As you probably already know Denmark is a small Scandinavian country consisting of the mainland, Jutland, and additional 72 inhabited islands, but to be honest only a few of them are worth a visit.
Denmark has about 5.5 million inhabitants give or take and is according to a bunch of surveys the home of the happiest people on earth. It is also the home of the famous writer Hans Christian Andersen, Northern Europe´s biggest culture and music festival, Roskilde Festival, and we may or may not get our big appetite for pork and beer from our viking forefathers.
The largest city in Denmark is also the country´s capital, Copenhagen. Here you will find the largest gay scene in the country. If you are looking for something a bit more quiet and less hectic, the cities of Aarhus and Odense might be more appropriate for you, but please note that the gay scenes in these cities are limited – especially in Odense.
Denmark differs from the rest of the Scandinavian countries in the sense that it is extremely flat, with practically no mountains at all to speak of. So don’t bring your skis to Denmark unless you are visiting during Winter and also plan a trip to the north of Sweden or Norway.
Denmark is directly connected to mainland Europe as the country´s western part, Jutland, which is also the country´s largest part, borders up to Germany.
The capital city of Copenhagen is located in the eastern part of Denmark, on its largest island, Zealand, and is easily accessible by boat, car, train and of course flight. If you are up for a quick trip to the land of the blonde and beautiful, Sweden, Malmö is only a 30 minutes train ride away from Copenhagen.
