Tornhøj at the Path of the Gods

Tornhøj
Yesterdays photo was a road with a church far away, and I said that it had something to do with "The Path of the Gods". Tornhøj at todays photo is connected to that path and is placed a few meters from the road between Ramsømagle and Øster Syv.
Not easy to understand, but the path is a 64 km long hikingroute from Køge Bugt to Isefjorden (two danish coasts). In danish the path is called "Gudernes Stræde". There are 80 signposts with text at the path or nearby.
Tornhøj - says the text - is 3500 years old and a Big Farmer was buried here. Nearby was other graves and this part of the path has been a holy place for 5000 years.
Gudernes Stræde has it own homepage in Danish.
You will find an interactive map (danish: kort) here.
At this map you will see that path through Gadstrup, Ramsømagle and Østersyv, and if you look carefully between the last two places you will find Tornhøj.
Later I shall visit other places at the path.

I love the idea of ancient holy places.
Today some say they have special energy which can even be measured, in Boviseinheiten.

The picture is impressive.

Thank you, Jorgen, for visiting The Villages DP! I had not seen your blog before ... thus I've been scrolling down and find it fascinating! One reason is that according to my DNA tests, I have lots of connections with Denmark!

I'll be back. Have a wonderful week!
