Denmark - Fragment Map of Jylland

Fragment Map of Jylland in Denmark.

Sent by Inga from Denmark. Terima kasih.

This is from Wikipedia : Jutland (/ˈdʒʌtlənd/; Danish: Jylland; German: Jütland, Danish: [ˈjyl.anʔ]), historically also called Cimbria, is the name of the peninsula that juts out in Northern Europe toward the rest of Scandinavia, forming the mainland part of Denmark. It has the North Sea to its west, Kattegat and Skagerrak to its north, the Baltic Sea to its east, and the Danish–German border to its south. The German state of Schleswig-Holstein is part of the Cimbrian Peninsula but not part of Jutland.

Today, the Danish parts of Jutland belong to either of the three administrative regions North Jutland, Central Jutland or Region of Southern Denmark. The German parts of Jutland peninsula today form the state of Schleswig-Holstein and the city of Hamburg.
