Arrive on your own. One of the most beautiful medieval market squares and Denmark's oldest town hall awaits you in Køge. In front of the city, beautiful white sandy beaches invite you to swim or dream.
You cycle straight through the green south of Zealand through forest, meadows and fields in which truly stately mansions are nestled. Look forward to Naestved on the west coast, it is one of the oldest towns in Denmark. The pretty town's distinctive red brick tells you that Næstved was at its peak during the Hanseatic League. Take a trip to the island of Gavnø, where there is a rococo castle worth seeing. Marvel at the well-known tulip cultivation in the castle park, the butterfly house and the magnificent picture gallery in the castle.
Today you cycle along the coast to the Great Belt, the strait between the Baltic Sea and the Kattegat. Look forward to a stopover in Karrebæksminde, a small bustling resort with a beautiful sandy beach. Marvel at the historic iron bascule bridge, which is well worth seeing, and be sure to try the freshly smoked fish in the harbour, a real delicacy. In the afternoon stroll through Korsør. Visit the remains of the old city fortifications, the royal court and marvel at the 18-kilometer-long bridge over the Great Belt. The journey then continues inland to your next stage inland.
Today you cycle to the coasts and fjords at Roskilde. First to the Iselfjord and then on to the Roskildefjord. Look forward to Roskilde. Be sure to visit the cathedral, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. It is the final resting place of 20 Danish kings and 17 queens. The gilded Antwerp reredos and the ornately carved choir stalls from 1420 are among the most precious pieces of the rich interior of the cathedral.
Today's stage takes you to the Danish capital. Copenhagen is a pocket-sized cosmopolitan city. Here you can reach all sights in a short distance. Visit the Round Tower, Europe's oldest observatory, stroll through the waterfront with its gabled houses and the Little Mermaid, visit Rosenborg Castle and Amalienborg, where the Danish royal family resided, and have fun at Tivoli, the most famous amusement park in Europe.
Today belongs to Copenhagen and its sights. Discover the Danish capital by bike, which is certainly the No. 1 means of transport here and has an excellently developed network of cycle paths. If you don't want to cycle, take a stroll to Nyhavn to see the little mermaid and stroll along the Stroget shopping street or visit the Tivoli amusement park today.
