Where to see the race

The Tour de France contestants will ride from Aabenraa into the area of Sonderborg from Felsted and down towards Graasten. 4-6 hours beforehand, the entire route through Sonderborg will be closed off for the cyclists. As a spectator, you are allowed to stand along the entire route and in the finish line area except of course on the road, where the contestants will go as fast as 60 km per hour. 

Bring all you cheering gear –
t-shirts, cheer hats, homemade banners, anything yellow or whatever you like. 


We are currently working on having three hotspots along the route – in Graasten, at Dybbøl Heights and at Borgmester Andersens Vej. The three hotspots will be similarly constructed with big screens, food stands, toilets and entertainment during the day. It’s all about the race!

Enjoy the day with other fans as the cyclicts pass each hotspot.

Finish line area

It is of course possible to stand in the finish line area. More and more fans wearing yellow will gather during the day and the vibe will be amazing. A big screen will also be placed in the area.

After the race it is possible to view the riders in front of their team busses once the race is finished in the finish line area. Afterwards, the riders will depart to the airport for France, while you can continue the party in downtown Sonderborg.

A program of 100 days

The countdown for the Tour de France is celebrated with events in Sonderborg and the other Tour-cities from the 23rd of March 2022. The program of 100 days will be extensive and broad with something for everyone.

The program will be shown here on sonderborg.dk in the beginning of 2022.

Traffic information

Sønderborg harbor will be closed on Sunday the 3rd of July

When the Tour de France arrives in Sønderborg on the 3rd of July 2022, the cycling race will also have an impact on yachtsmen and other ships’ ability to dock in Sønderborg Harbor. At the same time, no ships will be able to pass King Christian X’s Bridge on July 3, as the bridge will not open on race day.

Even though the Tour de France takes place on land, the bicycle race also has an impact on guests to the Port of Sønderborg. The port will be closed for the arrival of ships on Sunday the 3rd of July 2022 from 10 am to 8 pm, and during that time it is not possible to sail in and out of Sønderborg Harbor.

The port area will be closed for entry from both the south and the north. This means that no ships can enter the harbor area from Sønderborg Castle to King Christian X’s Bridge, and the same will be the case on the north side of the bridge. Here it will be closed from the bridge to the area by Soya Concept. In both places, patrol ships will provide the barrier.

It will also not be possible for ships to sail through King Christian X’s Bridge. In order to get the safety plan approved, it is necessary that the bridge is closed throughout July 3rd.

During the weekend around the Tour de France on July 3, 2022, yachtsmen can dock off Sdr. Havnegade in Sønderborg, but there must be a maximum of four boats next to each other, and this is done on a first-come, first-served basis. In the area south of King Christian X’s Bridge, spaces have also been reserved for a few other ships.

In the area north of King Christian X’s Bridge, places have been reserved for larger ships that can dock along Nr. Havnegade – in front of Multikulturhuset and Hotel Alsik.

Yachtsmen can search for other municipal ports in the area to find seats. These are 12 guest berths at “Verdens Ende” in Sønderborg as well as berths in Augustenborg and Gråsten harbors.
