Welcome to Mols Bjerge Nature Park!

Mols Bjerge is one of the impressive landscapes of Denmark. Just follow the winding gravel roads and small paths into the heart of the area, and you will experience a very varied nature with thick forest and open hills covered with heath. You will also find a wide view over the sea and the coastal area.

The landscape:

Mols Bjerge was created at the end of the last Ice Age, where large ice tongues expanded from the south and up via Ebeltoft and the bay of Kalø. Mols Bjerge is created from the ice masses on Djursland and material of sand and stone, which the ice tongues pushed together. The largest hills are the hills in the west, which are built of melt water sand and gravel. Agri Bavnehøj is the largest with its 137 m.

Visit Ebeltoft, an old market town, which has a history traced back to 1301. King Erik Menved gave some special privileges to the town January 21, 1301. This meant that the inhabitants could practise trade and handicraft under the protection of the king. How about a stroll through the town with its many leaning half-timbered houses and have a look at the many hollyhocks and cobble stones, before you go down to the smallest town hall of the world. The town hall has a little jail, and you will really feel like you’re back in the days of Robin Hood.

Enter the longest wooden ship of the world with its impressing rigging at the three masts, 50 meter above the floor. From there, you can see the entire town of Ebeltoft. The ship gives the town an atmosphere like the days when these ships were a common feature of the town’s daily life. The frigate had a crew of 430 persons. The cabins and salons are furnished exactly as when the ship was built in 1860. The gun deck has, besides its 30 canons, also 23 figures, illustrating the life on board the ship.

We can also recommend Djurs Sommerland if you want to share a nice day with the kids. There are more than 60 activities, ranging from Colorado River to Africa Land.

If you rather like some more thrill, you should try a visit to the tropical sharks at the Kattegat Centre. Make a trip through the glass tunnel and walk at the bottom of the sharks’ basin. You can’t get closer to the sandtiger sharks with a length of 2,5 m. Kattegat Centret is also housing a wide range of tropical fishes.
