Haderslev lies in the middle of a beautiful subglacial stream trench with Haderslev cathedral situated on a hill in the centre of town. The town's history can be dated back 800 years. The town has a large local archaeological museum. The town is surrounded by water, ideal for canoeing or a lovely boat trip to the Årøsund and the Little Belt island of Årø with the fjord boat Helene. Ideal conditions for studies of the surrounding nature and the environmental protection in the area. Danhostel Haderslev is beautifully located down by the Haderslev Pond, only 5 min. from the town centre, yet in the middle of unspoilt nature.
