Bredhøj - dansehøj
Take a walk in the past
The Bredhøj mound is a large flat "dance hill" situated close to the road Nautrupvej. Bredhøj belongs to a rare group of circular mounds that are completely level on the top. Mounds with this type of shape are mainly found in Jutland and date back to the Bronze Age.
The Bredhøj mound measures approx. 40 m in diameter but is only 1½ m above the surrounding terrain.
The large flat mounds are also called "dance hills". One theory is that on these mounds cult scenes were played out, as it is known from the fascinating picture-world of Bronze age rock engravings.
