At Langesø Castle, you'll find 2 mountain bike tracks, 2 technical areas and a downhill track for the experienced daredevils.
The northern track in the Langesø Estate is about 15 km and has lots of technically difficult passages for even the best riders. For the same reason, the north track is also called the black track, but here there are finely marked chicken runs for the less daring. Efforts are always made to keep the track attractive and a thoroughfare includes everything from technical climbs to berms, jumps, rock gardens and lots of flow. You won't be bored.
Along the trail, you can hone your mountain biking skills in a technical area, and you can bike close past the downhill track, which is only for experienced mountain bikers with the right equipment.
The southern track at Langesø Castle is about 10 km. and easier and more beginner friendly than the Northern track, but there are still plenty of challenges and many passages for even experienced riders. Difficult passages are clearly marked, and there are chicken runs for the less daring. Efforts are always made to keep the track attractive with new sections. A thoroughfare includes everything from technical climbs to berms, hops, rock gardens and lots of flow.
At the start of the Southern Track, you'll find a small training area where you can refine your technique.
Bonus info: The MTB tracks in Langesø have twice been voted by the Danish newspaper Politiken to be among Denmark's 10 best MTB tracks.
The forest is privately owned, and you must pay before using the tracks. You can buy a day pass for DKK 100.

Remember to bring cash. A day pass applies to both the North and South tracks.
You can buy a license for the whole year for DKK 750 from the Estate Office on Langesø or via firstname.lastname@example.org
When you've finished your bike ride, or you're taking a break between the 2 tracks, you can enjoy a delicious ice cream cone in Langesø Vaffelhus in summer, or grab a burger in Douglashuset, the restaurant overlooking the golf courses.
If you still have more in your legs, you can enjoy a great walk around the lake.

In December, there are Christmas markets during the weekends, and there are several other events such as an MTB school during the year. Stay tuned via Langesø Estate on Facebook
