| The area of Jutland
comprises the greater part of Denmark, extending 400km (250 miles)
from the German border to its northernmost tip. Jutland’s
west coast has superb sandy beaches but bathing there is, often
unsafe, due to the changing winds and tides. Extreme care should
be exercised, and any advice or notices issued by local authorities
should be heeded. The major port of Esbjerg is located in Jutland
and receives daily ferries from the UK. Main towns and resorts include
Aalborg, Århus, Esbjerg, Frederikshavn, Holstebro,
Kolding, Randers, Silkeborg, Vejle and Viborg.

Fanø are also historically interesting and
