This big boulder of Grydestenen
found along the road Strandvejen,
between Hasmark and Otterup, between to
farmhouses. It have been a way larger
boulder, but it have been blown up into
smaller pieces. Four are still here, and
the bigger one is still impressive.
Strandvejen 175, 5450 Otterup.
GPS: 55.547653, 10.439938
Size: The big
one is still 1,8 metres
high, 2,8 metres wide and 4,6 meters
Meaning of the
name: The pot stone.
According to the legend, Grydestenen was
thrown by a giant from Munkebo Bakke or
Hindsholm at Norup Church, as the giant
did not like the church bell sound.
Another story tells of a bet between two
giants. One giant should hit Norup
Church down, but failed.
The stone is told to rotate, when it
smells freshly baked bread - and all
three times when the baker passes by
using fresh bread.
