Denmark a Scandinavian Country

Aug 18, 2007
Denmark is the smallest Scandinavian country, consisting of the Jutland peninsula, north of Germany and over 400 islands of various sizes, some is inhabited, linked to the mainland by ferry or bridge. The landscape consists mainly of low lying, fertile countryside broken by beech woods, fjords and small lakes.

Today, visitors to Denmark find a country that is peaceful, introspective, egalitarian and neutral. This is the epitome of a modern, civilised society, one especially noted for its progressive policies, widespread tolerance and liberal social welfare system.

Inland from the 3000 miles of white sand beaches and unspoiled islands, youll find a landscape eminently suitable for cycling trips. Sleepy villages clustered around whitewashed churches occupy a landscape of rolling hills, heather moors and rich farmland dotted with windmills and thatched farmhouses. Ferries ply between the mainland and the many islands, competing with some awesome bridges like the 10 miles link to Sweden.

The nation that produced the great story teller, Hans Christian Andersen, continues to have as its hallmarks good taste, world class design and uniformly high standards that apply equally to its accommodation, cuisine and transport then add to this a people both amiable and helpful, with a facility for languages, and the result is an overwhelming sense of welcome.

From the spirited nightlife and lively cafe and music scene of its capital, Copenhagen, home to world renowned museums and cultural activities, to a countryside that abounds in Renaissance churches, medieval castles and 18th century fishing villages, Denmark is a synergy of many harmonious relationships.

The network of scheduled air services radiates from Copenhagen. Other airports well served by domestic airlines include Alborg, Arhus, Billund, Esbjerg, Karup, Skrydstrup, Sonderborg and Thisted.

Domestic airports are generally located between 2 or more cities which are within easy reach of each other. Domestic flights are usually of no more than 30 minutes long.

Limousines are available. Discounts are available on some tickets bought in Denmark. Family, children and young persons discounts are also available.

The main cities on all islands are connected to the rail network.

Smorebro is a highly popular traditional Danish dish that is mainly eaten at lunchtime and consists of a slice of dark bread with butter, topped with slices of meat, fish or cheese and garnish. It bears no resemblance to traditional sandwiches and needs to be eaten sitting down at a table with a knife and fork. Buffet style lunch is also popular with a variety of fish, meats, hot dishes, sweets and cheese, usually on a self service basis. Danes do not mix the various dishes on their plates but have them in strict order.

A normal Danish breakfast, or morgen complete, consists of coffee or tea and an assortment of breads, rolls, and cheese and jam, often also sliced meats, boiled eggs and warm Danish pastries. Shellfish also forms an important part of Danish cuisine. Apart from the traditional dishes, French or international cuisine is the order of the day.
