1. Denmark Culture - A Unique Blend Of Old Traditions And New Visions
Denmark culture means rich traditions and history as well as independance and sustainable wind power technology. An old kingdom with future visions.

In Denmark culture and tradition
is close to the heart
For people in Denmark culture is more than The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen, Danish pastry and Danish Design. Traditions are very important. People wouldn't perhaps admit this right away if you asked them on the street, but believe me.. they do care - a lot.
Part of the Denmark culture is also a friendliness towards guests and visitors. From my friends all over the world who have visited Copenhagen and Denmark, I keep hearing an appreciation for the friendly, excellent English speaking folks, with their own funny Danish language. In Denmark Danish is what you speak - not something you eat. As a foreigner the Danish language is perhaps not the easiest one to learn - but it is indeed possible. Our language even has countless dialects too..
Here are examples of what I consider Denmark culture - that you can read about on this page..

    Culture of Denmark
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search The Sydney Opera House designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon The Culture of Denmark has some general characteristics often associated with Danish society and everyday culture . Modesty, punctuality but above all equality are important aspects of the Danish way of life. Indeed, deliberate attempts to distinguish oneself from others may be viewed with hostility in line with Jante's Law , respected by some as an unofficial code of Scandinavian conduct. In Denmark, culture and the arts thrive as a result of the proportionately high amount of government funding they receive, much of which is administered by local authorities so as to involve citizens directly. Thanks to a system of grants, Danish artists are able to devote themselves to their work just as museums, theatres, and the film institute receive national support.
    edit "Hygge"
    Danish Christmas tree with homemade decorations One of the fundamental aspects of Danish culture is "hygge", which, although translated as "coziness" is more akin to "tranquility". Hygge is a complete absence of anything annoying, irritating, or emotionally overwhelming, and the presence of and pleasure from comforting, gentle, and soothing things. Hygge is often associated with family and close friends.

    Holidays in Denmark - A Guide to Denmark Local Customs
    Do you wish to go ahead and go on for a trip to Denmark? If you do, then the first thing you need to do is to look for a nice flight. You will have to pack up a certain number or suitcases too for this purpose. It is actually a pretty good idea to go ahead and learn something about the Danish culture as well, particularly a few of the popular Denmark local traditional stuff as well as some of the customs..
    One of the famous local Denmark customs that you are bound to make a note of is the manner in which the Danes go ahead and greet each other when they meet. The Danes first introduce themselves by their first name so that they ensure that you call them or you acknowledge them in the same manner. In Denmark it is much more acceptable to shake hands rather than to give each other a peck on the cheek, which might just be taken as a gesture way too intimate for people there. You should always remember that the Danes are people who acknowledge loud as well as passionate behavior in front of everybody, or in public as a type of disrespect, and hence will end up scolding you when they feel it is required. Hence, you must do your best in order to talk to them in not so loud or rather in moderate and preferably soft tones and if you express all of your intimate gestures only in places like private bars of some private places. Another really important thing is that you should not sit beside a stranger when you can help it while you are traveling through a public means of transportation. According to the Denmark local customs, this can be perceived as a sign of disrespect. In a similar way, do not go ahead and start any kind of conversation with a stranger. If a person from Denmark does end up talking to you, then in that case stick to the normal and safe subjects and do not go ahead and reveal too much about yourself or your personal issues. Remember that bragging is also something that is disapproved.

    Identification. Denmark is a small nation whose cultural unity is mitigated by regional traditions of rural, urban, and island communities with distinctions based on local language, food, and history. This situation has sometimes created friction between local history and national history. Denmark historically includes the former colonies Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Greenland gained home rule in 1979. In 1948, the Faroe Islands became a self-governing territory within the Danish state. Location and Geography. The kingdom of Denmark, which is situated in Scandinavia and northern Europe, is surrounded by the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat, and the Baltic Sea. The country covers approximately 16,634 square miles (43,095 square kilometers). Roughly eighty of its more than four hundred islands are inhabited. Jutland, Zealand, and Funen (Fyn) are the largest and most densely populated regions. There is a relative homogeneity in topography, with few areas at a high elevation. Since the sixteenth century, the capital has been Copenhagen, which is also the largest city. Demography.

    For more information on specific topics click the links below Amidst such tranquillity, it now almost seems surreal to consider that this country once spawned the Viking Warriors, feared throughout north-western Europe. Today, visitors to Denmark find a country that is peaceful, introspective, neutral and egalitarian. Its hallmarks are good taste, world-class design and uniformly high standards that apply equally to its accommodation and transport. Cuisine is excellent, especially in the realm of dairy products and scrumptious pastries. Add to this a people both amiable and helpful, with a facility for languages, and the result is an overwhelming sense of welcome. As the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, Denmark retains some of its fairytales atmosphere, alongside its cutting-edge modernity. Enchanting castles and historical rickety buildings are still frequent sights throughout Denmark. Copenhagen is a wonderful cobble-stoned city with many quaint medieval streets and buildings, but there is more to Denmark than its capital, and any visitor to the country will enjoy exploring elsewhere too.

    Denmark : Culture
    Denmark's valuable good heritage has made multifaceted contributions to modern culture the world over. The discoveries of astronomer Tycho Brahe, geologist and anatomist Niels Steensen, and contributions of Nobel laureates Niels Bohr to atomic physics and Niels Finsen to medical research suggest the range of Danish scientific achievement. Visitors to Denmark will discover a wealth of cultural activity. The Royal Danish Ballet, specializes in the work of the great Danish choreographer August Bournonville. International collections of modern art enjoy unusually attractive settings at the Louisiana Museum north of Copenhagen, "Arken" south of Copenhagen, and the North Jutland Art Museum in Aalborg. The State Museum of Art and the Glyptotek, both in Copenhagen, contain masterpieces of Danish and international art. Denmark's National Museum building in central Copenhagen harbors most of the state's anthropological and archeological treasures with particularly fine past history and Viking Age collections; two of its finest satellite collections are the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde west of the metropolis and the Open Air Museum in a near northern suburb where original buildings have been transported from their original locations around the nation and reassembled on plots specially landscaped to evoke the original site. Denmark has more than its share of impressive castles, many of which have been converted to museums. Frederiksborg Castle, on a manmade island in a lake north of Copenhagen, was restored after a catastrophic fire in the 1800s and now houses valuable collections in awe-inspiring splendor amidst impeccably manicured gardens. In Copenhagen, Rosenborg Castle houses the kingdom's crown jewels and boasts spectacular public gardens in the heart of the city.

    Denmark is situated on Northern Europe between he North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The country is bound on the north by the Skagerrak, a portion of the North Sea; on the east by the Kattegat (an extension of the Skagerrak) and a strait linking the Kattegat and the Baltic Sea; on the south by the Baltic Sea; and on the west by the North Sea. The word ‘Denmark’ appears as early as the Viking age, carved on the great Jelling Stone from the 900s, but there’s a huge difference between what ‘Denmark’ comprised then and what it comprises today. In some eras, for instance the 13th and 17th centuries, Denmark was a superpower whose influence was as massive as that of the largest European countries. Very bluntly speaking, it can be claimed that the present configuration of Denmark is the result of 400 years of forced relinquishments of land, surrenders and lost battles. Crucial events took place in the mid-1800s. In 1848, absolutism had been abolished, whereby Denmark got a constitution and a parliament, but in 1864 Denmark suffered a crushing defeat to Prussia in the second Schleswig war and had to relinquish 40% of its land. The Danish population dropped from 2.6 million to 1.6 million.
