The Nature Trail from Silkeborg to Horsens

Today, the closed down railway trail stretching 61 km between Horsens and Silkeborg takes cyclists, hikers, and horseback riders through luxuriant river valleys, old beech forests, and the hilly Lake Highlands in central Jutland.

A Trail for Everyone

One side of the trail is tarmacked for bikes, wheelchairs, prams, and roller skates, while the rubble in the other side of the trail is particularly intended for horseback riders and hikers.

Even though the trail is a closed town railway, five kilometres of it are still used as an actual railway during summer and around Christmas. Here, an old veteran train takes visitors out on a magnificent route widely known as Denmark’s most beautiful stretch of railway. Here, you can learn more about Bryrup – Vrads vetaran railway.
