I visited this point as part of the IBRG DEDK21 expedition. Bejerskro is a small rural border crossing between Denmark and Germany. A bridge crosses the Gammelå, a small river that marks the border and flows east to west at this point. There are regional signs in both Denmark and Germany as well as border marker #182. Surveillance cameras provide remote viewing. No border guards required. Up to 2011 there was a small building on the Danish side for border control, long since demolished.

Extract from the 1920 Border Treaty

The border map (top left) shows a much more crooked water course, unlike the artificial river today.

The Border

Looking east – note the anti wild boar fence
Looking west – border marker visible on German side

Border marker #182

There were 2 markers which is normal for a river, one on either side.

BM #182 on the German side – note the wild animal camera.
On the Danish side the wild boar fence prevented access to BM #182 (normal clearing of vegetation could not occur)

Along with all other crossings this one was closed during the pandemic. All photos: Steen Schelde with thanks.
