Geopark Odsherred – a unique nature experience
As something unique, you can experience Denmark's first and only UNESCO-recognized geopark, Geopark Odsherred. Odsherred has got this great appointment because of the unique istids landscape, created more than 15,000 years ago. You have many opportunities to experience this particular natural area. There are about 300 km of hiking trails in the area as well as many mountain bike routes. At VisitOdsherred in Nykøbing Zealand, you can buy a map of the whole area and the many hiking trails.
Another special natural and cultural experience can be found in Grevinge Forest, where there are many ancient monuments from the Stone Age. Here you can, among other things, see a large stendysse from the ages of the ages, also called "the tomb of Hamlet". It is said that the Prince of Shakespeare's piece should be buried here. Another story tells us that it is giant Hamle, which is buried in the depths. The feet should face west and head to the east in the 39-meter-long nozzle. It is doubtful that one of these should be buried here, but it does not make the stendyss and the rest of the forest less exciting.
