River Elbe by Base of Jutland Peninsula, Denmark and Germany55.3N 9.5E
Denmark is the southernmost of the Nordic countries, southwest of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.
In Germany, near the base of the peninsula, one can see the River Elbe, spilling brown sediments into the North Sea. Denmark borders both the Baltic and the North Sea.
Denmark consists of a large peninsula, Jutland (Jylland) and many islands. The largest islands include Funen (left) and Zealand (right), visible to the east of the peninsula.
