Fort Østerlund - Bed & Breakfast

Very scenic and idyllic with the forest as a neighbor, you can spend the night in peace and quiet. Here, only the sounds of nature are heard, or perhaps a horse passing by. It's about. 1 km to the public road, 1.5 km to the nearest shopping and just 4 km to Silkeborg city center.

You can walk or cycle through the forest all the way to Silkeborg. There is direct access from Borgdal into the forest. On the way you can, for example, visit the Aqua Aquarium and Zoo.

It is obvious to use the forest, which borders the Silkeborg sea chain, for walking, cycling or running.

There is parking just outside the house.
