Store Dyrehave – a Unesco World Heritage Site

This is one of the biggest forests around and one of our favourites. It has some very varied and beautiful scenery, as well as challenging mountain bike tracks and a lot of orienteering posts. The forest also has a lot of history as it was established by the Danish king Christian the 4th 400 years ago. The forest was used for hunting and horse breeding, and there is a star-shaped road system which was used for par force hunting. In the center of the star, you can still see some “road sign stones” that were put up 400 years ago.  The place is so unique that is has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
