Denmark extends temporary border controls

The Danish government on Monday extended its temporary border controls on the German-Danish border for the sixth time since introducing them at the start of January.


The new extension means that the controls at the Danish border with Germany will remain in place for another 30 days until June 2.

“It must be noted that there is still considerable pressure on Europe’s borders, and that migrants and refugees will find alternative routes when the borders are closed,” said Danish Integration Minister Inger Stoejberg.

Denmark is a country comprising the Jutland peninsula and its offshore islands, linking Northern Europe and Scandinavia via the Öresund bridge.

On Zealand, the capital, Copenhagen is home to the rococo Frederiksstaden district and its royal palaces, Tivoli pleasure gardens and the “Little Mermaid” statue.

On neighboring Funen is Odense, storyteller Hans Christian Andersen’s hometown, with a medieval core of cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses. Enditem
