Sightseeing tour on Rømø

Take a ride on the bike or in the car and experience Rømø's sights. The tour goes around the whole island, and takes you very close to historical sites, which tell the story of centuries of walking on the island.

Among them 16 sights you will find both the island's highest point, activity beach, museum and cozy shopping malls. 

If you choose to take the bike, it is Panoramarute 402 (29.05 km) called 'Kommandøren og Kaskelotten' - Where does the bike route's name come from? In the 18th century, the inhabitants of Rømø made a good living from whaling, and the cycle route takes its name from the captain of the whaling ship ("commander" in Dutch) and the large mammals, the whales.

Hiking on Marskstien

Marskstien is a 54 km long route that stretches from Tønder to Højer and back. The route moves through the lush Tøndermarsk, which offers nature and high to the sky.

We recommend dividing the route into three sections - Højer-Tønder-Rudbøl, but if you are looking for a trip that is shorter, Marskstien is divided into loops, so everyone can experience something of the route.

Read much more about the route and the loops here.

Marsh Tower

Get your heart rate up – when you have to climb the 146 steps to the top of Marsk tower, and again when you have to descend the 131 steps to stand on the ground.

The Marsk Tower is part of the Marsk Camp, which also has a tournament-approved mini golf course. But the 18 holes, where there is a copy of the Marsh tower, Markmandshuset and Rømø with the wide sandy beach, can easily be played by children.
