Highest point in Denmark until 1847, when someone actually measured it to be lower than Ejer Baunehøj. Later Yding Skovhøj has been nominated as highest point. And later again Møllehøj as highest natural point. But view is fantastic from Himmelbjerget.

One of the highest points in Denmark. We prepared lunch box and enjoyed on a bench on hill with a view. On the top of Himmelbjerget you can go inside the tower and pay 10 dkk for entering the tower top. This time we got...More

Not it's fault it's just that one of the highest view points in Denmark isn't really that high. Some reasonable views of the lake below and just a brief (5 minute) stroll from the car park to the viewing point.

As most Danes already know the place, I (Dane myself) will write this in English. The name means Skymountain. In fact it is not really a mountain, but a hill. Nevertheless the view over lakes and forests is worth going for. There are two ways...More

We approached Himmerbjerget by boat from Silkeborg. This is probably the nicest and and most pictures boat trip in Denmark! Three small lakes, river and small passages along the way. The boat leaves every half an hour. But be aware that the last boat back...More

Worth the stop. The kids enjoyed, but it's s bit small. Very nice view from the top. Don't expect a rigorous climb to the top, it's a hill.

This attraction was included on our tour, only regret we didn't have a picnic lunch . Perfect spot for a picnic. Very laid back rural scenic overlook. Some food available, but a quick walk up to the tower is main event.
