Nydamstien

The Nydam Path (7 km) starts at Sottrup forest. You can follow a route along the water, leading past the place where Prussian soldiers embarked in rowboats to capture Als in 1864, and past Sandbjerg Manor which the Prussians used as a headquarters during the war. Continue past Denmark’s famous bog, Nydam Mose, where three boats dating from around 310 AD were excavated in 1863. One of the boats, the Nydambåden, is exhibited at Gottorp Castle in Schleswig, Germany. At the naust (boat house) in Sottrup Storskov you can see the reconstruction Nydam Tveir.
