Travel Tips for Tønder
Moegeltoender - an amazing intact bunch of houses
Well, 5 kms far from Toender lies the wonder of South Jutland: a small village called Mogeltonder. Originally built to house the employees of the close Schackenborg Slot, it seems suspended in the eighteenth century. Nothing has changed since then - apart from the fact that the main and only street is open to motorized traffic. Its houses are straw roofed are adorned with beautiful red roses.
A lovely old commercial town.
Tonder has been a pleasant surprise for me. This small town - 12,000 inhabitants - is a really attractive spot on the German border. I can't really express what impressed me, maybe its peaceful atmosphere or the gorgeous architecture of its buildings, made up by the rich merchants of the town. I spent there a whole day and I don't regret it.

"Quiet place to break"
If you are in the southern part of Jutland, a day's visit to Tønder and Møgeltønder (see separate page) is well worth a visit. Tønder has much architecture from the 1600s and 1700s and is a good town for a walking tour.
Tønder is situated on the German border, and within the border areas you can sense a mix of German and Danish cultures. People on border towns on both sides are bilingual, as required in their education.
