Nature National Park Kompedal Plantage
Kompedal Plantage is one of Denmark’s national nature parks and is an unbelievably beautiful stretch of scenery around Silkeborg. Go for a walk between the moss-clad hillsides, open heather plains, coniferous forest, and outwash valleys.
Kompedal Plantation is a large forest plantation with many long and straight gravel roads and an orderly geometry. It is here that the Battle of Grathe Heath unfolded on October 23, 1157.
It is also the location where, in 1932, a conscientious objector camp was established, which later served as a refugee camp for German refugees. Today, the camp functions as a nature school.
