Falster is a relatively flat island with a landscape that varies from open fields to thick forests, and with a large number of good sand beaches.
Falster offers a lot of opportunities to enjoy an active holiday outdoors. You will find many places offering horseback trips e.g. through the forests on special tracks for horseback riding or at Sønder Kohave in Nykøbing Falster, an old forest with some of its trees more than 200 years old. Falster also offers a lot of good fishing spots. Take a trip along the coasts and try your luck at catching garfish, trout and cod or go for the more safe approach and visit one of the many Put and Take lakes. Since Falster is a flat island, exploring the area on bicycles is an obvious choice, and bike rentals are found in many places.
Falster’s largest town is Nykøbing Falster at Guldborgsund (sound). The town has a lot of historic interesting houses and places, the town square among others, dating back to the Medieval. The town’s most known building is Klosterkirken, a gothic church from the 15th century. Take a trip to Guldborgsund Zoo or the Medieval Centre, an exhibition of life in the late 14th century with various exhibitions and workshops for the children.
The southern part of Falster has the holiday town Marielyst which is especially known for one of the best beaches in Denmark. The town is visited by a large number of happy holiday guests, giving the town a lively atmosphere. During the summer the small town has a lot of shops, restaurants and discotheques.
South of Marielyst is Gedser Odde (cape), the southern most point in Denmark. The cape has some 5-7 metres high cliffs best explored on walking trips along the coast. A lot of birdwatchers come here to watch the migrating birds, especially in the fall.
