Geocache Description:

Mindesten i Tovstrup

Vi synes, det er pudsigt, at vi i Danmark har så mange fine mindesten – uden at nogen egentlig ved, hvorfor de står der, og hvem den er sat for! Stenene er et besøg værd for måske på den måde at lære mere om dette lands fortid.

Tæt ved bygrænsen til Tovstrup står der en mindesten for Niels Jensen (1845-1916). Stenen er indhegnet af træer og buske, og der er lagt ral på jorden og opstillet en bænk, således at man kan side og mindes, mens man nyder udsigten. Vi kører tit forbi denne sten, og det har undret os, hvilken mand Niels Jensen var, siden sådan et fint sted blev opstillet og efterfølgende holdt ved lige.
Oplysninger om Niels Jensen er meget svære at finde. Vi har søgt længe på nettet uden at finde andet end, at han var venstremand og folketingspolitiker. I tiden som politiker var han en af hovedpersonerne i beslutningen om at opføre en jernbane mellem Århus og Hammel – en jernbane, der for længst er afskaffet, og sporene er pillet op (

Besøg denne mindesten og overvej, hvilken politikker der i dag ville få stillet sådan et fint sted til minde om dem og lade det blive holdt, selv når alle for længst har glemt dem …..

Denne cache er en lille let drive-by cache.

Monument in Tovstrup

We think it is peculiar that we have so many nice monuments in Denmark – without anyone actually knowing why they are there or for whom they have been raised! The monuments are worth a visit – maybe to learn more about the history of this country.

Close to the city boundary in Tovstrup, a monument for Niels Jensen (1845-1916) is located. The monument is enclosed by trees and bushes, pebble gravel has been laid on the ground and a bench is placed so that you can recollect while enjoying the view. We often pass by this monument and we have wondered who Niels Jensen was since such a nice place has been arranged and maintained for him. It is not easy to find information about Niels Jensen. We have searched the internet for a long time without finding anything but the information that he was a member of the Danish Parliament for Venstre. In his time as a politician, he was one of the major players in the resolution to build a railway between Aarhus and Hammel – a railway which was abolished and dismantled a long time ago (

Visit this monument and consider which politicians of today you think would be provided with such a nice place in their memory ...

This cache is a small easy drive-by cache.
