The honey and wax from bees were a welcome contribution in the housekeeping of the cultivators of the heath, and heather flowers render very tasty honey.

The bees make honey out of the nectar they collect from the flowers. Throughout the summer, plants blossom on the heath, but it is when the heather blossoms, that the most sought-after honey is produced.



Straw hives made through coiling were used as beehives.

By paying a fee, beekeepers can gain permission to set up beehives on the heath in Kongenshus Memorial Park. The beehives are set up to give greatest possible consideration for visitors moving around the heath. 


Access to the park
Access to the Memorial Park is free of charge. Signs with maps of the area can be found by the entrances to the Memorial Park and by the observation tower. You can follow marked hiking routes from these starting points. Please show consideration for nature and the sheep: Dogs must be kept on a lead.

There are car parks by the hotel Kongenshus Kro og Hotel, and by the observation tower. Access to the Memorial Park is free for both buses and cars. 

For people with reduced mobility

The Nature Centre and one of the hiking paths have been laid out for wheelchair users and others with reduced mobility. Furthermore, the observation tower is equipped with a lift to the observation platform six metres above ground.

Eating in the open
Enjoy your food in the picnic area around the observation tower. You will also find a bonfire site by the shelters behind the observation tower. Look after nature, and nature will look after you.
