The view is great. Autumn nature showed a variety of colors and a carpet of leaves everywhere. Good for mountain bike! Went on a regular October Saturday, but the restaurant was close and we could not get any food. The souvenirs shop only handled cash...More

We were expecting a big hill to climb but the car park is actually almost at the top so it's just a short climb to the look out point and tower with the views. There's a good adventurous playground and football goals. A few but...More

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.

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.

Our tour brought us here in the late morning. The park was filled with young people - we figured it was an end of year school picnic? Fun to see so many laughing children of all ages. It is a nice park, with a gentle...More

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.
