The old gendarmsti is 74 km long, and you kan walk from Alsen to the danish/ german border and enjoy the beautifull danish beaches and forrest areas. The beautifull nature is always changing colours and life. It starts in Høruphav and ends in Padborg

Do like the locals: Walk/hike all or parts of this historic and absolutely beautifully situated "boarder control-line". Shelters (free, remember sleeping gear and food) and upscale hotels are placed along the way. Memorable.

I hiked the "Gendarmstien" from Soenderborg to Gammelgab a distance of 23 km. It is a faily easy hike where you will see beaches, historical points, forest and fields. Small camp sites are available during your trip if you want.
