Geography and Climate
Denmark is a Nordic country located in Northern Europe.  It consists of the Jutland peninsula and several islands in the Baltic sea, referred to as the Danish Archipelago.  Denmark is located southwest of Sweden and due south of Norway and is bordered by the German state Schleswig-Holstein to the south, on Denmark's only land border, 68 kilometres long.

Denmark experiences a temperate climate.  This means that the winters are mild and windy and the summers are cool.  The local terrain is generally flat with a few gently rolling plains.  Because of Denmark's northern location, there are large seasonal variations in daylight.  There are short days during the winter with sunrise coming around 8:45 am and sunset 3:45pm, as well as long summer days with sunrise at 4:30 am and sunset at 10 pm.

Soil types
Soils in Denmark are of glacial origin (moraines) and consist mainly of the soil types loamy sand, sandy loam and sand. Many locations have a considerable amount of stones included.
