If you are an outdoor person with an inclination towards wonderful outdoor activities, then Rebild has it all, as the landscape, comprising the forest Rold Forest, the hills of Rebild Bakker and their environs, is nothing less than heavenly lush green scenery. Here, in the heart of the region of Himmerland, the skies are high and there is room for diversity – so if you prefer pensive hiking to the notes of birdsong; a mountain-bike ride at tearing speeds up and down hills; or, if you are more inclined towards canoeing on the calm waters of the stream, then Rebild can provide. Here, we’re open all year round – for nature never takes a day off, never goes holidaying. On the contrary, it is prepared to receive you whenever it suits you. Regardless of season, Rebild can always deliver – be that exhilarating nature experiences or active exertion.
Without a doubt, the primary attractions of the Rebild area are the hills and forest, namely Rebild Bakker and Rold Forest, also belonging among Denmark's primary nature attractions. We urge you to exploit this spot. For instance, you could take a trip to the forest’s nature playground, Røverknolden, which is a superb spot for a family outing. The forest also provides an excellent backdrop for biking – for bringing your hamper as well as for downhill action on mountain bike. Actually the Danish health and exercise site ‘vores puls’ (our pulse rate) has nominated Rold Forest as Denmark’s 2nd best mtb route, vorespuls.dk.
The area has a rich and thriving cultural life; and it is particularly renowned for the Rebild Celebrations. On every 4th of July since 1912, the area has been the venue for the celebration of the United States’ Independence Day. This event is believed to be the greatest independence-day celebration outside the US.
Opera in Rebild is an annually recurring event, certainly also worth a visit. Another regularly recurring occasion is the 12-hour MTB race in Rold where the entire family can participate; whereas the Rold24Race is definitely for hardcore mountain bikers.
If you are hiking or just taking a leisurely stroll in Rold Forest, and you pass the fabulous lake, Store Økssø, we recommend that you pay the beautiful restaurant Mosskov Pavillion a visit. Here the menu certainly matches the idyllic setting. Rebild Bakker boasts another fine restaurant, namely Rold Storkro, also profiting from the wonderful nature. Here, you can enjoy fine dining and complete the experience with a walk to Troldeskoven (the wood of trolls), Krybskytten Lars Kjærs Hus (the poacher's house) and to the well-known spring, Ravnkilde, before you take your evening coffee. You should also pay a visit to Top Karen's house, “Tophuset”, where plain food (especially a highly popular omelette) is served in a historical setting. If you are in the vicinity of Nørager, do not miss out on the restaurant, Nørlunds Gæstebud, also listed among North Jutland’s finest restaurants.
Regardless whether you chose between the inns and hotels or prefer camp site or hostel, you will be close to nature. Rebild is, as a matter of fact, home to Denmark’s only Sports hotel, Comwell Sport Rebild Bakker. Here, you can combine beautiful scenery with a comfortable bed, wonderful food and, above all, active exercise. Give it a try and be overwhelmed by the multitude of activities to be found near the hotel.
