The world happened by accident…

- Once the water was gone, the rest went like a game!

The creator of Verdenskortet, Søren Poulsen, was born in 1888 in Denmark. After a time in America, he returned to his home region, where he took over his childhood home at Klejtrup Lake. When it was time to drain the surrounding meadows, a stone, that looked very much like Jutland, appeared.
That gave Søren Poulsen the idea of building his own little world ...
With primitive tools, large stones were moved out on the ice in the winter and placed to look like the world. When spring came, they tilted the stones into place, and slowly the World Map took its shape ...
