More about the lake and the spring route

In Central Jutland, on the Jutland ridge, Denmark's two largest rivers, Gudenåen and Skjernåen, originate only a few hundred meters apart and run in different directions towards the sea. In the same place, Hærvejen crosses the river valley, where it has been Jutland's main road no.1 for millennia. Oak thickets grow everywhere in the landscape and the area is full of exciting cultural history framed by beautiful and varied nature. 

Gudenåen, with its 160 km, is Denmark's longest stream, while Skjernåen, with its 94 km, is the 4th longest and the richest in water.

The two streams have their source a few hundred meters apart in the same north-south valley depression at the main watershed on the Jutland ridge. The area consists of 596 hectares of protected oak scrub, meadows and meadows.
