The regions of Denmark were established in 2007 with the Danish Municipal Reform in Denmark. With this reform, the number of municipalities in Denmark has been reduced from 270 to 98.

Between 1970 and 2006, there were counties in Denmark. Unlike counties, regions do not have coat of arms, but they have logotype.

According to the municipal reform in 2007, Denmark has a total of five regions. In this article, we will get some general information about these regions. You can also see Denmark’s territories on the map below.
