MARIBO – NYKØBING F

Maribo is a market town from around the 1400s with a wonderful atmosphere. On the Baltic Sea Cycle Route Stage 4, the first stop ought to be the magnificent cathedral. Just north of the cathedral, you will find the beautifully preserved streets from the Middle Ages. At the market place, there is a statue of the town’s most famous son, the poet and priest Kaj Munk. If you feel like spending an extra day in Maribo, you should cycle the 35 kilometres around Søndersø, where the natural environment is exceptional. On the north side of the lake is Engestofte Manor. Here you can stroll through the forest, searching for rare orchids.

On the way to Nykøbing Falster, it is worth having a rest in Sakskøbing. In the summer, volunteers at the info-house in the town square love to tell stories of the area. The monument of ‘Roepigerne’ or ‘the Sugar Beet Girls’ is also in the town square, in celebration of the Polish seasonal workers that worked in the turnip fields of Lolland from 1893-1929. Lolland-Falster is well known for the production of high-quality foods, and you will find a large selection of these available in Hotel Saxkjøbing’s Farm shop.

You can also start Stage 4 in Nykøbing Falster and end it in Maribo, then continue onwards on Stage 3.

KNUTHENBORG SAFARI PARK

Lolland-Falster is the home to over 50 estates and manor houses. One of the most famous is the estate of Knuthenborg, just north of Maribo. It houses northern Europe’s largest safari park with over 1000 animals from all over the world. These roam free in the beautiful countryside.

You can get up close and personal with Lamas, tigers, stags, kangaroos, giraffes and many other exotic animals. The animals are so calm that the Safari Park even hosts a public running event in late summer. Knuthenborg is open from April until October. There is so much to see! You may want to consider staying the night in one of their luxurious stilted tents.
