They have heavenly time in Himmerland!

A man i sleeping with his dog in a hilly flower grove, a boy is sitting in the sun by an ancient runestone and downhill lies the camping area near the 1500th century castle. A perfect vacation time.

This tourist advertisement encourage people to visit Himmerland - a peninsula in northeastern Jutland, Denmark. The slogan "De har det himmelsk i Himmerland" is a pun playing with the Danish word "himmelsk" (heavenly) and Himmerland.

It is assumed that the name "Himmerland" is derived from the tribe of the Cimbri since, in the Geography of Ptolemy (2nd century AD), the Kimbroi are located in the northernmost part of the peninsula of Jutland. Historians are not sure if it was the people from Himmerland who to part in sacking the Roman Empire - true or not - the place is much more calm than in those days. The poster artist, Harry Kesmodel, acturally wrote two books about the history of the Cimbri tribe.

Overall this is a beautiful and colorful travel poster that would bring happiness wherever its placed.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
