Overview
More
Skamlingsbanken, is the highest point in South Jutland with its placement 113 metres above sea level. Skamlingsbanken is located in beautiful surroundings with magnificent views of the whole region between Kolding and Christiansfeld. There are also views to the Little Belt and Funen and a long way into Jutland to the west. It’s a grand landscape with undulating fields, beech forests and hedgerows. Skamlingsbanken is also known for the gatherings that took place in support of the Danish cause in South Jutland in the years 1843-59. On Højskamlingen, is a 16-metre-high monument made of 25 granite blocks commemorating the defenders of the Danish cause in Schleswig. The monument was erected in 1863, blown up by the Prussians in 1864 and erected again in 1866. This reconstruction was made possible because people in the area had kept the stones. Near the monument are six other monuments and a platform of large stones. The platform is surrounded by five groups of trees that symbolise the inseparability of the five Nordic countries. These trees are: Beech (Denmark), birch (Sweden), spruce (Norway), juniper (Finland) and rowan (Iceland). After the liberation of Denmark in 1945, a monument was erected in honor of the fallen from the South Jutlandic resistance movement. The hill is a popular destination for excursions and offers a car park, a small exhibition about the history of Skamlingsbanken and a restaurant.

This is worth a detour if you are in the area. A lovely view to the coastline and the rolling farmlands. A small information centre on site tells the history of this place.
