The walking trail Drivvejen is a network of old historic roads and new footpaths through West and South Jutland. Drivvejen has been in use since ancient times. Over thousands of years, the cattle drovers, black pot sellers, shopkeepers, gypsies and other travellers trod the paths of Drivvejen. The road went through the heaths of West Jutland, down to the marshland and down towards the markets in Ribe and Germany. The original Drivvej went from Holstebro in the north to Husum in the south, and meandered the length and breadth of the current Highway 11. Some remains of the old road can still be found; the longest original section goes from Gredstedbro to Rejsby.
