Bike rental i August

For four weekends in August, you can rent a bicycle at Esrum Abbey and get the opportunity to explore the North Zealand landscape around Esrum Abbey on two wheels. Starting from Esrum Abbey and the future visitor center for National Park “Kongernes Nordsjælland”, you can explore one or more of the many cycle routes in the area. You get a map and 3 trip suggestions to inspire you – because with the bike you can easily experience some of the many exciting things that lie a little further away from the monastery.

Suggested tours, each with their own history in the area

You can, for example, cycle along Lake Esrum to some of the observation towers nearby or visit the area’s three largest oak trees. If you are more into historical experiences, you can cycle north to an essential place in the story of how firewood was transported on heavy barges along the Esrum firewood canal to Dronningmølle, from where it could be sailed to Copenhagen.

All tours are presented on a map that you will receive with the bike.

Tour suggestions:

The route goes south through Gribskov and visits the three thickest oak trees in order, so that you visit the thickest oak just west of Esrum Abbey.
