General Information about Denmark
Denmark is in Northern Europe between the North and the Baltic Seas. Denmark is mainly a peninsula with a very small boundary with Germany. Denmark does also include over 400 islands. Copenhagen, the capital, is a medieval city with old cobbled streets steeped in culture with a number of art galleries and museums.
Denmark has a wonderful preserved history with over 600 castles, 28000 ancient ruins and monuments, 2400 churches and 850 museums and collections, enough to satisfy most history buffs. As you would expect with a country like Denmark, there are numerous sailing, and fishing trips available from the 270 marinas and other ports all around the Denmark coast line. For those who enjoy more land based activities there are plenty of hiking or walking tours to chose from. As the highest point in Denmark is only 170 metres above sea level, a cycling holiday would be a wonderful way of seeing the country.
As with other European countries Denmark has a wide range of accommodation choices to suit all budgets from nature camps where you can pitch your tent for a minimal payment to luxury five star hotels. Danish Youth and Family Hostels are an ideal way to meet the local people and to stay in your travels around Denmark.
