The Padborg (Haraldsdalvej) – Harrislee border crossing is one of the border crossings between Denmark and Germany and is reserved exclusively for pedestrians and cyclists. The small border crossing at Haraldsdalvej is close to the Padborg railway embankment, which protrudes about 500 meters into German territory. Right next to the Haraldsdalvej border crossing is the entrance to a small house with a south-facing terrace.
This border crossing is one of the Gendarmstien which a hiking trail going along the eastern part of the Denmark-Germany border. It is a part of the E6 trail
