The clover leaf routes in and around Bogense are a great way to exercise and experience the beautiful nature and the lovely market town.
You can walk, run or bike, and there is something for everyone to enjoy along the four routes.
You can find a small map of the routes at the starting place at Bogense Harbour.
The green route is a nice city walk through Bogense. You'll see the Manneken Pis statue, the old merchant's house from the 18th century, the old town hall of Bogense, the cozy old square with the small buildings, Bogense Church and and back again along the seaside to the old harbour.
The blue route takes you to some of Nordfyn's most beautiful scenery along the coast, overlooking the islets Mågeøerne and the deserted island Æbelø, to the former reclaimed of Gyldensteen Strand with beautiful lakes, fjordlands and meadows. From here, the route leads past the golf club HC Andersen Golf, the Fredskoven woods and the old market town of Bogense.
The red route goes past the pond Barfods Dam and across the beautiful meadows near Bogense, where you can see lots of birds. You pass by the meadows Vestre Enge and Fogense, formerly a shallow fjord area until it was dammed in the 19th century. The route also goes past Bogense Marina, where you can enjoy the beautiful view.
The black route passes three manor houses, namely Christianslund at the golf club HC Andersen Golf, built in 1802, Gyldensteen Castle from around 1400 and Harridslevgaard Castle, which in its current reincarnation dates back to 1606. The route leads through the beautiful meadow Ålebækengen and the two idyllic villages of Smidstrup and Harritslev, and you have good opportunities to admire the old buildings along the entire route.
