About the route
The route follows the old country roads that meander across the landscape and offer local detours along paths and gravel lanes. There are plenty of attractions along the route, such as the Land Art location Tørskind Grusgrav, the estate of Engelsholm Castle and the source of the river of Gudenåen. Nonetheless, the route is called a village hiking route due to the intention of relating the stories of village life – whimsical stories of people who are deeply rooted in their local communities. You will meet the locals and learn what makes their village special.
The kongran.vejle.dk website offers route information and links for social media so that you can learn more about the route that you are about to embark on.
