Follow the footsteps of the Borderguards
After reunification in 1920 and until 1958 patrolled border guards (Gendarms) along the border to Germany, a control was made on foot.
This created the so-called “Gendarmsti”, a path which can be followed from the German borderline in Kruså near Flensburg Fjord, along that, around the Broager peninsula and along Sønderborg bay to Høruphav.
On the entire stretch along the coast of approx. 90 km frequented gendarmes as close to the water as possible, thus it is a very beautiful experience to go to the varying nature of gendarmernes footsteps.
The old watermill is established with candle factory, pottery and an incredibly inspiring store. The shop sells handicrafts, handmade candles and ceramics from own workshops, and a sale of homemade sausages and cold cut meat from the farm\’s own production of eco outdoor pigs. There is also a café, decorated with old furniture and effects. It offers homemade bread, cold cuts and cake like home ground coffee.
