South Jutland's location as a border region, makes it special - especially in a historical light. After the reunion in 1920 the border and the shipping routes were controlled by the border gendarme. Patrolling was done by foot along the coast, and each gendarme had a particular area under his jurisdiction.
The path has be recreated and begins or ends in Padborg at the border to Germany, from here you can follow the inlet Flensborg Fjord to Broagerland, continue along Vemmingbund and Dybbøl Banke to Sønderborg. After crossing the sound Als Sund via the bridge Kong Christian X´s Bro the hike continues on the island Als, by the harbour and beach promenade in Sønderborg, past the forest Sønderskoven and the city Høruphav to the village Skovby on Southern Als.
You will be following the coast most of the way and will be walking through a very diverse landscape with forests, bogs and meadows in the historical landscape.
