Geocache Description:

Gendarmstien fra Padborg til Høruphav hører til blandt de smukkeste vandreruter i Danmark.

Gendarmstien har navn efter de gamle grænsegendarmer, der i tiden fra Genforeningen i 1920 og frem til 1958 bevogtede landegrænsen og kontrollerede skibsfarten langs kysten. Patruljeringen foregik til fods, og hver enkelt gendarm havde et bestemt stykke af grænsen at passe.

Ved Munkemølle lå indtil en brand i 1945 den middelalderlige Munkemølle, som har været kornmølle under Ryd Kloster, nu Glücksborg. Cisterciensermunkene, der selv byggede møllen, sejlede korn over fjorden hertil.

Denne cache indeholder logbog/blyant, FFC og forskellige bytteting. Tag familien med og nyd naturen langs Flensborg Fjord - men husk gummistøvler...


The Gendarme Path from Padborg to Høruphav is one of the most beautiful hiking routes in Denmark.

The Gendarme Path got its name from the old border gendarmes that guarded the national border and controlled the maritime traffic after the reunion in 1920 and until 1958. The patrolling was done on foot, and each gendarme had a certain piece of the border to look after.

By Munkemølle was until a fire in 1945 the middleaged Munkemølle, which was a grain mill under Ryd Kloster (monastery), now Glücksburg. The munks, that built the mill themselves, brought grain across the fjord to this place.

This cache contains logbook/pencil, FFC and various trade items. Bring your family and enjoy the nature by Flensburg Fjord - but remember rubber boots...
