Mols Bjerge (Mols Hills) has great national importance as the area is unique both in terms of landscape and geology. The landscape with its rolling hills was formed during the end of the latest ice age, about ten thousand years ago.
The national park is named after Mols Bjerge, the best known natural area in the region, although it only covers a smaller part of the national park. In total, the park covers about 180 km2.
The area features an undulating terrain, with large ranges of hills that rise up to 137 meters above sea level, as well as different natural habitats such as heath, forests, bogs, pastures and beach meadows.
People have lived in this area for thousands of years. Our ancestors clearly believed in the hereafter as is witnessed by the many barrows, dolmens and passage graves they built. Driving through the landscape of Mols the visitor cannot help but notice the abundancy of granite barrows that were raised on hills dozens of centuries ago as burial sites for ancient chieftains.
