Frederikshåb Plantage
Grene Sande
Gyttegård Plantation

Gyttegård Plantation is one of Billund municipality's most visited and most beautiful nature areas. This is partly due to the fact, that you can experience Grene Sande's sandy dunes and open plains with heath. Even though you are in the middle of the country, you feel like you are on the West Coast. The reason why Grene Sande looks like this is that the area was shaped in the time after the ice age and again by the time in the 17th and 18th centuries, when flying sand came far into Jutland. You actually get the feeling of standing in a huge sandbox - approx. 400 meters long and 100 meters wide.
However, it is clear that there is still movement in the sand when you look at some of the roots of the trees, which are standing free in the air while trying to cling to the loose sand.

Frederikshåb Plantage
Frederikshåb Plantage

Since 1802, when the state decided to build Frederikshåb Plantage, it has been a favorite destination. It was a long journey from the decision of a plantation was made until the area was planted. This was because the sand escape first had to be controlled with dikes and it took almost 100 years before the plantation was laid out.

Frederikshåb Plantage contains a strange natural phenomenon, called the Seven Years' Lakes. Sometimes you can find a large lake, at other times the water is gone and you can walk on the bottom of the lake. In the plantation you will find large inland dunes and a distinctive area with approx. 175 stones that are 5000 years old.
