Individual arrival in Køge. The city is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Denmark. It was built by royal order with the largest market place in the region, where trade of all kinds and large jousting tournaments took place.In Kirkestraede you will find the oldest half-timbered house in Denmark, from 1527.
Today you cycle north on beautiful paths, mostly along the bay, to Copenhagen. With a history that goes back to the year 1043, the metropolis will captivate you with its many historic landmarks and important buildings. Visit the more than 100-year-old amusement park Tivoli and the 1.25 m tall statue of the famous mermaid, the city's most recognizable symbol. Plan a walk through the Strøget shopping street, which is one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe at over 1 km long, and stroll along the "Nyhavn", where ships from all over the world used to dock. Today the beautiful old houses there have all been renovated and fine restaurants dominate the old harbour. You can easily return to Køge by train (on your own).
Today's cycling day begins with a train ride to Copenhagen before cycling north through the former hunting grounds of the Danish kings at Dyrehaven in Klampenborg. Let yourself be enchanted by idyllic landscapes and deep forests before you reach the coast again. Enjoy rolling to Helsingbørg, always accompanied by beautiful beaches that invite you to take a dip in the cool water. Visit Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe. More fortress than castle, Kronborg is famous the world over for being the setting of Shakespeare's drama Hamlet. But the old port city has much more to offer. Allow plenty of time before a leisurely (own-arranged) train ride back to Køge.
On completely car-free paths, you cycle today partly along the bay, partly inland to Roskilde, steeped in history, whose cathedral can be seen from afar. Roskilde was once a royal town and played an important role in Denmark's history. Visit the magnificent red brick cathedral with its slender spires, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. The sarcophagi and tombs, where 38 Danish kings and queens found their final resting place, make the church something special. After a worthwhile break, you then either return to Køge by train (on your own) or use the extensive network of cycle paths and cycle back to the hotel (89 km).
Today is at your free disposal. Use the time for a relaxing day at the beach or take a leisurely stroll through one of Denmark's most beautiful half-timbered towns. Enjoy your stay - the city exudes a lot of flair and is often used as a film set.
Today a spectacular natural phenomenon lures, the cliffs of Stevns Klint. The massive rock formations belong to the UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the unique "fish tone", which provides the key to the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. The breathtaking chalk coast can be hiked along the entire length. On a clear day you can watch the ships sailing towards Øresund from here. You can take the train from Rødvig back to Köge (on your own).
After breakfast, your wonderful cycle tour through the Copenhagen area comes to an end. If you want to extend the trip, we will be happy to help you.
