Denmark Cities with Hotels
Denmark, constitutional monarchy in northwestern Europe, the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries (see Scandinavia). Officially Kingdom of Denmark (Danish Kongeriget Danmark), it is bounded on the north by the Skagerrak, an arm of the North Sea; on the east by the Kattegat (an extension of the Skagerrak) and the Ã˜resund, a strait linking the Kattegat and the Baltic Sea; on the south by the Baltic Sea, a strait called the Fehmarn, and Schleswig-Holstein, Germany; and on the west by the North Sea. Denmark comprises most of the Jutland, or Jylland, peninsula (extending about 338 km [about 210 mi] in a north and south direction), and numerous islands in the Baltic and North seas.
The principal islands, lying between the mainland and Sweden, are Fyn, Lolland, SjÃ¦lland, Falster, Langeland, and MÃ¸n. About 130 km (about 80 mi) to the east of SjÃ¦lland, in the Baltic, is the Danish island of Bornholm. Far to the northwest of Jutland, in the Atlantic Ocean, between the Shetland Islands and Iceland, lie the Faeroe Islands, a group of 18 islands, part of Denmark since 1948; and near the North American mainland, between the North Atlantic and the Arctic oceans, is the island of Greenland, an integral part, from 1953, of the Danish monarchy. Both the Faeroe Islands and Greenland are internally self-governing. Excluding these islands, Denmark has an area of 43,069 sq km (16,629 sq mi). Copenhagen (Danish KÃ¸benhavn) is the capital and largest city.

Land and Resources
The surface of the Danish mainland is generally low; the average elevation is about 30 m (about 100 ft) above sea level.
A low range of hills in the east central portion of the Danish mainland includes Yding SkovhÃ¸j (173 m/568 ft), the highest point in Denmark. The western coast of the mainland is low and rimmed by dunes and sandbars. The east coast, which is slightly higher in elevation, is indented by a series of fjords that penetrate deeply into the interior. The Limfjorden, the most northerly of these indentations, extends in a generally east to west direction across the entire breadth of the peninsula from the Kattegat to the North Sea.
Denmark has a temperate maritime climate. The mean temperature in summer is about 16Â° C (about 61Â° F); in winter, about 0Â° C (about 32Â° F). Changes in wind direction cause wide day-to-day temperature fluctuations. Average annual rainfall is about 610 mm (about 24 in).
