Welcome to Silkeborg Søhøjlandet - Outdoor Capital of Denmark
Silkeborg and the surrounding Lake District is an amazing - and at times forgotten - gem in the Danish landscape. With more than 50 lakes and a forest area, which streches beyond 224 square kilometers Silkeborg Søhøjlandet is the largest nature area in the entire country. This combined with the cultural and art heritage found in Silkeborg makes the perfect destination for families, couples and friends looking for new experiences and time to relax.
Located close to the major airports (Billund, Aalborg and Aarhus) and highways you can reach all the major sights in Jutland within an hour and half. This is a benefit that many families from Sweden, Norway and Germany take advantage of when visiting Denmark, as they want to visit Legoland, Aarhus, Vesterhavet and spend a day canoeing along Gudenåen within a short period of time.
