The “Camino Haderslev Headland” route has borrowed its name from the world-renowned Camino de Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route, which, along with Ancient Road Hærvejen, runs through Haderslev. In this case, however, it’s approx. 100-km addition to the “real” Camino with the area’s nine churches making up points of reference.
The picturesque and culture-historical route runs through fields and woods, along gravel tracks, roads and cycle paths. The route features views of hills and water, thus making up an attractive and varied trip. You start at Haderslev Cathedral, with the route taking in another eight fascinating churches. From here, the route returns north through the deer park of Dyrehaven and alongside the pond of Haderslev Dam back to the city’s cathedral, thus completing the route. Camino Haderslev Headland has – in addition to the many churches – several historic buildings, natural gems and quaint attractions. These include Bulladen barn at the farm of Brummers Gård on the island of Aarø. The barn dates from 1650 and is an exclusively wooden construction that reflects designs going back to around the year 1000. The route also runs past the farm of Ulttanggård from 1884, which is a German-inspired architectural gem that successfully mixes Old Norse and gothic styles.
