    Ejer Bavnehøj Møllehøj Denmarks Highest Point

    8.19 km

    From the top of Ejer Bavnehøj is a magnificent view over a unique moraine landscape developed in the latter part of third ice age. Here the ice borderline of the east of Jutland is very clear. The ice flowed around the high plateau of Ejer. In bright weather it's possible to see the island of Samsø, and even the bridge over Lillebælt 50 kilometres away.

    The highest point in Denmark

    Until 1847 people thought that Himmelbjerget ("Sky Mountain") was the highest point in Denmark, but it's only 147 metres above sea. At that time Ejer Baunehøj was declared to be higher, and in 1874 it was measured to be 170.95 metres above sea level. Nevertheless Yding Skovhøj, only 3 kilometres away, was declared to be even higher, due to several new measurements in the middle of the 1900's. This was a great disappointment for people involved in Ejer Baunehøj.

    The Danish authorities finally decided in 1953 that a burial mound on Yding Skovhøj from the bronze age didn't count. That reduced Yding Skovhøj to 170.89 metres, and means that Ejer Baunehøj wins this height competition by only 6 centimetres!In 2002 the heights were adjusted due to the new general measure method DVR90. Ejer Baunehøj has sunk 6 centimetres to now 170.89 metres, but the same applies to Yding Skovhøj measured at 170.83 metres.

    Nevertheless, the battle of heights took a dramatic turn in February 2005. A panel of experts selected as referees in the battle proclaimed their winner. The panel, made up of a geography professor, an archaeologist, and an office head at Denmark’s National Geographical Survey, determined that Denmark’s highest point, measuring in at a height of 170.86 metres is Møllehøj (Mill Top).

    The winner came in exactly nine centimetres higher than the second highest point, Rodebuske in Yding Skov, and 51 centimetres higher than the third highest, Ejer Bavnehøj. But Møllehøj is located only 200 metres west of Ejer Bavnehøj on an ordinary field belonging to a farmer. There is only a minor slope between the two tops. According to the international principle of primary factors they are defined as one complete top.

    Tales in Focus

    We all love a good story. Would you like to be the main character of that story? As you make your way through this forest you can take part in the story by scanning QR-codes or by activating sensors with light and sound. Maybe the fairies are to blame. It is told that:

    ”One day at the dawn of time, God threw all the evil angels out of Heaven and down to Earth. The angels had sinned against God, but they could not all make it to Hell. They, therefore, fell down to earth in different places. Some fell onto farms and became farm dwellers – in other words nisse. Some fell on mounds and hills, and became mountain folk, gnomes or trolls. Those who fell in the sea became sea people. And finally, those who fell into bogs, upon meadows and in woods became elves or fairies”. BASED UPON THE LEGEND FROM KVÆRNDRUP, EVALD TANG KRISTENSEN DANISH LEGENDS, VOLUME 1, S. 3, 1.1

    Yding Skovhøj – Denmark’s highest point

    9.11 km

    Climb “mountains” in the Danish Lakelands

    The area called Ejer Mountains is characterized by idyllic villages dotted between forests and farmland, connected by narrow, winding roads in undulating countryside. The area is a good place for a bicycle ride, and you are guaranteed a sweaty brow.

    Up here in the thin air, you will pass Denmark’s highest points. The top of Yding Skovhøj is found at an altitude of 172,54 metres above sea level. When you are on your bike the hill rises 85 metres from the bottom to the top, but if you want to reach the summit, you will have to get off the iron horse and enter Yding Forest. From here you go for a hefty but short climb to the summit where Denmark’s highest point awaits.

     

    Denmark’s highest point?

    It has been widely discussed over the centuries. What is actually Denmark's highest point? Over time, several different points have held the title but, as the means of measurement have become more precise, it is now possible to measure heights down to a one-centimetre accuracy. So, today there should be no doubt, right?

    In fact, discussions are still ongoing as to which hilltop should hold the honourable title. There are several hilltops in the uplands north of Horsens the height of which vary by only a few centimetres.

    There are three Bronze Age burial mounds at the top of Yding Skovhøj. The top of the centre one measures 172.54 metres above sea level. This is more than 1 metre higher than Denmark’s second-highest point. Critics argue, however, that the Bronze Age burial mounds are man-made and, therefore, not natural. According to this approach, they should not be included in the measurement.

    In that case, Yding Skovhøj is a mere 9 centimetres short of the title of the highest point of our kingdom. In other words, whether Yding Skovhøj deserves the honourable title is a subjective assessment.

    What do you think?

     

    Experiences nearby

    Yding Skovhøj is located in the southern outskirts of the Danish Lakelands, very close to the river Gudenå.

    Not far from here is the Sugar Loaf (Sukkertoppen). The Sugar Loaf is a hill that - because of its height of a mere 105 metres - is dwarfed by Yding Skovhøj. However, the views are magnificent and among the absolute best in Denmark. From the top you have views of the most beautiful part of the Gudenå area which is the area around Mossø. At the base of the Sugar Loaf, you find the idyllic Klostermølle which, besides the historic buildings – including Denmark's longest wooden building, has a beautiful view at the end of Mossø.

    And you are only about five kilometres from the Uncovered Bridge (Den Genfundne Bro) – a culturehistoric gem in beautiful nature, and the biggest attraction in the area.

    The Uncovered Bridge (Den Genfundne Bro)

    16 km

    Experience the beautiful engineering of 1899 at The Uncovered Bridge

    The Uncovered Bridge is a cultural-historical gem and a piece of revived Danish history that lay hidden inside a dam for 85 years. In 2014, the bridge was uncovered and restored to its former glory and, today, the bridge is a magnificent sight and an even better experience to walk across.

    With good parking opportunities near the bridge that crosses the rushing Gudenåen, The Uncovered Bridge is an obvious destination for a picnic that can be enjoyed at tables and benches by the bridge.

    Today, the bridge is a symbol of beautiful, industrial engineering, after it was thoroughly restored in 2014. When it was built, the red steel lattice bridge was the tallest of its kind in the Nordic region and, today,  railings and planks to walk on have been added to allow visitors to enjoy the view of Denmark's only “river”, Gudenåen.

     

    Facts about The Uncovered Bridge

    - 13.4 metres high
    - 50 metres long
    - Built in 1899
    - Covered up in 1929
    - Uncovered in 2014

     

    How to find The Uncovered Bridge

    The Uncovered Bridge is located 20 kilometres north of Horsens between the villages Vestbirk, Træden and Gammelstrup. About 300 metres from the bridge, there is a large parking lot at Vestbirkvej 2A, Brædstrup. From here, a path leads to the bridge.

    If you are taking a canoe trip on Gudenåen, The Uncovered Bridge is an obvious place for a rest and enjoying the magnificent nature in the area. There is a natural place to land the canoe at Vestbirk Hydropower Plant and it is not far from there to The Uncovered Bridge.

    A ford has been established for visitors on horseback immediately east of the bridge.

     

    Ride your bicycle to The Uncovered Bridge

    The Uncovered Bridge is part of the beautiful, old Bryrup railway line which has now been turned into the Horsens-Silkeborg Nature Trail. The 61-kilometre route is mostly paved and without motorised traffic and is, thus, perfect for day trips on your bicycle. The picturesque trip through the hilly Bakkelandet and Søhøjlandet can be divided into two days as there are several possibilities of overnight accommodation along the way. The route is also popular with hikers and as a riding trail.

    The Himmelbjerg Tower

    17.36 km

    Himmelbjerg Tower, which is 25 m high, was erected as a memorial to King Frederik VII, who on June 5, 1849 gave the Danish people their free constitution.

    The tower, designed by architect L.P. Fenger, bears a frieze with the inscription: "In memory of the King - Frederik d. 7 - the friend of the Danish people - giver of the constitution".

    Construction work began in 1874 and on June 5, 1875 the tower was "unveiled". However, a part of the decoration was missing, namely the portrait of the king and the memorial wreaths, executed by sculptor Ring. These decorations were unveiled at a constitutional festival in 1891. Since then, nothing has changed in the appearance of the tower.

    Price: 10 DKK per person. Tickets can be purchased at the tower. The admission fee for Himmelbjerg Tower is used for the maintenance of the area.

    See here for the tower's opening hours.

    You can choose to sail with the excursion boats from the ports in Ry or Silkeborg, or you can hike the 7 km from Ry through the beautiful forest to the foot of the Sky Mountain Himmelbjerget.

    Lorentzen’s incredible escape tunnel

    Experience the impressive, 18-metre-long tunnel by escapee Carl August Lorentzen that led from his cell to freedom. Digging such a tunnel required an enormous amount of hard work, dedication and perseverance. The inspiring story of Lorentzen was then on everyone's lips and it taught the Danish people that "Where there is a will, there is also a way".

     

    The dark dungeons

    The underworld - this is what the prison museum calls its most recent exhibition which can be viewed in the old dungeons. The dark cellar was once used for punishing, executing and disciplining the inmates and this is your chance to see the gloomier side of the prison with its painful tools for punishment.

     

    The many exciting stories

    Learn about Horsens State Penitentiary's role during World War II. And get to know Werner Best - the leader of the German Armed Forces who was sentenced to death after the war and served time in Horsens.

    See where and how inmates sentenced to death were executed in the early days of the prison in the 19th century. And how did you go about things when inmates got married and wanted romance?

    The Prison Museum is filled with captivating tales. But do not worry, the prison no longer holds inmates. So, unlike the great escapee Carl Lorentzen who always dreamt of freedom and thus dug his way out of the Horsens State Penitentiary, you are free to leave again.
