Nørlund and Torstedlund Forests

Nørlund and Torstedlund forests are privately owned, and must only be entered in accordance with the regulation for private forests, which are;

  • You can walk in the forest from 06:00 until sundown
  • You have to stay within the marked trails and paths
  • No motorized vehicles are allowed in the forest

On the map over Nørlund and Torstedlund forests, you will find three hiking routes (OBS. the map is only in Danish).

One route passes by the Airmen’s Stone (11), in Danish named Flyverstenen. The stone is a memorial dedicated to a British bomber which crashed in April of 1945. 

Another trail passes by the grave of the last private owner of Nørlund Castle, Georg Alexis Hornemann. He is buried with his horse and two dogs.

The last trail passes by Manepælen, where legend tells that a large stake was used as a spear to impale a witch,  and that the stake ensures that the witch cannot rise from her grave.

These trails have been marked with yellow on the map and in the forest.
