Guide to other activities in Bakkelandet
The Uncovered Bridge was originally built in 1899 as part of a railway line connecting Horsens and Bryrup. At the inauguration, it was the highest bridge in the Nordic Region.
That is why, today, you almost feel transported to the Wild West when walking, running or cycling across the gorge while enjoying the magnificent view of the rushing river Gudenåen.
In the area, you find tables and benches, a paddock for horses and good chances of spotting dippers and kingfishers.
And not too far away, the town of Brædstrup is found as well as many other activities, eateries and cosy places offering accommodation. There are also good nature trails that you can experience on foot, by bike or on horseback.
For these reasons, we recommend that you set aside some time for other experiences when visiting The Uncovered Bridge.
