Where does the sun rise in Denmark?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Denmark is Nexø in the region of Hovedstaden. There, the sun rises at 7:04 am and sets at 6:32 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Hvide Sande (Central Jutland) at 7:00 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Copenhagen lies on the 56th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Denmark this period averages 84 minutes. In June, it's about 122 minutes in Copenhagen, while in December it's 46 minutes.
