Information gathered from:
Denmark is one of the flattest countries in Europe, with an average altitude of only 35 metres above sea level. One third of it is made up of islands, the rest, Jutland, is part of the European mainland. Summers are warm and rainy, winters very cold. Agriculture, especially meat products, fishing and shipping are important elements of the economy.
