The Danish rural landscape offers fresh, green grass and lush forests as far and wide as the eye can see all year round. But it comes with a price. Denmark is one of Europe's wettest climates. Rain falls regularly, and there is no reliable dry season. The best chances for sun and blue skies lie in June and July. But be sure to carry a rain poncho or an umbrella just in case.
Denmark consists of more than 1,400 islands and a single peninsula, Jylland. The middle of Jylland receives the most rain. Coastal areas are not as wet as centrally located areas. Since Jylland is Denmark's largest land area and closest to the mainland, this is where the rain falls the most.
Summer in Denmark might be wet and humid, but the days are long and sunny. During winter the sun rises at 9 in the morning and sets in the afternoon, but in the summer, the days last from 5 in the morning till 10 at night.
As such, most events in Denmark take place during the summer, like the Danes love festivals and outdoor concerts. The biggest summer event in Denmark is the Roskilde Festival - Europe's second-largest festival, with more than 130,000 guests attending every year.
