Denmark by Air

Yan Nielsen

Take an aerial tour of the Scandinavian country Denmark in this remarkable drone video by contributor and drone pilot Yan Nielsen.  Denmark is the smallest of the mainland Nordic countries by land area, but in population it's second only to Sweden.  While the video features footage from across the country, most of the focus is on the capital city Copenhagen.  The city is built on the island of Zeeland on the Strait of Øresund, a narrow waterway which is one of the four routes between the Baltic and North Seas.

Navigating between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea involves passing near various points on the coast of Denmark, and the going can be treacherous due to winds, currents, and narrow passageways, in addition to heavy shipping traffic.  In this video, contributor Magnus Bo Hansen used a drone to create a bird's eye view of the Rujberg Knude lighthouse, which sits atop a 60 m (200 ft) cliff overlooking the North Sea near the northern tip of the country.   It's one of the most well known lighthouses in Europe.

Contributor Hittheroadlat used his drone to create a stunning video of the Kastellet fortress in Copenhagen, Denmark's largest and capital city.  The fortification was initially completed in 1626 and later further strengthened during the course of the country's long periods of conflict with its neighbor Sweden.  It's considered one of the better preserved examples of the star-shaped or bastion fortress, an early-modern design which evolved as a defensive response to improved artillery technology.

LarsBülow created this impressive drone video of Hammershus Castle, probably the most famous castle in Scandinavia.  It's situated on the island of Bornholm, a Danish island lying to the east of the mainland in the Baltic Sea.  The castle was built in the 13th century, and played an important role in the struggles between Denmark and its rivals in the region.  Classified as a ruin (although partially restored in the early 1900's), it's believed to be the largest medieval-era castle in Europe.

Denmark occupies a strategic position in Europe by virtue of its location between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.  For this reason, it was one of the first countries to be occupied by Nazi Germany near the outset of World War II, beginning in April of 1940.  While the country did not see significant fighting, its defenses were heavily fortified by Germany during the occupation.  In this video, contributor MStone gives us a drone's-eye view of bunkers built by the Nazis to protect against Allied amphibious landings.

It is difficult to comprehend the immensity of Greenland, the massive Danish controlled island in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Covering a massive land area of nearly 2.2 million square km (836k square mi), the world's largest island is more than double the size of the second largest (THE tropical island of New Guinea) and roughly 6x the land area of Germany.  Top contributor Daniel Kordan used a drone to create this stunning visual tour of the island, replete with giant icebergs and shimmering glaciers.

In this Drone Video of the Week nominated video by DroneDirector, you'll get an aerial tour from the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.  Consisting of 18 main islands, the archipelago is known for its rugged, largely untouched terrain and sub polar oceanic climate, meaning it is frequently windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. This video covers three of the group's 18 islands: Eysturoy, the second largest of the islands; Streymoy, the largest and most populated island; and Vagar, the most westerly of the islands.

Hit the road with contributor Boyanoo and his travel buddy, @Kaptain.kenny, on their aerial adventure through the Faroe Islands. Cruising through roads that wind between the Danish island's sea towns, tight sounds, and craggy mountains, and mind-blowing rock formations along its coasts, the sights seen from above completely arrest the viewer's attention. Similar yet quite distinct from Iceland (to which the Faroes are often compared), there's nothing else quite like them on Earth.

Denmark's limestone cliffs of Møns are in a league with England's chalk cliffs of Dover, albeit less well known.  Situated in the Baltic Sea, Møns is one of Denmark's largest islands.  The famous limestone cliffs are technically called Møns Klint, which is a 6m (4 mi.) stretch of coastline on the eastern side of the island.  They are one of the reasons why the island has been designated as the first UNESCO biosphere reserve.  You can see these magnificent cliffs in this drone video by contributor morten.

Top contributor DroneDirector created this stunning drone video of Bornholm, one of the most important islands of the Baltic Sea.  Fought over for centuries, it's a territory of Denmark, but it lies well to the east of the mainland and is actually closer to Poland.  It is perhaps best known for the enormous Hammershus Castle on its southern coast; seen in the video, it's the largest fortress in northern Europe and testament to the island's historical strategic importance covering the Baltic's sole outlet.
