Denmark, the most southern Scandinavian country, includes over 400 individual islands, most connected by bridges, and linked by an efficient ferry system.
The Jutland Peninsula and the entire country is mostly low, flat land, averaging only 100 ft. (300m) above sea level.
Denmark is known worldwide for its dairy, livestock and commercial fishing industries, and for trend-setting wind-turbine electricity generators. Denmark invested overseas in the industry which resulted in international relocation of families. International moving companies help in the process.
Tourism thrives in Denmark, especially in Copenhagen, a stylish city of museums, nitelife and fabulous shopping. Legoland Park and Tivoli are magnets for children of all ages.
