The one thing my country doesn’t have is... Denmark

The one thing my country doesn’t have is mountains.

Denmark is a small country with land mass about a tenth of Spain and California. The country is more or less made of clay, pebble stone and residue from the ice age glaciers. This means that if you look from afar Denmark is flat as a plate.

If you go closer you will however see that that is not completely right. There are little bumps. Like this one which once was considered the highest point in Denmark. In Danish it is called Himmebjerget - "The Sky Mountain". Though it has a grandiose name it is only 147 meters above sea level (The tallest point in Denmark is 173 m a.s.l).
