We found this Gunnera in a nature reserve close to Dyvig/Denmark, but in the meanwhile I have learned that it is not native to Europe and most likely escaped from a nearby garden.
Actually it is native to  Latin AmericaAustraliaNew ZealandPapuasiaHawaiiinsular Southeast AsiaAfrica, and Madagascar. It lives symbiotically with a certain cyanobacteria, which provides fixed nitrogen to the plant while receiving fixed carbon.
