Take a unique Danish holiday to Lolland, known as the "pancake island".
Lolland is the fourth largest island in Denmark and has long been an extremely popular holiday destination. A holiday on Lolland can be as active or relaxed as you like. If the weather is good, you can sunbathe on one of the many lovely beaches or take advantage of the various walking and cycling routes available on the island.
A cycling holiday on Lolland is the perfect way to explore the island. With the flat terrain, everyone can join in. Choose between routes such as the Paradise Route, Søndersø Route and the child-friendly "Fun with pedals" route. If you don’t have a bike, it’s easy to hire one on Lolland.
Visit The Medieval Centre, situated in Nykøbing Falster. The museum is deservedly one of the most popular sites on Lolland. It is an open-air museum and research centre where you can see how people lived and dressed in the Middle Ages. If you feel hungry, you could eat at "Den Gyldne Svane", Denmark's only Middle Ages-themed restaurant.
Lolland also has plenty for those with an interest in art and museums. One of Denmark's oldest museums, Fuglsang Kunstmuseum, is situated between Nykøbing Falster and Nysted. The museum exhibits Danish art from the 18th century up to the present day. The cultural history museums Stiftsmuseet Maribo and Reventlow-Museet Pederstrup are also worth a visit.
If you are planning a break on Lolland, make sure you don’t miss out on the annual flea market Døllefjelde-Musse Marked, colloquially known as Dølle. Each year the market receives more than 100,000 visitors and famous bands such as DAD and Kim Larsen and Kjukken have played there.
You can travel to Lolland from the UK by flying into Copenhagen’s international airport, hiring a car and driving 100 miles along E47. The train is another option, and takes about 3 hours. It is impossible not to fall in love with this gem of an island, where you will find Denmark's best beaches, warmest bathing water and second-longest pier. One visit to Lolland is rarely enough.
