Ejer baunehøj, Skanderborg




Ejer baunehøj, Skanderborg

It is probably not the most secret place, but it is quite cozy and there arent many visitors.

It is one of the highest places in Denmark with 170.35 meters. The trip to the right of Ejer Bavnehøj goes to Møllehøj 170.86 meters, which is the highest place we have in flat Denmark.

Ejer Baunehøj is one of the first protection projects in Denmark. A small area was protected in 1917 to preserve the good views and to create access to visitors.

In 1920, a reunification stone was put on the spot. It is the red granite stone that stands in a circle of wooden benches on the left side of the tower, right where the parking lot ends.

There are many reunification stones in Denmark, between 1920 and 1938 561 stones were put around the country.

The reunification stone marks the fact that southern Denmark again became Danish. In 1864 there was a war with Germany, which Denmark lost big. They had to renounce the entire southern part of Jutland to Germany.

After World War I, which Germany lost, Germany was occupied and the people in the areas Germany had previously occupied themselves was given the choice to vote on which country they would belong to. The voters in southern Jutland went to Denmark and in 1920 they were reunited with Denmark.

It was a huge thing to get so much land back so it was truly celebrated. In 1924, the tower was built as a major landmark for the reunification. The funds for the construction were made with voluntary contributions from the entire population.

In 2006, the entire area around the tower was purchased by the state and the conservation.

In 2019, benches and stairs were established, where there was previously a restaurant.

There is a quite a newer grill bar, where you can buy coffee etc.
