Firehøje and Kong Rans Høj (barrows)

Firehøje is located a short distance north of Randbøl Church along Hærvejen south of Gødding Skov, and the four burial mounds from the Bronze Age are located in way that you can easily spot them. From the top of the four blueberry-covered mounds there are good views to several other mounds. At Randbøl Church, King Rans Høj is located in the cemetery.

The 7.5-acre large heathland situated north of Randbøl Church was named after the four Bronze-Age grave mounds – Firhøje and Kong Rans Høj. There are magnificent views from the top of the four blueberry-covered barrows.   

Kong Rans Høj (Mound of King Ran) is located at the Randbøl churchyard. According to legend, a battle was fought between two local kings in Gødding Forest: King Ran and King Amled. King Ran and many of his men were killed. King Ran was buried in the great mound in the churchyard and his men are buried in the mounds of Firehøje.
