Scandanavian landforms

For the most part Denmark consists of flat lands with very little elevation, except for the hilly central area on the Jutland Peninsula.

Its average height above sea level is only 31 meters (101 feet) and the highest natural point is Mollehoj, at 170.86 meters (560.6 ft).

Denmark's lowest point is Lammefjord, at 7 meters below sea level. The coastline is indented by many fjords, with LimFjord (in the north) the largest.

In addition to the Jutland Peninsula, the country includes over 440 named islands; Zealand is the largest, followed by Funen, Lolland, Falster and Bornholm, an island located in the Baltic Sea to the east of Zealand.

The country is drained by a dozen or so rivers, and the most significant include the Guden, Odense, Skjern, Stora, Susa and Vida - a river that flows along its southern border with Germany.

The longest river in Denmark is the Guden at 160 km (99 miles).
