Heritage District in the Aarhus area

Heritage District

This is Denmark Classic. Take a walk along the old 'Hærvejen' ox route – the Ancient Road – stretching from the top to the bottom of Denmark and passing through the towns of Viborg and Silkeborg.

In Silkeborg, you can go see one of the world's best-preserved peat bog bodies, the Tollund Man, who dates back to around 400 BC.

He was probably murdered some 2,500 years ago, but he’s still looking pretty good! So is Viborg Cathedral, but then again; it’s only 900 years old, and a couple of hundred years younger than Viborg itself. Take a walk on the wild side of history in Heritage District.
