The forest

Photo: VisitSydsjælland-Møn

Pack a picnic basket, grab a butterfly net and go on a picnic. On The South Coast of Denmark, the options are almost endless. Beautiful forests, rolling landscapes and winding paths along the edge of the sea. 

Forest rules

Remember, there are rules for where and when you can use the woods and forests in Denmark – and the rules are different depending on whether the woods or forest are public or private. You are allowed in public woods and forests 24 hours a day – and you can walk on roads, paths and on the forest floor itself if you are on foot. If you are on a bike, then stick to roads and trails. You are allowed in private woods and forests from 6 am until sunset – but you are only allowed on roads and paths whether you are on foot or cycling.

You can read more about what you can do in nature here: www.miljøministeriet.dk.
