Mollehoj

Møllehøj is the highest natural point in Denmark at 170.86 m. It is in the Ejerbjerge hills in Skanderborg municipality, very close to Ejer Bavnehøj. The summit is marked with a millstone, a remnant of Ejer mill which was situated on the hill from 1838 to 1917. The mill had 8 sides and had an onion-shaped roof.

New measurements made in February 2005 showed that Møllehøj was higher than either Yding Skovhøj (172.66 m including a Bronze Age burial mound on its summit, 170.77 m without) in Horsens municipality or Ejer Bavnehøj which had both been thought higher. These 2 highpoints' natural heights are however respectively 9 and 51 cm lower than Møllehøj. It was officially recognised as Denmark's highest point in 2005

    I went up with a friend Mollehoj as part of my project to climb the highest point of every European country, which I completed in July 2013. Mollehoj is only a hill close to villages and well...
