Chris, any ideas why Danish put "km" on their speed signs? UK is pretty far from Denmark, so it is not easy to confuse measuring systems in that area.

^ Austrians also do that, and they are nowhere near UK.

That route #181 looks beautiful.

Southern Jutland has ferry connections to the UK and get's British drivers/cars in large numbers.. - on Zealand I don't remember having seen such...

As Chriszwolle wrote they have repaved the worn tracks in the road...

Don't ask me why they don't just redo or overpave the entire road - that's just how they do in places with a lot of truck traffic... I guess it's faster and cheaper..

Thinking about it it might have something to do with noise reduction - road noise have been a big issue many places and they have gone to great lenghts to make "low noise" asphalt - maybe that's why - it's certainly cheaper than putting up noise barriers - although it still doesn't make sense why they don't do it properly to begin with.. maybe it doesn't pass water trough as good, so they keep the old on unused areas to do that

Great trip, thank you for the post!! I also love to take my weekends to make a ride. I'd like to have this easyness to take the car on a weekend and travel for 3 countries, here in one weekend, leaving the state is already too much!

^ Be happy you don't have to show your documents every 200 km or so, like in Europe. Luckily the Schengen Area has grown quite much (which is useful also in this particular trip).

Sekundærrute 513 Lemvig - Struer

A rather short journey from route 181 west of Lemvig, through Lemvig to route 11 near Struer. A quite surprising area, with sometimes steep hills and gradients on the road.

Primærrute 11 Struer - Ydby

Another part of main route 11, now through the lakes and fjords of northern Denmark. We only take route 11 for 30 kilometers. We cross the Oddesund bridge, where dozens of people were fishing from. Also, i take a short break at a parking lot right next to the water.

Sekundærrute 527 Ydby - Vestervig

A short journey from Ydby to Vestervig via route 527, which brings us back to the route 181 i've been following for a while. The road is hilly and curvy.

Picasa webalbum, 18 pics

Sekundærrute 181 Vestervig - Hanstholm

We approach the northernmost point of my journey. This trip takes us on the route 181 again, which winds through dunes and forests. This area is called "Thy", and is on the list to be approved as a national park. On the pics you can see why. I made a little stop to climb an high dune. There was sea fog near the coastline, but i didn't have any problems from it on the road. Temperature could drop 10 degrees within a few hundred meters. At last, i end in Hanstholm, a port town where the ferries to Norway, Faeroer and Iceland depart. We end the serie with some pics of the port of Hanstholm from above.

This type of repaving is quite common in Estonia, especially in the cities, because it's cheap , but I would not have expected this kind of repaving in Denmark.

Primærrute 29 Hanstholm - Aars

We head southeast, from Hanstholm to Primærrute 11, which runs concurrent with the Primærrute 29 to Fjerritslev. We end just south of Aars, at the intersection with Primærrute 13. The entire route can be described as scenic, since we hit some lakes, forests, and the entire area is quite hilly.

Crazy road trip this weekend...

Stockholm to Hamburg and back on Sat-Sun.

2,800 km round trip I think.

Make sure to make some pics, especially from the E4! I hope the weather stays okay, it's been clear skies for the last 2 weeks, however, it's a bit more unstable now in the Netherlands.
