If you're travelling south towards the town from Harreby, or driving along the Ribe-Gram street that leads south from the town, its worth parking your car at the intersection called  'Fyrreskoven' and heading off down the country lane to the heritage listed burial ground, where you'll find the one of the largest Ice Age gravesites in Denmark.


Every Friday, join the town's marching band for their parade through the city to the cathedral. The parade meets at 11:45 A.M. at Haderslev's military barracks and ends around midday at the cathedral.
