Hov Dås (before 1948 spelled Hov Daas) is a large hill in Denmark of prehistoric and bronze age interest because it contains a couple of long barrows type of bronze and prehistoric burial types, and tumulus on top. It is situated in Jutland, in the community of Thisted. It is 54 m wide and 3 m high.[1][2]

Inside the Hov Dås one can see this barrow (there are two barrows inside this area)

In contemporary times, Hov Dås hill is used for grundlovsmøder by the Danes, which are meetings every year on 5 June to celebrate free speech and the constitution day of democracy in Denmark.
