Denmark is a country – 44.000 km2 in size surrounded by 7000 km coastlines with seas, fjords, rivers and belts.

The landscape was founded after the last icecap melting away 10.-12.000 years ago.

The next 6000 years hunters invaded the fjords, sea and rivers to hunt and fish.

3-4000 years Before Christ agriculture developed and small communities were built all over the country.

Sophisticated tools of stone to cut wood, to hunt and to prepare the ground for agriculture were developed 2-4.000 B.Ch.

Later on the main metal for use was bronze 1500-500 B. Ch. and between 500 B. Ch. until today iron was dominant for all purposes incl. weapons.

 

Winter in Denmark is dominated of a mixture of plus and minus degrees – with some mild and rainy wether – but every years we are lucky to have long periods with minus degrees and snow.

In 2018 the cold weather arrived in january and here i february. 

 

I am living close to Arresø Lake and 9. februar I decided to visit Arresø Lake, Arrenæs, Dronningholm Castle Mounds and Nature Center Auderød Harbour:
