The best long routes
Denmark was one of the first countries in the world to set up a linked, national cycle route network. When the route network was set up in 1993, it consisted of 10 routes.
In 2002, the Limfjord Route was added as the last national cycle route.
These 11 routes have a total length of more than 4,000 kilometres.
Here we present some of the best routes in Denmark.
Vestkystruten Rudbøl - Skagen (562,51 km)

Elsinore-Gedser – National route 9 (314,22 km)
The Danish section of the international cycle route from Berlin to Copenhagen and on to Elsinore offers spectacular natural scenery with a wide range of cultural highlights. The sea plays the starring role most of the way.

Around Bornholm - National route 10 (110,72 km)
Taking a cycle ride around this rocky and picturesque island is something that has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The 105 kilometres can be done in one day, but why not divide the trip into four days and experience the island and its round churches, rocks and unique scenery more fully? The bicycle is the best place from which to view all of the highlights of the island.
The Limfjord Route - National route 12 (642,28 km)
Limfjorden is one of the most beautiful areas in Denmark and a cycle on National Route 12 is perhaps the best way to experience the wonderful scenery. Remember to bring swimwear and a pair of binoculars – as you will be needing both.
