Geographic overview

Denmark is located in Northern Europe, and consists of the hilly central area on the Jutland peninsula and 440 named islands in the Baltic Sea, together referred to as the Danish Archipelago. Denmark's lowest point is Lammefjord, at 7 meters below sea level and the highest natural point is Mollehoj, at 170.86 meters. The average height of the country is only 31 meters above the sea level. The country is drained by almost a dozen of rivers. The most significant are Guden, which is the longest river and separates both the Baltic and North Seas, along its tidal shoreline. The ocean constantly erodes and adds material to the coastline so the size of the land area of Denmark cannot be stated exactly. Denmark experiences a temperate climate, with mild and windy winters and cool summers. Denmark has flat local terrains, generally with a few gently rolling plains, and is extremely picturesque.

The term means different things to different people, but the Danes insist on experiencing it as frequently as possible as a way of life, in a manner unique to every person.

Denmark has a very strong tradition, though Danes are known to be ‘not so religious’ people. In their day to day life as well as in the festivals and celebrations that they have, a strong influence of tradition is seen. Danish flag – ‘the Dannebrog’ is a part of their tradition and every celebration. The mention of Dannebrog is found in their texts dating 100 years back.
