Denmark is situated in northern Europe between the North Sea and the Baltic and between Continental Europe and the Scandinavian Peninsula. The Jutland Peninsula is part of continental Europe and has a 68 km territorial border with Germany.
The rest of the country is made up of 406 islands, connected by numerous bridges and ferries giving a total coastline of 7,300 km. When in Denmark, you are never more than 52 km from the sea. The Kingdom of Denmark also includes Greenland, the world’s largest island, and the Faroe Islands. Both these territories are situated in the North Atlantic and both have home rule.
The Danish countryside is rather flat. The highest natural point (Møllehøj) is 170.86 meters above sea level and granite cliffs can be found only on the island of Bornholm. The countryside is characterized by agricultural land, with numerous cultivated areas, woods, forests and streams. About 65% of the country is agricultural, 11% is woodland and the rest – 23% – are towns, roads and lakes.
Denmark has a rather humid, temperate climate with variable and often unpredictable weather. Spring comes in April/May; summer temperatures vary from 15-25 °C, but can go up to 30-35 °C. Around September it gets colder. January and February are usually the coldest months with an average temperature of 2 °C. However, it can get as cold as minus 10 °C or lower.
