Hohenwarte is conveniently located for exploring the surrounding marshlands, popping over the border to Germany, visiting the attractive town of Tønder with its many shopping opportunities, relaxing on Rømø’s fine beaches – and much more.
Weather permitting, we can arrange horse-drawn wagon tours of the marshes.
Horse-riding, treasure hunts, Hohenwarte’s version of ‘Fort Boyard’ and campfire evenings are just some of the activities we organise in the summer months – or when the sun comes out!
