For a longer stroll take a walk north along the lake for more birding and culture heritage, or continue up beyond the gorge to check the heath area (Stanghede) for Red-backed Shrike and Whinchat.

Bring a telescope only if you want to look far out on the lake.

A playground is nearby and up the road is a nature school.



Park by the restaurant Niels Bugge Kro, or by the Nature School to the north. Walk the area (the walking trail on the map is about 4 km). Some paths can be slippery in wet conditions.
