Hiking from Marsh to Beach

Sunken ancient roads and old bridges. I think it is fascinating to imagine what challenges people had in the old days when they travelled through the landscapes.

People have been very exposed to all kinds of weather with the equipment they had back then. Passages through wetlands must have been very challenging.

Ellemosen is a wonderful marsh with a 2,800-year-old paved path, and a 5,200-year-old pile-built bridge, which today is hidden underwater.

Now new paths have been established in the marsh, but for a completely different purpose. Birds and beavers are waiting for your visit.

Far out in the marsh is a very nice and cozy hide in an old pumping station.

Inside the hide, there are lots of information about what kind of birds you can see in the marsh.

The picture on the right shows the 2,800 old paved path, and on the horizon Tibirke Church is seen as a small red dot.

DSC08167On my way towards Tisvilde Beach, I make a detour in the hills of Tibirke Bakker, up to a place called Udsigten, ‘the view’.
To the right, I see Arresø with Arrenæs and to the left a glimpse of Kullen’s ‘blue mountains’ in Sweden. In the middle of it all lies Holløse Bredning, the marsh.

I continue my walk down to Skovkærsvej in the forest, Tisvilde Hegn and out to the sea.

  1. Lovely countryside. As much as I live the mountains walks beside the sea, whether on a beach, cliffs or salt marshes can be very enjoyable. Especially on a day like this one 😀

    • Thanks a lot. When planning a hike, I search for contrasts in the landscape, but I have my limitations in terms of heights 🥴😊
      I always enjoy your walks!!

  2. I love this. It’s a landscape I’d love to walk – you have such huge, amazing skies! I really need to see more of your country.

    • Thank you, Margaret!! The skies are my mountains 😊 They tower up in the sky, adding new dimensions to the landscape. Love them too!!

    • Thank you!! Actually my description doesn’t justify this wonderful area. There are interesting geological facts that elevate the story further. Have to return with more information another day 😊
