Arrival in Copenhagen
Individual arrival in Copenhagen. The Danish capital has a lot to offer. We recommend that you arrive early. Stroll through the historic city centre, eat and drink at the famous Nyhavn with its coloured buildings and cosy terraces or visit the famous amusement park Tivoli. In the evening personal greeting and handover of bicycles.
Most of the leg of your first day will take you along the so-called Køge Bay, always with a beautiful view of the Baltic Sea. The landscape of the completely car-free Amager Fælled National Park will impress you, and those interested in art should make sure to visit the Museum of Modern Art. Køge, a medieval town with colourfully painted houses, is one of Denmark's oldest towns and is located right on the coast. The white sand beaches invite you to take a refreshing dip in the cool water.
Today it's time to say goodbye to the coast. The route takes you inland and you cross South Zealand. A wonderful green landscape always surrounds you with vast meadows and forests. The medieval townscape of Næstved with its old mansions is ideal for a stroll. Or you can take a short trip to Rococo Gavnø Castle.
Today you cycle further west and the Great Belt. You will soon reach the small coastal town of Karrebæksminde. If you are a wine lover, be sure to visit the Vesterhavegaarden Vingaard, a winery that gives guided tours through the vineyards. Sip a glass with rural views and sample the apple ice wine, apple cider amarone style red wine and chardonnay. The lovely sandy beach of Enø invites you to sunbathe or take a refreshing dip. From now on you will follow the coast and reach today's destination, Korsør via the harbor town of Skælskør. The cozy harbor town offers a varied and lively cultural life or visit the Korsør By og Overfartsmuseum.
There should be a short stop in Trelleborg on today's cycle route. A huge ringfort built around 900 AD with a modern museum tells you about the life and culture of the Viking age. When you arrive in Sorø, the monastery is also well worth a visit. The old 12th-century abbey church is modelled on the Cistercian abbey of Fontenay. In Sorø you will also find several museums and beautiful churches.
Today you will again be guided through green meadows and small, enchanting villages. You can reach the town of the same name via the Isefjord and Roskilde beach. From the 10th century to about 1400 Roskilde was the capital of Denmark and it got the Domkirke. This Roskilde cathedral welcomes you from afar. Since the early 15th century, the cathedral has been the favourite burial place of the Danish royal family and since 1995 it has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Viking Ship Museum (Vikingeskibsmuseet) is also worth a visit.
The last stage takes you back to the starting point of your cycling tour, the Danish capital Copenhagen. From Albertslund there is a recently constructed cycle path that leads you to the centre almost without traffic. In the afternoon there is still enough time to explore the city. Cycle to the Rosenborg Palace with the crown jewels of the royal family, paintings and other objects from history or visit the Carlsberg Brewery for a Carlsberg Beer Experience learn all about this beer brand dating from 1847. During a walk, you can look back on all the beautiful impressions of your cycling tour through Seeland.
