About Denmark

Denmark is a small country in Scandinavia, covering 43,000 square kilometres. It is surrounded by a white sandy coast line, and strewn with picturesque small towns and villages.

Many of the coast cities have great opportunities for various water sports, such as kite surfing, diving, snorkelling and kayak racing. With its Southern boarders to Northern Germany, and its other close neighbours to its East-side, Sweden and Norway, all can easily be accessed by both ferry and car. From Aalborg Airport, the world is only one stop away, and even more destinations can be reached from the national airport in Copenhagen.

Denmark is the oldest monarchy in the world and its history can be traced back to Gorm the Old (Gorm den Gamle), in year 958. Today, it is a constitutional monarchy, which represents the Danish industries and business around the world. The regent, HM The Queen Margrethe, acceded to the throne in 1972 and became the first female regent in Danish history.
