Møllehøj is in the Ejerbjerge hills in Skanderborg municipality, very close to Ejer Bavnehøj. The summit is marked with a millstone, a remnant of Ejer mill which was situated on the hill from 1838 to 1917. The mill had eight sides and had an onion-shaped roof.
New measurements made in February 2005 showed that Møllehøj was higher than both Yding Skovhøj (172.66 m including a Bronze Age burial mound on its summit, 170.77 m without) in Horsens municipality or Ejer Bavnehøj which had both been thought higher. These two high points' natural heights are however respectively 9 and 51 cm lower than Møllehøj. It was officially recognised as Denmark's highest point in 2005.
- Himmelbjerget, which was thought to be the highest point of Denmark until 1847
- For comparison, the tallest man-made structure in Denmark is the Tommerup Transmitter, which stands 321m or 1045ft high.
