This big boulder of Dammestenen is also known as Damestenen (The lady stone) and Hesselagerstenen (after the location),  is without any question the largest boulder known in Denmark (well, except the island of Bornholm). It is found at the end of its own road on the island of Fyn.
The Dammestenen have been introduced here from the south of Sweden, in the context of the Baltic ice approach. It is most likely is that a glacier tongue has slipped over Sweden, which Dammestene has been broken loose from the bedrock and frozen into the bottom of the glacier, then it have been transported to its present position by the glazier.

Origin:

Legend: They say that a lady who lived in Hou (the northern end of Langeland), exasperated that the tower of Svinninge church served the seafarers too good a beakon, in anger once threw the this giant stone against Svinninge tower. But although one can not deny that the good lady had forces and understood that aim, the stone only reached 2/3 of the way ".
When the witch had cast stone and was well on the way to Svinninge, there came an angel down from heaven and put his foot in it so that it fell down, where it now stands. And upstairs there is a brand used by a foot.
It has come from Langeland.
Catapulted in the garter of a giant from Bregninge hill, Tåsinge, after Svindinge church; the band burst, so it did not come that far.
Thrown in garter of a troll woman on Langeland after Svindinge church.
Thrown by a woman on Langeland for Svinninge church tower.
Thrown in a garter of a troll from the outermost point of Langeland after Svindinge church tower.
Thrown by a sorceress at Hov after Svindinge church because it could be seen so far away and had three bells, "one of which is one of the largest in this country." -
Thrown by a giantess at Korsor after a dragon-like snake at Bregninge church.
Thrown by a giant from one of the neighbouring islands from the first church, as the bells rang.
Dammestenen must be thrown by a giant from Langeland after Svindinge church. The pack just does not stand to hear the bells; and this had certainly thought to do its peoples great pleasure, by crushing the church before she was finished. However, he did not know what he wanted for his garters, which he slung the stone in, went to pieces, and the stone fell, where it is yet. The more infidels do not think the stone has been so great at the giant threw him, but it has grown since, yes there are those who think it is growing yet, every time it smells new bread.
