Red deer

The red deer is the largest terrestrial mammal in Denmark. Many tourists visit the plantation and heathland area to see the wild red deer. The best place to see the red deer is on the side of the road between Børsmose and Grærup. Here you will see the red deer grazing on the meadows around Grærup Langsø.

In the oestrus period (September) you can hear the stags’ amazing roars. If you stand close by Grærup Langsø in the twilight, you will as dusk falls have a very intense experience, when the stags are roaring at each other.
