Himmelbjerget ("The Heaven Mountain" or "The Sky Mountain") is a hill located between Ry and Silkeborg, Denmark. With a height of 147 metres (482 feet) it is one of the highest points of elevation, and commonly celebrated as the highest point, in Denmark, which it was believed to be until 1847. Denmark's highest point is Møllehøj (at 170.86 m).
The high hill was once a popular destination for its beautiful nature and magnificent views. One can sail to Himmelbjerget from Ry, or from Silkeborg on the historic steamship Hjejlen ("The Golden Plover").
On top of the hill is a 25.1 metre tall tower that was erected to honour King Frederik VII and his role in giving the Danish people a constitution in 1849. Close to the top are more monuments, most honouring individuals, but also one to commemorate women's right to vote in 1915.
