Visit Denmark’s southernmost point
Follow the shore down to Denmark’s southernmost point, Gedser Odde; it is a nice walk or bicycle trip of about 5 km through the city and along the coastline. At the tip you’ll find a nice little museum where you can learn more about the area, and shop for locally produced art. In the middle of the courtyard there you’ll see the famous rock called Sydstenen, which is believed to be more than 1 billion years old; it came to Denmark all the way from Sweden during the last Ice Age.
If you enjoy birds and nature, then Gedser is the perfect destination, as it is a hotspot for both migratory and resident birds, and you might get lucky and encounter some very rare species. Read more on Gedser bird station’s homepage (only available in Danish).
