Denmark and its islands, as well as parts of northern Germany (below) and southern Sweden (upper right corner), appear dusted with snow in this image taken during the northern hemisphere winter.

Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe and the southernmost of the Nordic countries, southwest of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Denmark shares a border of 68 kilometres with Germany to the south and is otherwise surrounded by 7,314 kilometres of coastline. It occupies 43,094 square kilometres. Denmark borders both the Baltic and the North Sea.

The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland (upper left) and many islands, most notably Zealand (offshore of Sweden), Funen (center, offshore of Jutland), Vendsyssel-Thy, Lolland (below Zealand, closer to Germany), Falster (between Lolland and Zealand) and Bornholm, as well as hundreds of minor islands often referred to as the Danish Archipelago. All of these islands are best observed in the close-up.
