This big boulder of Pengestenen is found in the large Grin Forest, more specific in Tumlinge Vang, around 400 from the large Esrum Lake

Location: Skovportevej 1. 3230 Græsted. N 6214317 E 709413
GPS: 56.026913, 12.359181

Size: 1 metres high, 3 metres wide and 3 meters long. Estimate weight  tons.

Meaning of the name: Money stone.

Material: Gneiss

Origin: ?

Legend: One can see the marks of Kullemandens arms and teeth. The name derives from the rumour that underneath the stone is buried a treasure - probably one of those "Mother Grib "has collected! Whether it is simply unfounded rumours are known not, but it is certain that occasionally can be seen digging trail around the stone from hopeful treasure hunters.
Another explanation for the name is that this was where the loggers got their pay, from a colleague who had collected money for his comrades.
