What, like real mountains aren't named after things you find there?!?!

I visited the Rocky Mountains once. The name checked out.

Conversely, "Himmelbjerget" (translation: Sky Mountain) does not reach the sky and is in fact a 147m (482 ft) tall hill.

What does the top touch if not sky? I would say that all mountains above sea level technically touch the sky

Either a gift shop or a touristy restaurant. Haven't been there in a long time, so I'm a bit hazy on the details.

Well it's just a hill, not a mountain, and there's buildings on top of it, so double no lol
