The Monument of Jens Vejmand

At this spot on the highway north of Tjoerring, the inspiration of Aakjær's famous poem came across. In his account book he wrote on may 19th 1901: 'The stonebeater, Tjoerring, 25 oere'. Many years later Aakjær remembered and added: This man on the highway by Tjoerring gave me the first idea for the poem 'Jens Vejmand'.
