Firehøje and Kong Rans Høj (barrows)

Firehøje and Kong Rans Høj, © VisitVejle

The 7.5 acre large heath area situated north of Randbøl Church was
named after the four bronze-age grave mounds. From the top of the
four blue berry-covered hills, the view of numerous other hills is magnificent.   

Kong Rans Høj, the mound of King Ran, is found at the cemetery of Randbøl Church.  According to the legend, a battle was fought between two local kings in Gødding Forest.  King Ran and King Amled. King Ran and many of his men were killed. King Ran was buried in the great mound at Randbøl Cemetery and the king’s men are buried in the mounds of Firehøjene.
