Enjoy a wonderful bike ride along country roads around the Stenderup Peninsula, which juts out into the Little Belt!
Kolding - Sønder Stenderup - Sønder Bjert
The waterway is an attractive bike ride along Kolding Inlet. It follows national route 5 most of the way. The route starts at Koldinghus and continues to the Stenderup peninsula where you can enjoy beautiful views over Kolding Inlet and Lillebælt.
The old Stenderup forests, Nørreskov, Midtskov and Sønderskov, stretch along the coast of Lillebælt and offer an extensive network of paths. Here you can see the remainder of the large Farrisskov forest, which in the Middle Ages formed a belt across the whole of Jutland. In the forests, you can discover 5500-yearold dolmens and more than 3000-year-old grave mounds from the Bronze Age.
The route leads onwards to Solkær Meadows, a unique nature area with a lake, water-logged meadows and a rich bird life. Stop at Skamlingsbanken and experience one of Denmark’s famous landmarks. Skamlingsbanken is 113 metres above sea level, and there are great views of the entire area between Kolding and Christiansfeld from the top. Skamlingsbanken is best known from the folk festivals that were held in the years 1843–1859 in support of the Danish cause in South Jutland. Today, Skamlingsbanken is a popular excursion spot. Since 1998, free opera concerts take place here during summer with up to 30,000 spectators.
