  • A light walk to the top. The hill like height may not be impressive but the view to the lake is great. Plenty of parking space at the destination.  more »
  • in a flat country this is a must see attraction - buy an ice cream and relax with the great views from the top  more »
  • 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.
