A late Friday afternoon in 2000 to employees of Herning Municipality sat and had an after-work beer. In front of them was a map with a mark up of a big artificial lake, that should be dugout.
During that Friday afternoon, the two of them made a draft for a lake, leisure landscape, harbor front and space for 500 homes. Fuglesang lake was born. The digging started in 2003-2005, and the lake was open in 2006.
