On the 54 km long hiking route, you will experience the very special marsh landscape. A landscape that seems wild and unmanageable, but designed in every detail - shaped by human life with and against the water.
On the marsh trail you can feel the wind and see the flat landscape, with nature and especially birds, as far as the eye can see.
The weather makes the experience of the marsh different from day to day, and as the locals say:
"Our main attraction is the sky."
On the trail you will find everything from dikes and pumping stations to marshlands, canals and lakes with unique nature and bird life.
At the edge of the marsh you pass through a number of peculiar cities. Barrels, Møgeltønder and Höjar are located on the Guest. Rudbøl and Norremølle are the only cities built on dykes in Denmark.
The marsh trail is a tramp path where you mostly walk on grass. The marsh trail is cut as needed in the period from May to October, but there are differences between the stretches and the number of steps on the trail, so that high vegetation can occur.
The marsh trail is a walking route. On parts of the trail you walk on dykes, in the Wadden Sea National Park and in UNESCO World Heritage and thus through some protected natural areas. Therefore, observe the signage along the way. The route is different course, depending on the season, so as not to disturb the birds during the breeding season.
- It is not allowed to go outside the route in the protected area natural areas. - It is not allowed to ride and cycle on the route. - Dogs should always be kept on a leash.
REMEMBER: • WASTE BAGS - Take your waste with you. A big part of the marsh trail is in protected area. Therefore, there is not always a trash can right nearby. • WATER BOTTLE - There are some water items along the route, where you can fill up your water bottle. • FOOD PACKAGE - There may well be far between places to eat. So bring a packed lunch to reach that little hunger sign up.
