Geography

With an area of just 43,069 square kilometers (16,629 square miles), Denmark is a small, relatively flat nation encompassing the Jutland Peninsula and roughly 500 islands (100 of which are inhabited).

This complex of islands makes travel somewhat like an amusement-park ride, with combinations of trains, buses, and boats coming into play any time travelers want to move from one island to the next. Jutland, the country's largest area, has a varied landscape, from the dunes and flat meadows of the east coast to the more dramatic cliffs of the west coast. It is here that Denmark is connected to Europe.

The highest hill, at 173 meters (568 feet), is Yding Skovhoj in Jutland. On Funen, northeast of Faborg, are the Svanninge Bakker, low hills that are nonetheless high enough to offer a panorama of the islands south of Funen. Denmark is an agricultural country, with three-quarters of the land devoted to farming.

As you drive across the country, you'll notice the unique farm buildings called gaards. The thatched roofs on so many of the half-cottages are uniquely Danish. They are made from rush harvested from fresh-water lakes and are expensive both to construct and to insure, but many Danes persevere, not wanting to relinquish a long-standing tradition.


Climate

Denmark has a temperate maritime climate. The temperature in summer is about 16 C (about 61 F); in winter, about 0 C (about 32 F). Changes in wind direction causes wide day-to-day temperature fluctuations. Average annual rainfall is about 610 mm (about 24 in).


Background: Once the seat of Viking raiders and later a major north European power, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation that is participating in the political and economic integration of Europe.

So far, however, the country has opted out of some aspects of the European Union's Maastricht Treaty, including the new joint monetary system.
