This is a collection of Sandalsand’s pictures from Denmark. They are from trips to different parts of the country – Copenhagen, Jutland and the Faroes. 

If you look up my articles from Denmark, you will also find a World Heritage Site and regular travelogues. I have omitted several trips to Denmark over the years. Before anything else, start with these pictures from Denmark.

This gallery represents my impressions from a full day in Copenhagen, on foot and on a canal boat.

A number of images from different parts of the semi-autonomous archipelago in the North Atlantic ocean: Torshavn, Kirkjubøur, Streymey, Vágar, Eysteroy, Borðoy and Viðoy to mention some places and islands.

Pictures from the Danish capital of Copenhagen, the town of Helsingør and from the World Heritage Site of Kronborg Castle.

Images from a summer vacation in Jylland or Jutland as it is called in English. Various places are represented.

This gallery is one of four with photos from a four week Interrail in Continental Europe. This picture gallery covers Denmark.

Fast facts

Learn about Denmark on Wikipedia. Here is an excerpt:

Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It is the most populous and politically central constituent of the Kingdom of Denmark, a constitutionally unitary state that includes the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Spanning a total area of 42,943 km2, it consists of the peninsula of Jutland and also an archipelago of 443 named islands, of which the largest are Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. Denmark’s geography is characterised by flat, arable land, sandy coasts, low elevation, in addition to a temperate climate. As of 2022, it had a population of 5.87 million, of which 800,000 live in the capital and largest city, Copenhagen. Denmark exercises hegemonic influence in the Danish Realm, devolving powers to handle internal affairs. They established home rule in the Faroe Islands in 1948 and in Greenland in 1979; the latter obtained further autonomy in 2009.

An industrialised exporter of agricultural produce in the second half of the 19th century, Denmark introduced social and labour-market reforms in the early 20th century, which formed the basis for the present welfare state model and advanced mixed economy.

Denmark is a highly developed country whose citizens enjoy a high standard of living. The country performs at or near the top in measures of education, health care, civil liberties, democratic governance and LGBT equality. Denmark is a founding member of NATO, the Nordic Council, the OECD, OSCE, and the United Nations; it is also part of the Schengen Area. Denmark maintains close political, cultural, and linguistic ties with its Scandinavian neighbours. The Danish language is mutually intelligible with both Norwegian and Swedish.
