Denmark is divided into five principal regions, which you will find in our next map.

North Jutland, also known as Nordjylland, is the northernmost territory of Denmark. It is famous for some of Denmark’s largest forests, including Rold Skov and Rebild Bakker. The area has many wildlife and bird reserves, making it the wildest of the five regions.

Central Jutland, or Midtjylland, is located in the heart of Denmark. Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark, and Herning is known for its textile industry. Aarhus is a cultural hub with numerous museums, galleries, and festivals. Central Jutland is home to Legoland.

Zealand, or Sjælland, is Denmark’s largest island and is home to the capital city, Copenhagen. It has the most diverse landscape of the localities with beaches, farmland, forest, and cityscape. The island is connected to mainland Denmark by several bridges and tunnels. Copenhagen is one of Europe‘s most vibrant and cultural cities, with world-class museums, galleries, and architecture.

The Capital Region, or Hovedstaden, is the smallest of Denmark’s regions but the most densely populated. This region encompasses the Greater Copenhagen area and is famous for its edgy architecture, restaurants, museums, castles, and the royal palace of Amalienborg.

Even though each territory has its unique distinctions, Denmark’s five regions also have common ground regarding geography and characteristics. One of the most impressive is that most of the country lies only 34 meters above sea level, making it one of the lowest-lying countries in the world!

Denmark does not have mountains, with the highest geographic elevation reaching at most 170 meters. The country’s landscape is primarily flat, with rolling hills and sandy beaches found from end to end. This geography lends itself to agricultural production, which thrives throughout the country. In addition to agriculture, manufacturing, fishing, and shipping are the major contributors to the country’s economy.

The following map outline is a blank map of Denmark with neighboring countries, which you can use to teach or learn about northern Europe and Scandinavia.

Denmark shares one land border with another country, Germany. Historically, the southern part of Denmark and the northern part of Germany have blended, as border lines were drawn and redrawn throughout the ages. Today, there is a large Danish minority in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein and a German minority in the South Jutland.

Apart from the border with Germany, Denmark is connected to Sweden by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund Strait in the east. Most of the boundaries of Denmark are defined by water, as seas surround it on three sides. To the west, Denmark is bordered by the North Sea, while the Baltic Sea lies to the east. The Skagerrak Strait, which separates Denmark from Norway, lies to the north.
