Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

About Ballum Slusekro

Ballum Slusekro was erected in the midst of this beautiful nature 1914 - 1915 in connection with the construction of the ballum dike. The property, which at first was both a tavern and the residence of the lock master, was until the end of 1993 a holding tavern. It quickly became a tradition that the inn should be the target for the meetings of the dig team, and that has not been changed. As then, there is still accommodation available, and old-fashioned traditional Danish food is served in the inn. Bon appetite.

Ballum camping

Welcome to our quiet and wind protected nature campsite at the Wadden Sea National Park. Our campsite is only 20 Minutes from Romo with Northern Europe's widest sandy beach. The campsite is located in the middle of beautiful marshland, a paradise for birdwatchers, not far from the historic towns of Tønder, Møgeltønder and Ribe.

Holidays & Accommodation


Ballum Camping is located just outside the town of Ballum, between meadow and field. Cities with different attractions are close by, and Romo, Mandø and Legoland Billund are also not far away.

Hiking and cycling

Our campsite is in a beautiful area with many hiking opportunities. Are you more into cycling ?: The North Sea Cycle route leads directly past our campsite.


We love dogs and our dogs are always on holiday. We have noticed that it is often difficult to find a campsite where dogs are welcome or can participate at a fair price. That's why your dog is very welcome here at Ballum Camping. (Maximum 2 dogs per seat, multiple dogs on request.)

In the cabins and safari tents you can of course also bring your dog (Max. 1 dog). Outside the campsite there are many hiking opportunities.


“Camping in the winter, it's not for me at all. Cold bathroom, no living room, no thanks. ”This mindset has many people before trying winter camping with us.

We are not like the others - our bathroom is heated, in the living room you will find a TV, a wood stove and sofas.

WiFi is available throughout.

Also in the winter months, the Wadden Sea is a very beautiful landscape and is not without reason part of UNESCO's cultural and natural heritage. The diverse animal world, especially during the winter months, is a great experience for photographers and nature lovers.

If the weather makes it possible and there is snow on the wide marshland, you have the opportunity to take wonderful walks.

Try our winter camping at Ballum Camping.

We welcome you.

This is a "both" and "bike ride." In bicycles both in Denmark and Germany. You both see the story of the hardworking
farmers in the Tønder marsh and the history of the impressive royal mansion, Schackenborg. And the bike ride goes through both the small peaceful villages and to Denmark's oldest market town, Tønder, with trade and activity.

The tour is described here based on the Tønder Art Museum (1), but you can start anywhere. Østergade, which is the pedestrian street in Tønder, is highly recommended despite the fact that you have to pull the bike. Here you will find, among other things, Tønder-Romo Tourist Association (2) and several restaurants and cafes.

At the railway track, follow the cycle path to Plantagevej, which leads out of Tønder. The tour now goes towards the former comforts of Hans Royal Highness Prince Joakim in the form of Schackenborg Castle (3), which is located in Denmark's most beautiful village, Møgeltønder. With high ceilings, close to marsh and sea, Møgeltønder lies and most of all resembles an adventure with the beautiful cobbled castle street.

On the road north of Møllevej you see the signs towards Slotfeldt (4). In the fantastic barn there is an exhibition about the Golden Horns found here and about the history of the area. Trade and operation are characterized by Höjer (5), which offers two unique sausage factories, Höjer Sausser and Marsk Sausser. It may be difficult to choose, but the purchase can be enjoyed at Höjer Mill, which since 1857 has served as a landmark for the city. Just south of Höjer you can take a detour to Höjer Sluse (1 km) or Vidå Sluse (2 km).

The barrel marsh (6) is an impressive sight. Sky and sea and Denmark's largest meadow of approx. 2500 hectares. Here is a rich wildlife, and with quiet pedal turns you can enjoy both the sound of the many birds and the sight of lambs grazing peacefully in the beautiful surroundings.
At the end of Siltoftvej lies the old border crossing between Denmark and Germany (7). The road is followed to the German side, where the route goes along narrow roads towards Rosenkranz / Rudbøl (8). At this historic border crossing, people of all ages have been photographed by a historic stone in the road. By standing with scattered legs in the middle of the stone, one stands with one leg in Denmark and one leg in Germany. On the Danish side of the border at Rudbøl Lake (9) a well-deserved rest can be taken on the benches by the lake shore.

The view invites relaxation and immersion, and you easily forget that the legs have already passed many kilometers. The new forces can now be used on the road to Møgeltønder, where there is often a fresh wind. In Møgeltønder it is recommended to take around the Reunion Stone (10) from 1939 before the walk along Villegårdsvej and then tramp past ECCO (11) before Tønder reappears. The beautiful market town of Tønder is perfect for relaxing after a long and eventful day. Here, there are plenty of opportunities to quench the thirst or get hungry, while observing the city's beautiful buildings.
