Pikkerbakken is located in the south of Frederikshavn and is part of a 3 km long coastal slope, formed during the ice age. The height of the slope is attributed to the fact that this area has experienced Denmark's largest land uplift. The hill rises 71 metres above sea level, and from here you get an incomparable panoramic view of Frederikshavn city and the beautiful Hirsholme in Kattegat. The hill also played an important role during the 2nd World War. World War. Just a few days after the occupation, the first German troops arrived at Pikkerbakken and began setting up anti-aircraft guns to protect the ships leaving Frederikshavn harbour.
