Difference between accents: German, English, Spanish

What are the most notable differences between how native German speakers, English speakers, and Spanish speakers speak Danish?

I couldn't pinpoint them exactly, but I can always tell if it's a native English speaker speaking Danish. Anyway, it's nigh impossible for anyone (all non-Scandinavians) to speak Danish without an accent just as it is impossible for almost every Dane to let go of that accent when they speak other languages. The best at letting go of accent seems to be Faroese followed by Greenlanders and Icelanders, but they do learn it in school from early age.
