Region Zealand[3] (Danish: Region Sjælland) is the southernmost administrative region of Denmark, established on January 1, 2007 as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform, which abolished the traditional counties ("amter") and set up five larger regions. Zealand Region has 17 municipalities.

Overview[]

Zealand Region consists of the former counties of Roskilde, Storstrøm, and Vestsjælland.

The region is named after the island of Sjælland (Zealand), which it shares with the neighbouring Danish Capital Region. Region Zealand (Region Sjælland) also includes the adjacent islands of Lolland, Falster, and Møn.

Economy[]

The Gross domestic product (GDP) of the region was 29.9 billion € in 2018, accounting for 9.9% of Denmarks economic output. GDP per capita adjusted for purchasing power was 26,800 € or 89% of the EU27 average in the same year.[4]
