In northern Germany, Denmark is generally associated with Scandinavia. Good and bad idea. Because Denmark, between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, has a particular identity that makes it the Latin country of Scandinavia. Its geography, first of all, is quite particular. While most of the country is continental, its capital Copenhagen is located on a large island facing Sweden. Despite this fragmentation of the territory, Danish unity is often honoured, despite a great natural and cultural diversity.
Between Viking sagas and royal dynasties, the Danish identity is very specific. While admiring the Little Mermaid in the middle of its port, Copenhagen unveils its royal palaces and parks, its museums, its towers whose architecture stands out in a warm capital. The moors of northern Jutland offer an unusual landscape of dunes clinging to cliffs or covered with sand. Then the majestic spectacle of lakes, beech forests, charming islands or vast beaches of fine sand that border the west coast. But if Copenhagen is a splendid capital, do not miss the other cities of the country which also have hidden treasures: Odense, Aarhus or Aalborg in the lead. Finally, you will certainly be seduced by Danish design, renowned throughout the world. Travelling to Denmark means letting yourself be carried away by a beneficial nature and a most welcoming people... So live and let live!
