Denmark is located north of Germany,(has 68 kilometer shared border), west of Sweden (divided by the Øresund and Baltic Sea) and south of Norway (divided by the Skagerrak) and east of Great Britain (divided by the North Sea). It is about 43,000 square kilometers in size. Denmark is the smallest of all the Scandinavian countries.
Denmark is divided into 3 main areas:
Jutland [Jylland] Peninsula, which shares a border with Germany to the south and is about 30,000 square kilometers
Zealand [Sjælland], which is the main island where Copenhagen [København] is located and covers a little over 7000 square kilometers, but has the largest Danish population
Funen [Fyn] at a little under 3000 sq. km., the island where you will find Odense, the home of Hans Christian Andersen,
Note: The names in brackets are the Danish names.
On the map, you can see that there are a lot of islands. In fact Denmark has 407 islands, including Sjælland and Fyn, which are both islands. Only Jutland is not an island ... it is a penninsula. The rest of Denmark is made up of islands!
Another popular island is Bornholm, which is located east of Denmark in the Baltic Sea, just south of Sweden, west of Russia. You will need to move the map of Denmark pretty far east (to the right) to find it. If you have it at 2 or 3, you will see the name Rønne, which is the main city of Bornholm.
Greenland and the Faroe Islands are provinces of Denmark. Greenland is off the east coast of Canada and the Faroe Islands are located about halfway between Iceland and Scotland. Both are still provinces of Denmark at this time. (might change soon - June 2009)
Some other islands you may wish to check out are Lolland, Møn, Samsø, Langeland, Rømø and Als. There are many more and I will discuss those on another page.

There are over 70 historic churches in North Jutland located at "The Top of Denmark". Each worth visiting. Many date from the early 1200s and are still used for services.
