Favrskov Municipality includes the main cities Hadsten, Ulstrup, Hammel and Hinnerup as well as smaller towns and lots of villages. The municipality is located in one of the most beautiful nature areas in Jutland, but is still only a half hour drive from larger cities such as Aarhus, Silkeborg, Randers and Viborg. Denmark’s longest river, Gudenåen, runs through the nothern and western part of the municipality.
In the beautiful nature of the area, there are plenty of opportunities to stay active, for example by mountain biking through the amazing forests, staying the night in a shelter, wandering along Gudenåen, going on fishing trips or biking tours along the bike route Culture By Bike. Here you can among other things conquer one of the country’s most famous biking hills, the Pøt Mølle hill, with an average increase of 9.7 %.
You can also walk up to Busbjerg, which is one of the highest viewpoints of the municipality. From here, you will have a beautiful view of the Gudenå valley. Every summer, Busbjerg forms the natural setting of the yearly Busbjerg Play, where locals since 1946 have arranged musicals and plays.
