It wasn’t Sønderborg’s beautiful nature that made the difference to married couple Stine Paulsen and Nicolaj Gottlieb. They already lived in the scenic Virum, with its easy access to lakes and forests. They love Sønderborg’s unique coastal landscape now that they live here, but that wasn’t what clinched the deal either. What made them sell their terraced house in Virum and move back to Sønderborg, where they both grew up, was the quality of life and the opportunity to commute and be close to family, not to mention the slower pace of life and the opportunity to be more present.
The options for active leisure in Sønderborg are almost endless.
Sønderborg is surrounded by nature, and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy it. Take the family to the ice rink in winter or the nature playground in summer, hike on Gendarmstien, or go birdwatching or kayaking. With more than 250 kilometres of coastline, forests, lakes and nature trails, the options are almost endless – both on land and at sea.
