Grindsted Engsø is an artifical lake landscaped in 1971-1972. The area around the lake is a popular recreational area for locals. There are many hiking, biking and running routes around Engsøen.
Swimming in Grindsted Engsø is not permitted. This was decided in consultation with the then official medical institution, among other reasons, due to the sediment's mercury content.

The 130 km long marked nature trail leads you through landscapes formed by the latest Ice Ages. From Blåvandshuk to Bække, you walk in the flat landscape which was ice free in the latest Ice Age and which today consists of flat moorland and plantations. Near Bække you pass the ridge and towards Vejle you walk through the melt water valley which was formed under the ice cap of the latest Ice Age. Today hiking in the nature across Jutland along the Coast to Coast Trail offers a rich variated nature landscape, wide open spaces, and peace and quiet. Long sections of the trail are very close to the stream courses, which is unique.
The Coast to Coast Trail is a hiking route offering versatile nature experiences with flora and fauna from meadows, woods, and fields. You can choose to walk the tour in one or more sections or to walk short tours or circular tours along the hiking trail. The trail course is well-equipped with primitive overnight accommodations. Map materials and guides for the hiking tour from coast to coast can be found here: http://www.kyst-kyststien.dk/praktiske.htm (in Danish only).
Following this link, you can find further information about locations where you can stay overnight along the middle part of the Coast to Coast Trail between Hovborg and Bække.
In Hovborg it is possible to shop or to buy a meal at Hovborg Kro (Inn). In the Hovborg area, primarily the large moorland plantations and their cultural history are interesting. Most of the plantations were established by rich men from Copenhagen, who would like to secure hunting ground and to support the national romantic afforestation after the loss of Southern Jutland in 1864. The Hedeselskabet was established here by Dalgas.
Near Bække the Coast to Coast Trail crosses the national hiking route Hærvejen (Ancient Military Road). The Hærvejen has passed through Bække. We now this with certainty. In Bække you find shopping and overnight accommodation. The Coast to Coast Trail passes the historic Bække Monument, Klebæk Høje, where the traces of 3 periods of history can still be seen.
Holme Å is situated in a landscape with high spruce plantation, broad-lived brushwood, moorland and sandy fields. The landscape is characterized by the cultivation and plantation of the moorland. Holme Å is basically not regulated and has its rise in the moor Gispel Mose near the town of Bække. At certain locations the stream is so strong that rocks and sand can be seen at the bottom of the stream. At several locations in the river valley, you can see sprints or water squeezed out at the bottom of the slopes. This is called ”confined groundwater” because the ground water level above the slopes is higher than the bottom of the slope and this squeezes the water out. Another result of the phenomenon is marsh plants growing on the slopes.
A rich plant and animal life is found in and around Holme å. Along the nature trails you will find e.g. bulrush, soft rush, common reed, marsh marigold, spiraea and water avens. On the meadows you will also find water forget-me-not and small-leaved golden saxifrage. Of birds should be mentioned e.g. heron, grey wagtail, kingfisher, and water ouzel. Foxes and grass frogs can also be found in the area. In the water there are rainbow trout, river trout, roach, eel, pike and perch. Holme Å got its name from several islets – very small islands in the middle of the stream. These islets no longer exist.
Københavnerplantager (Copenhagener plantations)
Holme Å runs through the characteristic area near the brook Baldersbæk, where the Copenhagener wholesale dealer Holger Petersen bought sandy moorland and established a large plantation with villa. From here the stream continues towards west, where it joins Varde Å near Karsgårde Sø and continues out into the Wadden Sea.
In 1999, 18 beavers were set out on the Klosterheden moorlands south east of the town of Lemvig. It is said that it may be some of these beavers, which have spread to Holme Å, where the first beavers were registered in 2012. They have cut down trees close to the bridge Høllund Bro, built beaver lodges and dams. The beaver requires access to water all year. It lives near large and small streams, lakes, waterholes, and peat banks.
Meet Holme Å here
You can walk close to the stream and its nature either on the Coast to Coast Trail or some of the local hiking routes in the town of Hovborg. The area with the green activity park of the river valley Holmeådalen is next to the stream. The stream is crossed by the Grinsted-Holsted road and continues down through the town of Hovborg.
The 600m2 exhibition in the Culture House displays what the museum has collected, registered and preserved over the past 55 years from the Ølgod district´s history in the period 1850 - 1900.
Emphasi has been placed on showing the simple tools from agriculture, housekeeping and trades in the pre-industrial agricultural community. The exhibition also attempts to illustrate the relationship between people, tools and agriculture. The exhibition´s focal point is the history of the cooperative movement, including the establishment of Hjedding, Denmark´s first cooperative dairy.
Entrance is free. At the museums entrace you will find a sign with a phonenumber. Call the number and ascertain the password for the entrance. No additional calling fees charged.
The Egtved Girl was discovered on Thursday, February 24, 1921. Farmer Peter Platz was removing the last remnants of a burial mound on his field when he came across a heavily carved oak trunk.
The excavation was conducted by the National Museum, and thus the oak coffin was subsequently transported to Copenhagen. When opened, it revealed a cowhide bag at the top. Beneath it lay a woven blanket of brown wool, and beneath the blanket lay the deceased herself—a 160 cm tall young girl, her semi-long hair almost concealing her face, and a small bronze earring.
The girl later became known as the Egtved Girl.
Belt plate of bronze and cord skirt
She lay on her back, her skin well-preserved, but no bones remained. She wore a brown wool blouse, and on each wrist was a bronze ring. Under the blouse, the iconic bronze belt plate could be discerned. A skirt made of twisted brown woolen cords was wrapped twice around her waist.
At her left shin, there was a bundle of clothes containing the burnt bones of a 5-6-year-old child. At her feet stood a birch bark container with remnants of a kind of sweet honeyed beer.
A flowering yarrow in the coffin indicated that the burial took place in the summer months. The girl died at the age of approximately 16-18 years.
The World of The Egtved Girl: A new experience center in progress
The Vejle Museums are actively working on realizing a large new museum project that aims to tell the fascinating story of the Egtved Girl. Right there, where she was laid to rest on a summer day 3,500 years ago.
The entire original Egtved find is exhibited at the National Museum in Copenhagen. So, you'll need to visit the capital to see Egtved Girl herself.
At the zoo, you go on exciting walks and meet many fascinating animals, including gorillas, buffaloes, lions, giant otters and many others. Along the way, you'll pass Europe’s largest penguin facility. Through the glass pane you can see the many penguins swimming under water, and from platforms you can see them throw themselves into the waves and waddle around on land. The park also houses Europe’s largest Andean bear facility, where five bears are at home.
At the park's many savannahs, you can drive close to the animals and see giraffes, zebras, antelopes and lions cross the road right in front of you. You can choose to take the safari in your own car or on a safari bus.
GIVSKUD ZOO also has Denmark’s largest dinosaur exhibit, where you will find more than 50 life-sized dinosaurs, ranging from the 40-metre 'long neck' to the 'dangerous' Tyrannosaurus Rex.
You can also look forward to seeing the park’s many special exhibitions, including World Development Goals Park and PlasticPlanet.
There are many playgrounds and activity camps for children, a Baby Service Centre for very young children and lots of cosy oases for everyone.
GIVSKUD ZOO is only 70 km from Varde and 20 km from Billund and Vejle.

A quaint little town visited by more than 150,000 tourists annually, and not without reason. Jelling boasts some of Europe’s most prominent Viking Age monuments, which in 1994 were included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.
The two mighty burial mounds and two rune stones erected by the kings Gorm the Old and Harald Bluetooth in the 900s and Jelling Church mark the transition from paganism to Christianity and can also be seen as Denmark’s ‘birth certificate’, since one of the rune stones carries the oldest inscription with mention of Denmark as a nation and the Danes as a people.
Jelling Church was erected around 1100. The Romanesque stone church was constructed on the site of Harald Bluetooth’s wooden church from the 900s. In 2000, King Gorm the Old was reburied in the chamber tomb in the church.
The amazing Kongernes Jelling experience centre lets you explore the world of the Vikings and the exciting history of the Jelling Monuments in immersive, interactive exhibitions. The rooftop terrace offers a magnificent view of the monument area, and through digital binoculars you can see what Jelling looked like 1,000 years ago.
But Jelling has more to offer than Viking Age monuments. It is also a place of outstanding natural beauty, not least south of the village around the lake, Fårup Sø, which is an area with numerous natural springs, extensive woodlands and open meadows and pastures. The lake is a popular destination for cycling and hiking holidays and offers abundant angling. You can rent water bikes and rowing boats. And there is even a Viking ship.
Jelling and its surroundings offer several excellent restaurants and good accommodations.
