Stage description

Leaving Kliplev, the E1 takes us first through an industrial estate. From the road, a path on our right leads to a railway line. Here we turn right and head in a westerly direction. Cross over the rail line at a level crossing and continue to head west. If you're looking for a place to spend the night, you can find Pension Lindely just to your left at this point.

The route continues on asphalt roads until we reach the small housing estate of Perbøl. A path to the right takes us off the road, which we then follow until Gejlå. Here we turn right. After roughly 200 metres the path leaves the road to the right taking us into the Bommerlund Plantage, crossing over a small stone bridge – the Gejlå Bro. A few metres on, the Bommerlundstenen, a memorial stone, can be seen on the side of the path. A sheltered campsite is just a couple of hundred metres away.

Even though the path runs parallel to a street for the next 4 kilometres as we head south through the woods, this section is quite pretty and pleasant to walk. The route continues, though less appealing: As we leave the woods, the E1 follows a busy country road for one kilometre, crossing the E45 motorway.

After the roundabout the route takes us right on a much quieter agricultural road to the small town of Bov. As we leave the south part of the town, there is a section of a historical trading route. A little later, as the the E1 follows a small bend to the right it leaves this Hærvej on the left. From here the route follows the Gendarmstien (the gendarm path), marked with a symbol of a police officer on a white background.

The winding and hilly path is quite diversified and offers some beautiful views as we head towards the border. As we leave Denmark, we take with us some fine final views before we come to a road that takes us to the German border. Here there is a bus stop on the route between Flensburg and Kruså.

Sights

Bommerlund plantation

On a nice path the E1 runs through the Bommerlund plantation. To the north it crosses the Gejlå Bro, a stone bridge from 1818, and a few metres to the south the Bommerlund stone reminds you of the Bommerlund Kro inn that once stood here. Legend has it that a French knight left the innkeeper the recipe for the famous "Bommerlunder".
