A lovely place to visit for amazing views! You've got to feel for the people who built the tower back around the mid 19th century, believing this place was Denmark's highest point, only to discover 2 years later that it wasn't. Still it makes a...More

We enjoyed the view of the lakes from Himmelbjerg but most of all we loved the woodland walk along the shore of Julsø to Bøgebjerg and back to hotel Himmelbjerget.

Came with Hungarian colleagues a late night just before sunset. We enjoyed the spectacular views over lakes, forrest and a hilly landscape. I visited many times and I always enjoy at all seasons during the year. During daytime you can visit a restaurant or buy...More

Wonderful area and view. Bri g your picnic and consider arriving by boat. Families with small children should think whether they are able to walk up from the boats with their equipment or if it is better to drive up. Plenty of play grounds and...More

Unfortunately the tower was closed when I visited but you still have an incredible view over the area from the foot of the tower. The area is surrounded by beautiful little paths which are worth checking out.

Beautiful view over lakes and hills. Nice walk from the tower and down to the lake, where you find a good restaurant /ice cream shop.

An easy walk (free) to the tower with a route for those less mobile too. Worth 10 DKK to climb to the top too for panoramic views over the lakes and hills. Friendly little souvenir shop on site. Nearby car park.

Historical Danish monument celebrating the birth of the democracy in Denmark. Also, a beautiful sight from one of the highest points in Denmark. Take the boat from silkeborg or Ry and have the exercise of walking from the landing to the top.

Well, yes, it is really just a very pleasant hill in a rather flat country – but it is genuinely a beautiful park area with good views around the surrounding lakes and forests. We walked from Ry to the top (just over an hour) through...More
