Event descriptionIn conjunction with WOC2020, six spectator races will be organised in the heart of Denmark. We offer exciting orienteering, and hope that at the same time you will enjoy a fantastic experience whilst you are here. The competitions are being arranged so that you can enjoy your holiday, compete in beautiful surroundings and also follow the Elite. If you plan to spend the holiday together with other orienteers or your club, we offer a WOC campsite in Jelling. Three Sprint races will use the same areas as those the WOC2020 athletes will be challenged in. They will be supplemented by three forest races in the best and most demanding terrain in the region.
Terrain descriptionForest terrains: Frederikshåb is a typical mid-Jutland plantation consisting of conifers planted on a former heather and sand-drift area with inland dunes. Compared to many other plantations, it has a relatively small path network, and large areas have been badly affected by storms within the last decade. In general, the fallen trees have been removed, leaving large areas almost without paths, marked by grassy vegetation and with very varied runnability. Hylkedal is a valley formed by melting ice that along its sides is predominantly forest, mixed with larger areas used for grazing by animals. The valley's sides are very hilly. The forest is primarily deciduous, with at sometimes of year significant undergrowth. Apart from the valley itself, there are also areas that have previously been used for gravel-quarrying. These are now grown over and give a big variation in the contour picture with many small contour features in contrast to the more straightforward contour picture along the valley. Sprint terrains: Kolding and Vejle dates back around 800 years. The old town of Kolding is characterised by an asymmetric street pattern with town houses, shops, cafés and restaurants, back yards and narrow alleys. Whereas Vejle has both the old town centre, with pedestrian streets, back yards and narrow alleyways, and a more modern part with areas of housing, official buildings and schools. Fredericia was built almost 400 years ago as a military fort with high ramparts, today covered by grass and trees. The ramparts are hilly, in many places with very steep slopes whilst in other places more accessible and level. Within the fortifications the town has a symmetric street plan in squares, with complex yards behind the facades.

Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.WOC2020 will take place in the so-called Triangle Region, formed of the towns Vejle, Kolding and Fredericia and offering many cultural and countryside-based attractions to be enjoyed once the last control has been punched and the finish line crossed. For children and all who like to play, Legoland in Billund is situated very close to the event area. Legoland, with its various action-packed attractions based on the famous building bricks, attracts more than half a million visitors every year. The region can also boast of having as many as three locations listed as UNESCO world heritage sites: - The Jelling Stones tell the history of the creation of Denmark and its conversion to Christianity about 1,000 years ago. At a Visitor Centre on site, you can learn the story in the best possible way. - The ‘Vadehavet’ (Wadden Sea) tidal area on the Jutland west coast is covered by the tide twice a day, forming the basis for a unique wildlife experience with masses of birds, seals and oysters. It is also Denmark’s biggest National Park. - Finally there is the town Christiansfeld, founded at the end of the 18th century by the Moravian Church. It is well worth a visit for its many attractive historic buildings, which have been sympathetically restored in the first years of this century.
