Cycle route: The Southernmost Denmark - 34 km
Around South Falster, through forest and along the coasts. A most delightful tour, 34 km long. The starting point is at Lupinparken in Bøtø, in the southern part of Marielyst.
The route takes you south, through a summerhouse area and down to the Bøtø forest. Near the entrance to the forest is a lovely beach. You can either cycle or walk through the forest, which is home to wild horses and cattle. These animals maintain the area and are transforming it into a new, open forest. Keep your distance from the animals. Plenty of information on-site.
In Gedesby you can, for example, visit the small church. Refreshments can be purchased here, or visit the lovely beach.
The halfway mark is at Gedser Odde, at the Marine Station. Take a seat for a rest, there is also a toilet here and a tap to fill your water bottle.
Gedser Odde is Denmark's southernmost point. The area is exposed to the wind and water, and every year the sea consumes some of the coastline. Several buildings have already disappeared, but the former Marine Station is standing its ground.
The tour continues towards Gedser. If you are interested in birdwatching, you can visit the Gedser Bird Observatory on your way.
Gedser has a grocery store, places to eat out, accommodation, attractions and a lovely nature area.
Further north, the tour follows the old main road, through small villages to Marrebæk, where it then crosses overland back to Lupinparken and Marielyst.
If you think the route may be too long, then it can be split over two days - a northern part of 23 km to Gedesby, and a southern part of 11 km, where you can, for example start in Gedesby and ride to Gedser Odde then back again.
