The fjord country – manor houses and exciting farm shops

Great nature experiences along Horsens Fjord

South of Odder - and to the north of one of Denmark's most beautiful fjords - you will experience soft hills, hilly forests with beautiful vistas and a flat coastal landscape. Here is what we call the fjord country with easy access to nature, signposted routes and east access to the fjord.

The manors shaped the area

In the Odder area, you can see many old mansions whose history dates back several hundred years. Especially in the area along Horsens Fjord, there is a large concentration of estates and manor houses whose owners' wealth and need for labour were a major factor in the development of the area. Many legends and exciting stories relate to the previous owners and the often-violent events that took place in the impressive buildings.

Local produce, specialties and flea market purchases

The cosy villages south of Odder attract creative enthusiasts and entrepreneurs and the farms outside the towns produce and sell produce. The area is full of farm shops, small roadside stalls and specialty shops. Artists have open galleries and you can go in search of antiques and flea market purchases. We will guide you to the small and large gems of the area.
