The three Bronze Age mounds Trehøje

The three Bronze Age mounds of Trehøje, 127 metres above sea level, offer a panorama view from Aarhus to Ebeltoft, including four inlets: Kalø, Begtrup, Knebel, and Ebeltoft.

Natural Treasures: National Park Boundaries and Nutrient-rich Clay

Study the National Park boundary to the southwest and understand the geological secrets of the Bronze Age. The ice has shaped the landscape, leaving behind fertile clay and creating nutrient-poor sand on the hills and shores of Ebeltoft Vig.

The legacy of the Bronze Age: Graves and high ridges

In addition to the three prominent Trehøje, the area hides around 11 other Bronze Age burial mounds. Distinctive high-backed fields, well-preserved from the Middle Ages, tell the story of the rich cultural landscape.

Nature in Harmony: From Cattle to Dominant Shrubs

Throughout the ages, cattle have grazed on the nutrient-poor hills, where today mallow, rose and juniper dominate with their thorny beauty, resistant to grazing.

The character of the co-operative: Conifers and Gulplet routes

In the cooperative era, the hills were planted with conifers, and this character is still visible in the landscape. Take part in nature's diversity and explore the exciting gulplet routes that start from this unique area.

Step into the Bronze Age treasure trove at Trehøje and let history and nature merge in a unique experience.
