|Up through Jutland runs a
with "peaks" up to 170 m above sea level. This is the highest hills in
Denmark. The hills were deposited during the last ice age when the
of the glacier stood still for a longer period in Central Jutland.
These modest hights are high enough to give the area a "mountain-climate". The dominating western winds blows humid air in from The North Sea. It condensates over the hills resulting in precipitation as rain or snow. The Mid-Jutland highlands are therfore one of the wettest places in Denmark and some plant species have their main distribution here.
Mid-Jutland is the "lake-distrikt" in Denmark because of the
landscape with hills and valleys.
