Geocache Description:



Click flag for english.

Forhistorien er, at Hans Nicolai Hansen, 1853-1923, dansk tegner, maler og grafiker, som boede i København, byggede sig et hus med atelier på Ørnebjerg i Rebild Bakker til sin sommerbolig. Huset var uden vand, det skulle hentes ved Ravnkilde, og varmen fik man fra den store pejs. Brænde var der nok af lige udenfor døren. Nu er der tilgroet, men forestil dig, at der var udsigt til alle sider, når du besøger stedet. Sønnen Bernt Hjejle tog efternavnet i 1902, og efterkommerne, heriblandt Iben Hjejle, har siden haft dette efternavn.

Bernt og hans ungdomsvenner besøgte huset på Ørnebjerg mange gange, de afholdt ”midvinterblot” , diskuterede Johannes V. Jensen, som også besøgte huset, fortalte om Grøndlandsekspeditioner, sang sømandssange. Når disse københavnere indtog huset på bjerget, havde de hyret en skafferske fra Rebild til at lave middagsmad til dem.


En dag mellem jul og nytår 1924 havde de unge mennesker været på dagstur i Rold Skov, der var klædt i vinterdragt. Kokkepigen havde lavet sødsuppe til dem, og for at forhøje nydelsen tilsatte de den med rigelige mængder whisky. Stemningen steg stærkt efter middagen, Én af herrerne, Eigil Knuth, spillede fløjte siddende på toppen af et skab. Pludseligt hørtes der nogen, der dunkede hårdt på de store vinduer i ateliet.
De unge temmeligt berusede mennesker kiggede bekymret ud i mørket, bange for at byens borgere var ankommet for at skælde dem ud for al den ballade de forvoldte. Det var det nu ikke, men tre venner af familien, den ene den danske atomfysiker Niels Bohr. De havde i Skørping hørt om det søde liv på Ørnebjerg, og ville gøre dem selskab, så de var vandret fra kroen i Skørping ud til det animerede selskab. Natten bød på endnu mere whisky, og ud på de små timer blev Niels Bohr fulgt til kroen, og fortsatte sin fodvandring i det Himmerlandske næste dag.

"Cachen er en small, som er gemt indenfor husets mange vægge, i hjørnet i køkkenet.


Hav et godt besøg i Ørnebjerghuset.





The background story is that Hans Nicolai Hansen, 1853-1923, a Danish cartoonist, painter and graphic designer, who lived in Copenhagen, built a summer residence with a studio at “Ørnebjerg” in Rebild Bakker. The house didn’t have access to water, so they had to get the water from Ravnkilde, and the heat came from the big fireplace. Wood for the fireplace was plentiful just outside the door. Now the place is overgrown but, when you visit the location, imagine that there used to be a beautiful view to every side of the house. The son Bernt Hjelje took the name in 1902 and the descendants – including danish actress Iben Hjejle – has since had this surname.

Bernt and his friends visited the house on ”Ørnebjerg” many times. When these people visited the house on the hill they had hired a local cook to make dinner for them. One day betwen christmas and new year’s eve in 1924 the young people took a walk in Rold Forrest. The cook had made soup for them but to increase the enjoyment they added a large amount of whiskey. The atmosphere and mood rose in the house. One of the men, Eigil Knuth, played the flute on top of closet. Suddenly they heard someone pounding on the large windows of the studio. The young pretty intoxicated people looked anxiously into the darkness, afraid that the locals had arrived to scold at them for all the trouble they caused.

This was however not the case, but three friends of the family, one of these friends was the Danish atomic physicist Niels Bohr. They had heard of the sweet life on “Ørnebjerg” and wanted to join them. Therefore they had walked all the way from Skørping to the house to pay them a visit. The night resolved in more whiskey and at the wee hours Niels Bohr was followed back to the inn Skørping. The day after he continued his tour in Himmerland.


The cache is a small, which is hidden inside one of the many walls of the house, in the corner of the kitchen.

Have a nice trip to ӯrnebjerghuset
