Tisvilde Hegn is a 13 km2 plantation in North Zealand planted 1793-1875 in an area between the sea of Kattegat, Tisvildeleje and the largest lake in Denmark Arresø.

The landscape has been formed since the Stone Age more than 5000 years ago by elevation of the bottom of the sea and by big sandstorms from 1500-1700 A.C.
