The map is located in the center of a park where you can also have a picnic and enjoy a cup of coffee and pastries after your adventure. This amazing attraction is the work of one man, Søren Poulsen, who built the map using rudimentary hand tools, a wheelbarrow, and pushcart. The islands were constructed atop a pond with soil and stone. His idea for the map came after noticing a stone on his property that was shaped like the Jutland peninsula. Poulsen began the project in 1944 and worked on it for 25 years until his death in 1969. Approximately 35,000 people visit the attraction each year.
