The Mols Bjerge National Park, in East Jutland, is one of the most rugged and varied landscapes in Denmark, with many rare animal and plant species. The park covers 180 km² and is named after the area’s best known natural feature.
You can see spectacular views of the whole park at the Jernhatten ridge. The central area of the park is made up of high heathlands, forests and large open pastures, while along the coast there are many great beaches to discover.
You can see otters at Stubbe and Lange lakes, in the north of the park. To the west, you will find the Kaløs marshes and forests are rich with flora and fauna, including rare insects in the park’s trees.
There are many Bronze Age sites in the park, with visible mounds to explore. Ancient towns, villages, churches and old manors tell the story of the area’s development over time. Visit Kalø Castle Ruin, the remnants of a royal Middle Age castle. The coastal village of Ebeltoft is a treat, with big attractions such as the Jutland Frigate and Glass Museum.
You can enjoy a good network of sign-posted cycle and walking routes throughout the park and along the coast you will find quiet, child-friendly swimming beaches. The area also offers you some great fishing spots.
