Himmelbjerget ("The Sky Mountain" or "The Mountain of Heaven") is a hill located between Ry and Silkeborg, Denmark in the area known as Søhøjlandet.A visit to Himmelbjerget represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Silkeborg trip itinerary planning website to plot your vacation.
With a height of 147 m (482 ft), Himmelbjerget is one of the highest natural points in the Danish landscape. The hill and surrounding area has been a centre for various gatherings and celebrations for more than 200 years and in 1875, a red brick tower was erected at the top.
It's told to be the highest spot in Denmark. It's easy to reach by car, there are also several parking spots. The closest (P1) is so close that you will only need few minutes up to the highest point! If you only want to enjoy the view a parking ticket for one hour will be enough, if you want to go hiking you should take one for longer. The view is amazing! I can highly recommend coming here.
The highest peak of the world's flattest country! Very nice area all around it, ideal for a family outing.
