The history behind The World Map

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

The creator of the World Map, Søren Poulsen, was born in 1888 in Denmark. After spending many years in America, he returned to his hometown where he took over his childhood home at Klejtrup Lake. One day, when the surrounding meadows were to be watered down, a stone very similar of Jutland emerged. That was when Søren Poulsen got the idea to build his own little world… With primitive aids, large stones were moved out on the ice in winter and placed. When spring came, the stones could be tilted into place and slowly the world map took shape …

The family behind The World Map

The world map has been a family owned attraction since the beginning. The operation of the whole world has been passed down from generation to generation, from Søren Poulsen to the present, where the World Map has been in the family for 3 generations.   In 1969, Søren Poulsen's adventure ends. His nephew, Helge Poulsen and his wife Othilde Poulsen, took over his world and continued his life's work and visions in the years following his death.   In 1998, they passed the baton on to their youngest daughter, Lisbeth Cassøe and her husband Flemming Cassøe, who to this day continue to have - and continue to develop - the family's legacy.   These years, the 4th generation is preparing to take over the business. The son of Lisbeth and Flemming, Søren Vejle-Cassøe, is getting ready to take over the family attraction soon.
