Kalø Castle Ruin and the parking area. The walk to the ruin is approximately 1.5 km one way. The path goes across an artificial causeway that is stone-paved and bumpy, but you can push a pram there. In the parking area, you will find an ice cream stand and toilets, and more walking and cycle paths to the woods nearby spin out from here. In the woods is a large concentration of antiquities.
Agri Bavnehøj, Mols Hills National Park’s highest point. The centre of Denmark, which serves as the starting point for measuring the country.
Tre Høje. Find the three hills, feel the whistling in your ears when you stand on the top and continue until you have come across the next hill and then the next hill. In the Mols Hills, there are many paths that run past burial mounds, interesting geological finds and much more. Take one of the hiking route brochures from the holders that stand in several places, including Tre Høje. At the same time, you can experience the national park with a mobile phone app.

The burial mounds at Thorsø. North of Grenaa stands 9 remaining burial mounds from the monumental grave mound group known as “Thorsø Høje”. Here – approx. 50 m above the sea – there is a wide view over the surrounding cultural landscape and Kattegat to the east. In clear weather, Thorsø Høje is a good place for an excursion with a picnic basket, and to the northeast, you can catch a glimpse of Anholt on the horizon.
