Den danske statsminister Mette Frederiksen har idag den 23. marts 2020 forlænget alle forhold omkring begrænsninger for danskernes adfærd og af erhvervslivet aktiviteter indtil foreløbigt til den 13. april 2020.

Danskere og udlændige må i det offentlige rum ikke samles i grupper større end 10 personer. 

Alle offentlige institutioner er lukket: skoler, gymnasier, universiteter, læreanstalter, børnehaver, vuggestuer, efterskoler, biblioteker, museer m.m.

Plejehjem er lukket for alle ikke strengt nødvendige besøg.

Alle restauranter, cafeer, barer, fitnesscentre m.m. er lukket.

 

When Denmark close down – then nature open up.

When you keep distance of 2 m you can enjoy fellowship with family and friends in nature – on walk, bike and run.

It is extremely important to stay outdoor in movement and exercise daily. It will improve your immune system and give you an excellent health to avoid sickness.

 

In Denmark we have excellent nature in parks, forests, lakes and beaches.

I will take you to some of my favour forests, lakes and beaches in the surroundings of North Sealand, where I live all year around:

I continue my drive 2 km further to Tibirke Bakker for a walk through the hills on a public path.

 

Tibirke Bakker er den sydøstlige del af Tisvilde Hegn og ligger som nabo til Arresø, Ellemosen og Holløse Bredning.

Området består af bølgede morænebakker, som er dannet af istidsgletchere fra den Sidste Istid for ca. 12-20.000 år siden.

Landskabet er bevokset med græs, lyng og spredte træer og buske.

Tisvilde hegn dækker et område på 13 km2 mellem Liseleje og Tisvildeleje. Området er fredet ifølge dansk lovgivning gennem bl.a. Naturbeskyttelsesloven.

Tisvilde Hegn, Melby Overdrev, Liseleje Plantage og Tibirke Bakker indgår i det europæiske netværk NATURA 2000 og er beskyttet af EU-fugledirektiv og EU-Habitatdirektiv.

Hele området er udpeget som EU-Habitatsområde (NATURA 2000), fordi det inderholder sjældne og bevaringsværdige naturtyper, dyr og planter.

 

Tibirke Bakker is an eastern part of the forest Tisvilde Hegn in North Sealand. Its a hilly area formed under the last Danish Ice Age from 16.000-10.000 B.C. with hills up to 74 meter above sea level.

Holløse Bredning is a former part of the salted Arre Fjord connected to Kattegat Sea in The Old Danish Stone Age  from 9000 – 2400 B.C. In the New Stone Age Period from 2400 – 1700  B.C. the land where Arre Fjord was connected to Kattegat Sea ( today Asserbo Plantage) rised and Arre Fjord became an inland lake “Arresø” together with Holløse Bredning at the eastern part of the lake.
