Go on a cheap car holiday in Denmark and visit the World Map at Hobro. One day, some meadows were to be drained near Klejtrup Lake, south of Hobro, and a stone appeared that looked like Jutland. This prompted Søren Poulsen, a dancing cameraman, to build his own little world in the meadows. The new world was built between 1944 and 1969 and measures 45 x 90 metres. It was built by placing large stones on top of the frozen meadows and in the places where the worlds were to be. When the ice melted, the stones could be tilted into place with some difficulty. The equator is marked with red poles and the whole world map is reproduced with lakes, rivers and famous mountain ranges, so it's easy to send mum and dad to Australia, Borneo or Mount Everest if they want to. There's also an 18-hole mini-golf course on the World Map and in summer it's a great place to enjoy a sail in the Pacific Ocean, where even the little ones can join in, although there may be a few waves. Find a cheap summer holiday at Risskov and take the whole family on an adventure around the world on the 'World Map',
