Gods & Myths

Scattered across the landscape are traces from the fascinating history of Central Jutland. Some are still there to be seen, while others are hidden underground.

The traces are everywhere, from the open West Jutland landscapes and the rough coastline, across Central Jutland's wooded Søhøjland ’Lake District’ to the fjords, rolling hills, and cliffs on the nose of Djursland.

At all times and in all places man has lived and left his mark.

The Germans were active in most parts of Denmark, including the part of Jutland which is today the Central Denmark Region.

Crossing Jutland from west to east you will pass sites telling their story of the presence of German occupation.

If you visit and explore them, whether they are museums, memorial sites, or monuments in concrete and steel, you will soon discover that the past holds many a fascinating, terrifying, and – for current Danish generations – immediately meaningful stories.
