Access to the local nature

To make the local landscape and its natural qualities more accessible for the public, Vejle Municipality has planned to establish fifteen new viewpoints and pathways in the unique local moraine landscape. Nørreskoven viewpoint will be the first step within this new initiative. The examples clearly reference the privately-operated Forest Tower near Næstved, also designed by EFFEKT.

Curated landscape experience

Nørreskoven Viewpoint consists of a boardwalk through the forest. The boardwalk has different features that create various experiences and spatial qualities, such as integrated benches for rest or an integrated trampoline for play and activity. The boardwalk leads to the main feature; a circular bridge on the edge of the forest, overlooking the Fjord of Vejle. By emphasising the natural outlooks with new architectural interventions, new attraction is created, allowing people to experience the different landscapes and the values they hold.
