Mols Bjerge-Stien

A hike in the middle of the scenic ice age landscape

Mols Bjerge was created during the ice age, where two large glaciers swept in through the landscape. This has created a unique landscape, where high peaks with impressive views and lush depressions adorn the area by Mols Bjerge.

The hike is a full day trip, as the route is a full 20 km. However, you can take shortcuts that make the route 8 km and 15 km long, respectively. There are arrow directions for all routes on poles around the landscape. There are benches, tables and toilets in several places on the route. If you want the full nature experience, you can spend the night at the primitive shelter site at Tremosegård.

On the hike you will pass folds with horses, cattle and sheep. During the summer, you can experience the area's rich bird life, which includes eye-catching species such as the city swallow, the yellow sparrow, the song lark, the bird king and several species of titmice.

  • Tremosegård, which is a primitive shelter site with tables, benches and a fire pit
  • Tinghulen and Tremosegård are both areas that are described as death holes. That is, these two depressions in the landscape were formed by huge blocks of ice, which broke off the glacier during the last ice age. The ice blocks were pressed into the ground, after which they melted away, leaving a large depression in the landscape.
  • At Skovbjerg you can find an original bush of oak, which has been allowed to grow largely freely over time
