Mild climate with few showers – perfect cycling tour conditions
Denmark is blessed with a mild climate due to its special location between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, which both regulate the climate. This rather flat country is prone to little rainfall compared with other Central European countries – the amount of rainfall is about 10% below the German average. This together with moderate temperatures, ranging from 2 degrees in winter to 20 degrees at midsummer, is just as pleasant for a cycling holiday. In addition the flat terrain facilitates optimal conditions for a comfortable tour between larger towns: the highest mountain of the land boasts an altitude of just 170m. This fact sparked an intense discussion in Denmark over decades, appearing slightly strange from the outside, whether and to what extent barrows and other man-made mounds could be considered 'natural’ elevations.
