Rode Mose is one of the finest and most varied moorland bogs in eastern South Jutland. Since the 1980s, in order to preserve the biological qualities, work has been done to make the bog more wet. You can get lucky and spot the increasingly rare Willow Tit. Spotted Flycatcher are breeding in the area and Common Crane are often seen as well.



3 parking lots along Mosevej. I usually go for the one in the middle, the others are rather cramped. A hiking route of about 3 km is marked around Rode Mose.
