    The Sky Mountain Himmelbjerget

    10.45 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, 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

    10.65 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.

    The lake, Slåensø

    13.81 km

    The lake is located in extremely hilly terrain. It is a popular destination with Kongestolen (the king’s seat) (82 m high) immediately south of Lake Slåensø, which offers wonderful views to the north. Closeby is Denmark’s tallest tree, a Douglas fir which is more than 50 m high. There is a good rambling trail all the way around the lake.

    Yding Skovhøj – Denmark’s highest point

    14.98 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.

    Ejer Bavnehøj Møllehøj Denmarks Highest Point

    16.36 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.

    Almindsø - A paradise for water lovers in the Lake District

    18.52 km

    Almindsø is a very popular place to visit. The lake is surrounded by cozy forests and is also located close to the city of Silkeborg. Almindsø is characterized by its exciting flora and fauna, including 20 species of underwater plants and 450 species of aquatic animals.

    On the south side of the lake, there are high cliffs with ochre-containing springs as well as the two tributaries Skade Bæk and Odder Bæk. However, most of the water supply comes from the connection to the groundwater in the bottom of the lake.

    Fantastic lake baths in the middle of the forest

    In addition to the Østre Søbad and Vestre Søbad, there are also several smaller bathing spots in Almindsø where you can jump into the water - for example, at the beach at Aggerholm, which was built by German soldiers stationed at the nearby German military headquarters in Silkeborg Bad during World War II.

    Here, there is also the opportunity to buy access to a sauna, use changing rooms and toilet facilities, and jump into the water from the large, round bathing bridges. These are the latest additions to Almindsø, which make the lake even more worth seeing than it already was.

    With a maximum depth of 20 meters, Almindsø is one of the deepest lakes in the Gudenå system, and there are approximately 4 kilometers around the lake, which invite you to a very beautiful walk, including the viewpoint Kroghs Bænk.

    The Uncovered Bridge (Den Genfundne Bro)

    19.5 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.

    ”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
