You pick up the Baltic Sea Cycle Route Stage 7, starting in Stege. This cosy market town is full of events throughout the summer. From Stege towards Vordingborg, you might stop at Thorsvang Collectors Museum. Here you can experience life in the old days or perhaps take a trip to the Labyrinth Park at Kalvehave. Have a go at some of the brain teasers and puzzle activities. As you leave Møn, you cycle across Queen Alexandrines Bridge, named after Christian X’s wife. Alternatively, during high season you could take the Møn Ferry, the sailing cycle route, from Stege to Kalvehave.

Stop in Vordingborg and visit Denmark’s Castle Centre. Here you will learn all about the history of castles, kings and power, in Denmark. As the road continues towards Næstved, the Baltic Sea Cycle Route will carry you along the coast, through incredible countryside and nature reserves. Before you reach Næstved, make sure you stop at Gavnø Castle. Gavnø is one of Denmark’s most admirable rococo castles, offering magical adventures for all.

Stage 7 finishes in Næstved. Direct your gaze upwards as you walk around, or you might miss the incredible street art that is a part of the Næstved Art Town project. International artists visited Næstved, a town they would never usually have come to, to beautify the town’s forgotten and hidden gables.

Stage 7 can also be started in Næstved. From here ride to Stege and continue onto Stage 6 over to Falster and Lolland.

GAVNØ CASTLE

Gavnø Castle is a beautiful rococo castle and an important part of Danish heritage. Gavnø is overflowing with history and full of stories of war, romance and knights in shining armour. It houses the North’s largest private collection of around 1000 paintings. The collection is a representation of art in Europe throughout the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries. The Baroness has impressively restored five rooms in the Gallery Hall, and Castle Abbey that stems from the start of the 1400s is known for being the most colourful church in Scandinavia. You can experience many different things in the castle grounds, such as the treetop adventures and playing on the natural playgrounds, Pirate Land, Butterfly Land and Mountain Goats. Visit the castle brewery and the tulip café. If you arrive in spring, Denmark’s largest Tulip Festival will greet you in full bloom. In July and August, it is the turn of the Lilly Festival.
