Himmelbjerget is where we meet

Listen to good stories about a proud democracy, swarming souvenir shops, lots of international visitors, happy children, ice cream and music.

Sky Mountain rise 147 metres above the landscape and is one of Denmark’s finest and most traditional places for outings. And this has been the case ever since the old steamer Hjejlen made its first call at the foot of the mountain for the very first time.

Climb the proud mountain slope from the lakeside and fill up your senses, hunger and thirst when you’ve reached the top. Relax on the big lawn and look up into the Sky Mountain sky. Join in the fun at the annual children’s festival every Tuesday in July.

Mountain climbing in Denmark

Mountain climbing - also in Denmark

Take the trip up into the higher stratum of air – all 20 members of Mountain Climbing Denmark are situated more than 100 meters above sea level. So it is not for everyone – especially not for those who are afraid of heights!

But after all - maybe they are!
