Sønderborg

Sønderborg is located in the southernmost part of Denmark, just a few kilometres from the German border. The municipality’s territory is unique in that it extends over the island of Als and the Jutland peninsula. The town’s importance as a port has shaped its development, as has its subsequent development as a university town. The colourful houses and murals that brighten up the streets also attract tourists. Denmark’s former world champion, Mads Pedersen, triumphed here on the second stage of the last Tour of Denmark.

Vejle

On its third day in Denmark, the Tour will be in the continental part of the country, formed by the Jutland peninsula. The town of Vejle is named after the fjord that dominates it and has long been known for its textile industry, which has earned it the nickname of “the Manchester of Denmark”. But sports fans are much more likely to know it for Vejle BK, five-time winners of the Danish league and the club that produced the 1977 Ballon d’Or winner Allan Simonsen. His attachment to the club led him to finishing his career with the team after spells with Mönchengladbach and Barcelona.
