Pælebjerg is one of the favorite excursion spots on Fanø. From the top, you have a wonderful view over the Fanø Klitplantage and the beach.

The surroundings of Pælebjerg also include a small lake - and during summer time there are plenty of water lilies in the lake. The Forest Playground and the marked Mountain-Bike trailis are close by, too. There are also quite a lot of marked hiking routes starting around Pælebjerg.

Pælebjerg is the highest mountain on Fanoe - 21 meters, and is of course part of "The Big 5"; the five highest mountains on the island.
