Himmerland is bounded by the Limfiord to the north and west and by the Mariager Fiord to the south. This is why Himmerland can by characterized as a peninsula. In the northern part of Himmerland is Aalborg, the 4th biggest city with its abundance of attractions and cultural offers.
Himmerland is known for Rold Skov, the biggest forest in Denmark. The forest consists in a most varied landscape of heather-covered hills, various streams and beautiful forest lakes. The forest is a most exciting place and surely worth a visit. The landscape called Rebild Bakker (hills) is part of the forest and is probably the most well-known and popular area.
The landscape of Himmerland has been formed by the glacial age. Both Rebild Bakker (hills) and the Muldbjerge illustrate this in a perfect way. You can enjoy the most beautiful view from the Muldbjerge where the impressive morainic knolls rise right up in the air from the elsewhere very flat area. The highest point of Mulbjerge is 43 meters. From here you can see Kattegat to the east, and to the west you have a view to the reserve called Lille Vildmose. In Lille Vildmose the animal life is rich and interesting. There are golden eagles, wild boars, cranes, otters and many other animals.
Besides Aalborg there are various charming towns and villages in Himmerland, among others Hobro, Mariager and Hadsund situated along the Mariager Fiord. All of them have wonderful views of the fiord.
Along the Kattegat coast, on Djursland og Mols and south of Århus there are several lovely and family friendly beaches with fine-grained sand, and the water here is low and rather calm. But also in the fiords of Horsens and Vejle you will find fine beaches and quiet water ideal for a swim.
The eastern part of Jutland is characterised bythe many royal boroughs located by a fiord. From south to north you will find e.g. Aabenraa, Haderslev, Kolding, Vejle, Horsens, Randers, Aalborg - and not least Aarhus, where you will find world class culture.
A brief ferry ride from Hals to Egense takes us further on to the fishing port Øster Hurup, beautifully located at the Kattegat between the natural area Lille Vildmose and Mariager Fiord. Here you will find perhaps the most child-friendly beach in Denmark, where the children love the shallow and clam waters.
Halfway between the German border and Skagen – in the middle of Denmark you will find Jutland's "nose" Djursland. Besides a large selection of family attractions like the amusement park Djurs Sommerland, the tropical zoo Randers Regnskov, Kattegatcentret, Ree Park Safari and Skandinavisk Dyrepark, the national park Nationalpark Mols Bjerge and the peninsula's very childfriendly beaches are some of the highlights of Djursland.
Jutland's capital Aarhus is with the art gallery Aros and the museum Den Gamle By very well-known for the Danish people. A secret gem just south of Aarhus, the coast of Juelsminde which is one of the most scenic and varied in Denmark. You will find forest-clad slopes and authentic natural beaches north of Vejle Fiord and sandy beaches at Juelsminde. From 1864 to 1920 the Danish/German border was at the old fishing village Hejlsminde that has many holiday homes and a marina today. The closeness to Germany is visible from Kolding and to the south. Obviously most visible in Sønderborg and Dybbøl Mølle, which were the centre of the war in 1864. The list of attractions - historic, cultural, fishing and bathing waters - are matched by the number of the large selection of holiday homes on the small island Als and near Flensborg Fiord, which gives you a location close to everything.
