Denmark Mini Guide
Denmark is part of Scandinavia. It consists of Jutland which is a peninsula which runs to the north of Germany, and two major islands, Funen and Zealand in the Ostersoen Sea. Historically Denmark was home to the Viking hordes, now it has evolved into a major European economic power. Denmark consists of four separate regions; Jutland forms the largest part and makes up the section of Denmark which is on the European mainland. Funen is an island, featuring dramatic coastline. Zealand is the largest island in Denmark, upon which the Danish capital city of Copenhagen was constructed. Bornholm is the third island, often named Vacation Island, due to its profusion of excellent beaches.
Major cities in Denmark include the Danish Capital city of Copenhagen, a vibrant and cosmopolitan town, popular with short break tourists. Aarhus is the major city to be found upon the Jutland peninsula, as well as being the second largest city in Denmark, Notable for its charming old town area, and the excellent National Open Air Museum of Urban History.
Odense is the largest city upon the island of Funen, as well as being the third largest city in all of Denmark. Odense is the birthplace of famous children’s author Hands Christian Anderson.

Do you need to rent a car in Denmark?
One of the attractions of visiting Denmark is that distances between different areas are fairly short, so one minute you could be enjoying the shops in one of the busy and vibrant cities and yet make a short journey from there and you can be rewarded with clean, safe beaches and green lush forests. Although public transport is reasonably good, there is nothing better than having your own transport to get around and therefore hiring a car in Denmark is probably the best option.
