Yding Skovhøj in Horsens municipality, Jutland is one of Denmark's highest points. Its height is 172.54 m above sea level when the height of one of the Bronze Age burial mounds built on the top of the hill is included. If these man-made structures are ignored the hill's highest point is at 170.77 m, which is 9 cm lower than Denmark's highest natural point, Møllehøj at 170.86 m. Ejer Bavnehøj is Denmark's third highest natural point at 170.35 m.
Yding Forest covers the hill. Within the forest there are three Bronze Age burial mounds. Høj, from the Old Norse word haugr, can be translated to mean hill or mound. The highest point is the central mound. The eastern burial mound is 171.73 m high and the western one is 171.41 m high.
