Denmark is to the north of Germany. Denmark is considered to be one of the four Nordic countries of Europe (the others being Norway, Sweden and Iceland). It is the southernmost of these, lying southwest of Sweden, and south of Norway (Iceland is far off in the North Atlantic). It is bordered to …the south by Germany. The Baltic Sea lies to the east of Denmark and the North Sea lies to the west. The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland (aka Jylland), and many islands; the largest are Zealand (aka SjÃ¦lland), Funen (aka Fyn), Vendsyssel-Thy (although this is sometimes lumped with Jutland), Lolland, Falster, and Bornholm. A hundred or so minor islands making up the "Danish Archipelago" lie around Jutland in the North Sea and Baltic Sea and are part of Denmark. Greenland could also be considered part of Denmark although it is now an autonomous country with Denmark only exercising control in foreign relations. Greenland, of course, is located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago of North America and is categorized as part of North America. DENMARK is a country in Northern Europe. (MORE)
Germany is the only country that borders Denmark by land on the south. It is surrounded on three sides, west, north and east by the North Sea and the Baltic Sea which meet at some point.

Denmark does not have a president as it is a constitutional monarchy. Our queen is Queen Margrethe II and our prime minister is Lars LÃ¸kke Rasmussen.
Denmark exports bacon,butter and fish i am not sure what else there are more but you should check on the internet proberly on wikipedia
It is a monarchy, so they have a prime minister, not a president. As of right now it is Lars LÃ¸kke Rasmussen. Denmark doesnt have one. It is a monarchy. It has a king.
Well see Denmark invented stuff like the toothpick, wind electricity (dont ask where they got that idea from), the freezer and fridge and last but certainly not least the first closable envolope!!. This answer was posted by Jordan
No, absolutely no problems (= risk factors) one should consider when going to Denmark. You may have heard/read about gang wars during the summer 2009 (turf wars between Hell's Angels and Immigrant gangs), but they have stopped shooting in the streets(!) and it was only in very limited areas anyway. …So unles your business is exactly drugs, then there is no reason to worry :-) (MORE)
It's not a continent, it's a country technically in northern Europe but more usually associated with Scandinavia.
If you want info on 'imortant' people in Denmark, you need to consult the book 'Kraks BlÃ¥ bog', which corresponds to 'Who's who' in the English language world. Published by Gads Forlag.
It would depend on where you are starting from. It is possible toget to Denmark in lots of ways, by air, sea and land.
Judging from the souvenir shops it is still little figurines resembling the Status of the little mermaid. For kids is gotta be Lego toys.
If we are talking WWII then the motive was to use airfields in Northen Denmark as a stepping stone for the invasion of Norway (which in turn was invaded to control the Northern Atlantic)
In denmark we have a temperate climate, that means that in winter it is cold, and in the summer it is hot, but it also rains a lot etc. I don't know how accurate my explanation is, but then look it up! (Temperate climate) And right now, it rains in denmark. Which sucks!
To my knowledge there is no prison called Denmark, it is however a country in Scandinavia, Europe
Denmark has about 7300 kilometers of coastline and nowhere in the country are you more than 52 kilometers from the coast.
Denmark is a flat country, the highest point being around 200 metres (600 feet) above sea level. Most of Denmark's geography was created by glaciers and them melting some 10'000 years ago. Roughly speaking this means that the eastern parts are filled with huge rocks that the glaciers could carry ar…ound, but the western parts consist of clay, mud and other small particles, that the melting water, having lost all its force, could still carry around. Denmark is located north of Germany in time zone +1:00 (MORE)

Northern part of Europe, just above Germany, part of Scandanavia, next to Sweden and UK, south of Norway
I don't really know what you mean about emblem, but Denmarks flag is read with a white cross, and it is also the oldest flag in the world. On Denmarks 10 kr. and 20 kr. coins, they have their queen on them, but Denmark couldn't care less about it. Denmark doesn't have any kind of symbol, like C…anada has a beaver or something. (MORE)
Denmark doesn't have a mayor, each municipalities has a mayor. The name is Prime Minister, and he rules the country. Of course not alone, we have democracy in Denmark. And he gets switched out every fourth year.
If you mean Population, then Denamark has 5.540.241 people (estimated the 1. of April 2010).
Yes! Denmark has several princes. Three of them are adults and married. . Prins Consort Henrik (married to the queen) . Crown Prince Frederik . Prins Christian . Prince Joachim . Prince Nikolai . Prince Felix . Prince Henrik
No it's the other way round. The Vikings (Scandanavian Soldiers) came from Sweden, Denmark and Norway, so that three countries join up to make a bigger country called Scandanavia. Hope my info helped:)
Denmark wasn't discovered in the same way as perhaps America. There is no danish equivalent to Christopher Colombus. Denmark was probably discovered some 10'000 years ago when the glaciers of the last ice age melted away and the land could be inhabited. Tribes of hunters probably wandered into Den…mark in search of prey, and humans have lived there ever since. There might have been humans in Denmark before the ice age, but they would have been driven out by the glaciers. (MORE)

1 american dollar is currently worth 5.56 Danske Kroner (danish crowns, DKK). Denmark usually tries to fit the value of DKK to euro, so that 1 DKK at any time is worth around 7.5 euro.
In Denmark Santa Claus is called Julemanden ('The Christmas Man'; 'jul' is the christmas holiday, 'manden' means 'the man'). He is believed to live in Greenland, a danish colony, and the stories about him are identical to those about Santa Claus.
I kinda like it but the food isn't good! The reference to Denmark having an odor is probably just an idiom.
The most prominent religion is Evangelical Lutheran, but there are so many other religions in Denmark. You can find Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Wiccans, etc.
I don't know if you can say that... We hold Christmas every year, birthdays, midsummers day/eve and new year, but that's about it. And if we miss one of those holidays, we don't really care. So my answer would be no.
No, we don't have elks in Denmark. Occaisionally an elk somehow makes it over the strait between Denmark and Sweden, but they are not indigenous to Denmark.
Most danes believe that it means Dan's Field, Den being derived from Dan, the name of an early king; and mark meaning a field in Danish. However there are a plethora of theories (see the Sources and relate links section, below).
The currency of Denmark is the Danish krone. The Danish krone is pegged with the Euro, but is a sovereign currency.
No, Denmark is in Europe north of Germany. However, the danish constitutional country of Greenland is northeast of Canada.
The language of Denmark is danish. Danish is a language unique to Denmark, however other Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway) have languages that are so similar to danish, that it is possible to have a conversation without having actually learned the other language. Danish has a Teutonic heritage and …has influenced english language, mostly regarding to place names in england, but also regarding to some words like brother (broder), sister (sÃ¸ster), wind (vind), and so on. Though danish is the national language almost every Dane can speak english as well, and all children are taught german, french or spanish in school. (MORE)
The most unique food in Denmark is the rye bread. Compared to white bread it is very coarse and highly nutritious, though many foreigners experience as a dry, boring kind of bread. Rye bread is also a main ingredient in a danish national food, smÃ¸rrebrÃ¸d ('buttered bread', also known as the op…en sandwich), where a single slice of bread is topped of with several kinds of spreads, spices, meats, and so on. An example could be (from the bottom): Bread, pickled herring, creme fraiche, apple pieces, onion rings and curry. There is a huge variety of smÃ¸rrebrÃ¸d, and each of them a unique taste experience. Popular foods in Denmark include potatoes, various meats (chicken, cow, pig, fish) and sausages. However, foreign foods are also highly appreciated. Furthermore, Denmark has a history of using cabbage in many of its dishes. (MORE)

We have a constitutional monarchy, meaning we have a queen who signs the law. We have two leading parties in Denmark, Venstre (conservative) and Socialistisk Folkeparti (socialists). The Prime Minister in Denmark is Helle Thorning Smith, the leader of Socialistisk Folkeparti.
