The church is open Monday - Friday during normal business hours or by appointment for inspection and personal service.
December, January and February the church is open by appointment
Perhaps the Hojer Church is the first and oldest church, the oldest part of the church dates from around 1100. Originally, the church consisted of ship, choir and apse, but later removed. How likely were the cross arms, tower and porch added during the 1400s.
Distance: 54 km.
On the 54 km long hiking route, you will experience the very special marsh landscape. A landscape that seems wild and unmanageable, but designed in every detail - shaped by human life with and against the water.
On the marsh trail you can feel the wind and see the flat landscape, with nature and especially birds, as far as the eye can see.
The weather makes the experience of the marsh different from day to day, and as the locals say:
"Our main attraction is the sky."
On the trail you will find everything from dikes and pumping stations to marshlands, canals and lakes with unique nature and bird life.
At the edge of the marsh you pass through a number of peculiar cities. Barrels, Møgeltønder and Höjar are located on the Guest. Rudbøl and Norremølle are the only cities built on dykes in Denmark.
The marsh trail is a tramp path where you mostly walk on grass. The marsh trail is cut as needed in the period from May to October, but there are differences between the stretches and the number of steps on the trail, so that high vegetation can occur.
The marsh trail is a walking route. On parts of the trail you walk on dykes,
in the Wadden Sea National Park and in UNESCO World Heritage and thus
through some protected natural areas.
Therefore, observe the signage along the way. The route is different
course, depending on the season, so as not to disturb the birds during the breeding season.
- It is not allowed to go outside the route in the protected area
- It is not allowed to ride and cycle on the route.
- Dogs should always be kept on a leash.
• WASTE BAGS - Take your waste with you. A big part
of the marsh trail is in protected area. Therefore, there is not
always a trash can right nearby.
• WATER BOTTLE - There are some water items along the route,
where you can fill up your water bottle.
• FOOD PACKAGE - There may well be far between places to eat.
So bring a packed lunch to reach that little hunger

the German and Danish Wadden Sea National Park
The Wadden Sea is a large pantry for the approx. 15 million migratory birds, which are kept in the region every spring and autumn to feed themselves. Here is enough to take off, because on every square meter of wad there are up to 100,000 shrimp, worms, snails and mussels.
Hohenwarte is located in the scenic, protected Tøndermarsk in the middle of the Wadden Sea National Park.

Centrally located in Højer, in the old square opposite the church.
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.
Højer Mill is a Dutch wooden windmill from 1857. With its approx. 22 meters and 7 floors is Northern Europe's tallest wooden windmill. It has been restored in 2006-2007. Includes an interesting Mill and Marsh Museum. Enjoy the impressive view from the mill's lap. Open daily from 10-16 from 1 April to 31 October. Coffee can be bought for a delicious South Jutland cake.
Easter Open: March 27 - April 2: 11 am - 5 pm
April - June: Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 5pm
July - August: Monday - Sunday 11am - 5pm
September - March: Winter closed
At the far west is the flat marsh landscape and the Wadden Sea.
Here are vast expanses and a horizon so endless that one can feel quite small on the edge of the sea. The Wadden Sea is, at one moment, a dry bottom, as far as the eye can see, and a few hours later completely flooded by the sea.
The Vidåslus and the Forested Dike protect the entire 12,000 hectares of Tønder marshland and 15,000 inhabitants from flooding from the Wadden Sea.
Højer old locks
The old sluice in Höjer, west of Tønder, was built at the same time as the Höjer-Siltoft dike in 1861. Previously, the ships were able to sail freely into the Höjer Canal. With an open lock in the dike, ships with mast could sail into the port of Höjer, which was built within the dike.
The new lock of Højer was completed in 1981. It consists of three concrete chambers with two wooden sluice gates each. There is a car park and a restaurant close to the lock
Boat people at Vidåen
A time frame from around 1900. From the turn of the century until 1920, there were more than 100 fishermen employed at Rudbøl lake and along Vidåen. Today there are only 15 left. One of the most visible memories from the first time is the old fishing house, built approx. 1870. With this house as its center, in the early 1990s, it succeeded in restoring this ancient environment, in order to show visitors how a small group of citizens lived, worked and worked over 100 years ago. Use the parking space at Höjers Sluse. From here you can walk on the footpath over the dike to the exhibition.
