Despite its relatively small land area and population (just over 5m), Denmark is a remarkably diverse country occupying part of mainland Europe, two large and several smaller islands. The Faroe Island and Greenland are also part of the Danish Kingdom.
The largest land area, where Kolding is situated, is Jutland – connected to mainland Europe by its border with Northern Germany. The second largest city, Århus (pop 250,000), is in the middle of Jutland about one hour north of Kolding. Denmark’s most populated area (more than 1m) is in and around the capital Copenhagen, situated on the island of Zealand towards the east of the country.
The third city, Odense (pop 250,000), is in the second of the large islands, Funen, between Jutland and Zealand. Denmark’s two large islands are nowadays connected to Jutland and mainland Europe by the Little Belt Bridge between Jutland and
Funen and the Great Belt Bridge between Funen and Zealand.
Therefore it is possible to travel throughout Denmark by road and rail and indeed to the rest of continental Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway and Finland) via another large bridge connecting Copenhagen with Malmö in Sweden. It is very easy to travel to and within Denmark by road, rail, air or sea.
