Geocache Description:

English translation below!

Cacheturen er en vandretur (rundtur) på ca. 5 km og fører til et spændende sted med historisk betydning:


I året 1219 drog den danske konge Valdemar over Østersøen på et korstog mod de hedenske vendere. Sagnet fortæller, at da kampen i slaget ved Reval (Tallin i Estland) var hårdest, dalede en rød dug med et hvidt kors ned fra himlen, og en røst lød: "Når dette mærke hæves højt, skulle I sejre".

Kong Valdemar Sejr vandt slaget, og for første gang kæmpede danskerne under Dannebrog. Vi mindes endnu årsdagen for slaget - den 15. juni - Valdemars Dag. Mindre kendt er det, at her på Kongehøj blev Dannebrog ifølge sagnet for første gang præsenteret for danskerne. Det siges, at Valdemar Sejr kom sejlende til Kongehøj på sin vej til Urnehoved Tingsted, hvor han skulle hyldes som konge.

Det er svært at fatte, når man ser lanskabet i dag, men dengang var engene omkring Aabenraa store vådområder, og skovene, som dækkede det øvrige terræn, var ufremkommelige.

This is a hikingtour of approx. 5 km. It leads you to an interesting historical site of Danish history:
 
In 1219 the Danish king Valdemar went to crusade against the heathen Wends over the Baltic Sea. The tale says that when the fight at Reval (Tallin in Estland) was very hard, a red cloth with a white cross came down from heaven, and a voice said:" When you hold up this symbol, you will win".

King Valdemar won the battle, and it was the first time the Danes fought under Dannebrog, their flag. The day of the battle is a holiday in Denmark now - 15. june - and named Valdemars Dag (Valdemar's day). It is not so well-known that at this place here, called Kongehøj (king's hill), the Danish flag Dannebrog has been presented to the Danish people for the first time. The tale says that Valdemar Sejr sailed to Kongehøj on his way to Tingsted, to be paid homage to as king.

It's not easy to imagine this when you look at the landscape today. But at that time Aabenraa has been surrounded by water, and the woods, covering the rest of the region, have been impenetrable.
