    Jysk Automobilmuseum

    8.94 km

    The primary collection is composed of vehicles from before the Second World War, which thereby make up the main component of the museum and the fundament of the car historical story. However, also many fascinating and well-known postwar vehicles are exhibited at the museum.

    Back in time

    Take a tour back in time and visit Jysk Automobilmuseum, where primarily cars but also motorcycles and a wealth of accessories are exhibited which will interest the car- and motorcycle enthusiast. Furthermore, the exhibit offers fuel pumps, special tools, antique enameled signs and cut up technique. Among the last is a Wankel engine from a NSU Ro80, which is cut up partly and in that way shows how a rotation engine functions.

    Car experience

    At the museum, you can experience several rare cars and follow the development from craft to mass production in the car industry.

    Among the exhibited cars is a Vivinus from 1900, which was one of the first cars in Jutland. Furthermore, the exhibit offers a Hotchkiss, which for a number of years won the famous Monte Carlo races, along with a Maybach, often referred to as the German Rolls-Royce.  Cars such as Volkswagen, Saab and Volvo represent the more recent decades, a time where the car became common property, whereas Porsche, Maserati and Citroen SM represent the dream cars from that time.

    Also, among the motorcycles different interesting classics are exhibited, including the Danish built Nimbus from 1927, known for it’s stovepipes and the Triumph Tiger 110 that represent a motorcycle which for many during the 1950’s was a dream motorcycle.

    The Sky Mountain Himmelbjerget

    9.83 km

    Until the mid-19th century, Himmelbjerget was perceived as the highest point in Denmark. With its 147 meters above sea level, the legendary Himmelbjerg is certainly an impressive giant, and the steep hill down to the beautiful Julsø adds to the mountain romance.

    At the top of Himmelbjerget stands the Himmelbjerg Tower, which is 25 meters high and was erected as a memorial to King Frederik VII, who on June 5, 1849, gave the Danish people their free constitution.

    However, it is not only from the top of Himmelbjerget that you can enjoy a fantastic view. The forests south of the mountain hide several amazing viewpoints and good opportunities to get away from the lively visitor areas.

    Hiking and Walking

    The area around Himmelbjerget has a large and diverse trail system, where you can take shorter walks or combine several routes to create longer ones. You can get a good overview of the marked hiking trails in the Nature Agency's brochure on Himmelbjerget, Sletten, and Slåensø.

    Visit BestigBjerge.dk, embark on the 52 km long Himmelbjergrute around the lakes, or be inspired by the many other outdoor activities in the Lake Distirct here.

    The History of Himmelbjerget

    The name Himmelbjerget appears in writing as early as the beginning of the 18th century when a dramatic wolf hunt was held on the mountain. It is, therefore, an old local place name and not a romantic term introduced by the first tourists.

    Himmelbjerget has been a popular destination for generations, and already in the late 1830s, the poet priest St. St. Blicher made the mountain famous as the setting for his folk meetings. Nowadays, people still meet on the mountain to celebrate democracy and the constitution. Landscape painters spread knowledge of the place's beauties through their depictions of hills, forests, and views. Then came beer stalls, pavilions, hotels, ice cream kiosks, and souvenir shops.

    By studying the memorials on Himmelbjerget, you can also gain insight into how the Constitution of the Danish Realm came about – and even get the story in your ear as a podcast. For example, read and hear more about St. St. Blicher's memorial on Himmelbjerget, or read more about Kvinde Egen, which was planted in 1915.

    Nordic Mythology

    According to Norse mythology, Himmelbjerget is the highest mountain in the gods' world, known as Asgard. According to the myth, the god Heimdal lives on Himmelbjerget and guards Asgard at the end of the rainbow Bifrost, to prevent giants from sneaking in.

    Boat Trip with the paddle steamer Hjejlen

    Combine the experience with a trip on one of the Hjejle boats, as has been customary since 1861.

    Since 1861, the Hjejle Company has been sailing tourists to Himmelbjerget. Therefore, souvenir stalls have also existed on the site since the 1800s. At that time, it was an offshoot of the local area's wooden shoe production, where the wooden shoe boys carved small figures and "Himmelbjerg sticks," which were sold to tourists.

    Which mountain is the highest in Denmark?

    With modern measuring instruments, it has been determined that Møllehøj (170.86), Yding Skovhøj (170.77), and Ejer Bavnehøj (170.35) are the highest points in Denmark - and they are all located in the Søhøjlandet region.

    The Old Mill Museum at Gl. Rye

    11.29 km

    The mill at Gammel Rye was built in 1872 on a hill at the edge of the village. It was a working mill right up to the mid 1980s. Today the mill is exactly as it was when the miller left it, and when the mill is running, it is possible to see how grain was milled in the old days.

    The Middle Ages

    In the Middle Ages, the town was an important centre for trade and pilgrimage. The town prospered on several annual market days, and from the shrine of saint Severinus (St. Søren). In medieval times, the town had its own jurisdiction and outlaws were executed on the gibbet hill outside the town. A female skeleton from the gibbet hill is on display in the museum.

    Early glass production

    In the late 16th century a national glass production was established in Glarbo (glar means glass). It only lasted a few decades but produced renaissance glass of which some is on display in the exhibition.

    Clogs production (wooden shoes) and Himmelbjerg souvenirs

    A considerable clog industry developed in the Gl. Rye area in the 19th century. In those days, more than 186.000 pairs of clogs were sold per year. In every other house in the village, a clogmaker lived producing several pairs of clogs a day. In the museum's exhibition, you can see the tools of the clogmaker and how clogs were produced.

    The museum also houses a collection of the original wooden Himmelbjerg souvenirs. These local handicraft products from the turn of the 20th century are a by-product of the clog industry.

    German refugee camp

    In 1935, an airfield was established south of Gl. Rye. During the occupation of the Second World War, a German airbase was established at the airfield and after the war, it was rebuilt into a refugee camp for 12.000 German refugees, mainly from East Prussia. The museum houses an exhibition based on the life of the German refugees in the years 1945-48.

    Gudenå River

    14.55 km

    The Gudenå River is approximately 160 km long and the closest we in Denmark get to a "real" river. The river originates in Tinnet Krat northwest of Tørring and flows into Randers Fjord at Randers Bridge.

    At Randers, Randers Fjord is forming a river delta with a number of small islands. This delta is one of the few major inland deltas in Denmark, as it was formed at the mouth of Randers Fjord rather than directly into the sea.

    In the past, the Gudenå River was one of Jutland's main routes with settlements and later villages along the river. It was mainly peat and agricultural products and, with the establishment of the paper mill in Silkeborg in 1844, paper that was transported. Today, the Gudenå River attracts many to row on the river annually in either a canoe, kayak or rowing boat.

    Fishing

    For anglers - due to the power of its water volume and depth - the Gudenå River is an challenging angling water and has a very attractive salmon fishery. In Gudenåen you can catch brook trout, sea trout, salmon, eel, pike, sand species and skull.

    Hiking

    The trek path is a nature-tramp path that follows the Gudenåen from Silkeborg to Randers - a total of approx. 70 km. You can experience unique nature in a varied and sometimes difficult to access landscape.

    Canoeing

    A canoe trip on the Gudenå is both a scenic and challenging experience. The river is widely used during the summer by canoeists who go on a trip of one or more days duration. Sailing is allowed around the clock and throughout the year. The river is home to more than 80 plant species, of which 44 aquatic species.
