Kongenshus memorial park

KH-landskab-del5Kongenshus Memorial Park for the Cultivators of the Heath is an independent institution, which was founded with the objective of managing the area as a memorial park for the people who cultivated the Danish heath.

KH-landskab-del2For this purpose, approx. 1,200 hectares of uncultivated heath, located 25 km southwest of the city of Viborg, were purchased in 1942.


  

KH-landskab-del1The area has been left untouched as a heather area with a typical nature of heath plains with meltwater gorges. In the southern part of the area, a 70-hectare coniferous plantation has been established.

KH-landskab-del6bgAround the observation tower at the heart of the heath, information boards have now been set up, allowing you to immerse yourself in the history of the cultivators of the heath.
