Grønnesse Skov

This ancient woodland is located next to Roskilde Fjord, and excavations have shown that Grønnesse Skov was one of Zealand’s most significant early cultural centres during the Neolithic period. A dolmen, or exceptional burial chamber, is one of the most significant remnants of Denmark’s Neolithic history. It is made out of a large flat stone that is supported by three substantial pillars. The dolmen, known locally as Carlssten (Carl’s Stone), is one of Denmark’s largest and best-preserved examples of its kind. The woodland parking lot is not far, however it must be reached on foot.
