Copenhagen Countryside

The islands Zealand, Møn and Lolland-Falster - a perfect holiday combination

Meet the vikings on Zealand

Denmark is the historical and spiritual home of the Vikings. Danish ancestors explored, settled, traded, and plundered far and wide across the world during the period of history known as the Viking Age. Once feared in Europe for their raiding and pillaging, today's Vikings are a peaceful bunch who have long since traded in their longships for bicycles. But if you want to get a taste of the old Viking culture and way of life, come to Zealand!

Local produce and outdoor living on Møn

The primary reason to go to the island of Møn is to enjoy its wild, majestic nature - the white cliffs, rising vertically from the green Baltic Sea, natural forests, miles of long beaches, and rolling hills. The perfect base for active outdoor tourism such as biking, hiking, horseback riding, angling and sailing.

Møn has a rich cultural history, with Stone Age mounds, world-class church frescoes and the romantic Liselund Park. A wide range of art and crafts and local produce. Exciting localities such as the village of Nyord and the fishing town of Klintholm Havn. The capital Stege is both a historical (medieval) and a very contemporary town, with an active urban life.

Møn offers all kinds of accommodation. The most popular are holiday homes and camping, but you can also find quality hotels and lots of charming B&B’s.

Møn is well-known for active tourism development. The new hiking route ‘the Camøno’ is a giant success. Møn has been nominated a Unesco Biosphere and a Dark Sky Park – both firsts in Denmark. A perfect base for the continuing development of Møn's uniqueness: Sustainable Tourism.

Manor houses on Lolland-Falster

Lolland-Falster is known for its many manor houses and its high-quality food, sustainability, hunting and sugar production. Lolland-Falster is the name for Denmark's entire south coast, stretching from the country's southernmost point, Gedser, with its gripping Cold War history, very beautiful bathing beaches and picturesque medieval towns, to Nakskov Fjord, which boasts the largest concentration of islands among Denmark's bays.

Artists have always been attracted to settle on Lolland-Falster. So you will have the opportunity of visiting galleries and experiencing art in the open countryside, as well as exploring interesting museums such as the Fuglsang Museum of Modern Art. The museum is also the home to the Storstrøms Chamber Ensemble. Do not miss the Dodekalitten, stone sculptures 10-12 metres high dotted around a beautiful area in the countryside, where you can also take in the lovely view of the small islands north of Lolland.
