Summeractivities for children at Himmelbjerget 2019

Himmelhop (Sky Jump) is a children's festival that started over 10 years ago with activities for children every Tuesday in July. Today, it has evolved into covering almost every day during the schools' summer break with different activities such as wood carving workshops, circus workshops, hat theatre, fun and games, climbing, archery, yoga and much more (see the program below). Himmelhop is now no longer just for kids. On the four Thursdays of July, we welcome Max and his band where they will have an open-air sing-along. Everybody can sing along.

Let yourself be inspired by the diverse program for 2019.

Treasure hunt - every day during summer.

At the Himmelbjerg, you will find different kinds of treasure hunts. One of them will take you around to the historic nooks and crannies by map and quiz at a level where everybody can play along. The other treasure hunt, with the help of GPS/smartphone and a bundle of aids, will take you on an adventure and a tale about the robbery of the king's treasures that are hidden in the woods around Himmelbjerget. Children as young as three years old can take part and there are prizes for everyone. The starting line is at either the tourist information or Ørneboden. Price: 20-25 DKK.

The activities are arranged by VisitSkanderborg with support from Kultursamvirket Skanderborg• Skanderborg Kommune  Hjejleselskabet •Hotel Julsø • Hotel Himmelbjerget • Ørneboden • Holmens Camping • Knudhule Badehotel • Lyngdal Hotel og Restaurant  Tårnkomiteen • Kvickly Ry
