs and Jelling.

    The Vejle Bridge

    2.5 km

    Towering above Vejle Inlet, the impressive Vejle Bridge connects Mølholm in the south with Nøremarken in the north. The Vejle Bridge can be experienced close-up from Dyrehaven (the deer park) in Nørreskoven or from Vejle Marina.

    Construction of the Vejle Bridge began in 1975, following fierce lobbying from local politicians and citizens in Vejle. In the past, traffic was routed through Vejle town itself along the old dual carriageway No. 10. Up through the 1960s and early 1970s, traffic became increasingly congested in the town centre. In 1974, the Danish parliament decided to construct a new motorway from Kolding to Vejle, which included the bridge over Vejle Inlet, and on 1 July 1980, the much-needed motorway bridge could be inaugurated. Price: DKK 350 million.

    There was some initial resistance to the project. It was feared that the bridge would become an eyesore in the beautiful natural landscape surrounding Vejle Inlet. The architects therefore chose to design the bridge in a very neutral style, so that the bridge was naturally suited to the wooded surroundings around Vejle Inlet.

    The bridge over Vejle Inlet is a classic example of a beam bridge, where the bridge deck rests on a number of pillars. In this case, the bridge deck rests on 15 pillars and each of the intermediate bridge sections has a length of 110 metres. The crossing height is 40 meters. The Vejle Bridge is 27.6 metres wide and has a total length of 1,712 metres, making it Denmark's sixth-longest bridge.

    Since the bridge opened, the traffic on the Vejle Bridge has increased so much that today the bridge is Denmark’s busiest motorway bridge. Figures from the Danish Road Directorate show that, on an average day, about 50,000 cars cross the bridge.

    Spinderihallerne

    2.78 km

    Spinderihallerne is one of the town's few industrial complexes to have survived unchanged. The refurbished building was originally a cotton mill from 1896. For over 100 years, the mill was the backbone of Vejle's historic working-class district, Vestbyen.

    Vejle was previously a pioneering town as well as the nation’s undisputed centre of cotton spinning and was known as "Denmark's Manchester". At the time, the cotton industry employed up to 25% of the city's industrial workforce.

    The Spinning Mills testifies to the transformation of Vejle from a small provincial town to a thriving industrial city, including today’s experience and knowledge industry where production has been replaced by creativity and innovation.

    Today, the mill lends its space to a dynamic and creative community of companies working within the multidisciplinary field of design, art and business development. The Spinning Mills is home to dedicated start-ups in addition to a number of cultural institutions, including Kulturmuseet (The Museum of Cultural History), which highlights six inspiring stories about Vejle’s past.

    On weekdays, (except during the holiday season and public holidays) you can lunch in the café at the Spinning Mills, and use the café as a hub. Here anyone can log on to the wireless network.

    The restoration of the Spinning Mills has been carried out by the internationally acclaimed architectural firm Schmidt, Hammer & Lassen Architects and was completed in 2010. In 2015, the complex was expanded with the adjacent Kedelbygningen, which is a centre of technology, design, play and learning.

    Vejle Windmill

    3.65 km

    There has been a mill at the site since 1846, but the current building dates back to 1890, and its equipment is from the 1930s. The building served as a mill until 1960, and its impressive interior machinery gives a good impression of how the mill operated. The mill has contributed to an overall history of milling in Vejle, but has also been in focus in some contexts – for example, during the occupation of Vejle in 1864 or the two occasions when the mill burned, in 1890 and 1938. In the latest fire, only certain parts of the mill were affected, which is otherwise largely intact from 1890.

    Vejle Windmill is open during the summer season from April 1st until the end of the school autumn break in week 42 and can be visited during this period from Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

    Vejle Windmill also houses the Vejle Kunstforening (Vejle Art Society). It is possible to visit the mill outside the season when Vejle Kunstforening is open. Learn more about their opening hours and current exhibitions at vejlekunstforeningmoellen.dk (only in Danish).
