Cycling Europe by Bike
Introduction to Denmark
Delicately balanced between Scandinavia proper and mainland Europe, Denmark is a difficult country to pin down. In many ways it shares the characteristics of both regions: it's an EU member, and has prices and drinking laws that are broadly in line with the rest of Europe. But Danish social policies and style of government are distinctly Scandinavian: social benefits and the standard of living are high, and its politics are very much that of the consensus.
While Denmark is the easiest Scandinavian country in which to travel – both in terms of cost and distance – the landscape itself is the region's least dramatic: largely green, flat, farmland punctuated by innumerable fairytale half-timbered villages, with surprisingly few urban settlements. Apart from a scattering of small islands, the country is made up of three main landmasses – the islands of Zealand and Funen and the peninsula of Jutland, which extends northwards from Germany.
