Dyret

Between Onsbjerg and Tanderup lies Dyret, which rises 51 meters above the ground level and thus the highest point of the southern part of Samsø. From there you have a fabulous view. In pagan times, people called Dyret – the Mountain of Odin, which has given name to the village of Onsbjerg. As it was taboo to mention Odin by name the locals decided to name it Dyret. During the Second World War, the Germans had an observation post on the hill. Dyret has also been a gathering point for local meetings. You find access to the hill from the roads on both the east and west side
