Kongens Forhøjning

Take a walk in the past

In Hjelm Forest, there is a small elevation by Hessel Stream known as the " Kings Rise".

It said that King Valdemar Sejr sailed to this place after his crusade in Estonia in 1219, on his way to Urnehoved Moot, where the assembled population saw the flag Dannebrog for the first time.
