Greve has a lot in store for the activity-seeking tourist.
Eight kilometres of white sandy beaches, exciting harbours, a world famous local museum, the largest swimming baths in Scandinavia, a much visited culture and music house, impressive green recreational areas, charming villages and excellent shopping facilities. An extensive white sandy beach stretches over eight kilometres from Hundige Harbour, very popular among yachtsmen, past the charming fishing harbour of Mosede to the Mosede Fort area which was an important part of Copenhagen's fortifications 100 years ago.
There is news for this place in 2014! The old fort is to be converted into a modern museum of military and cultural history and featuring how daily life was affected by the war during World War I. The new museum will offer a host of activities for both children and adults. The indoor parts of the museum will be closed in 2013, but it is still possible to visit the open air part of the Fort, and conducted tours are organised by the Friends of Mosede Fort, Mosede Forts venner.
Along Gammel Køge Landevej, tourists will find Hundige Strand Familie Camping, and a number of good restaurants and other eating places will be pleased to appease your hunger in that vicinity.
International entertainment and idyllic villages
Should the weather be less suitable for outdoor swimming, pay a visit newly renovated Greve Svømmehal, one of the largest swim centres in Denmark. Portalen Culture House stages plenty of Danish and international entertainment, events ranging from rock and jazz to musicals and theatre performances.
Behind the municipality's residential areas of single family homes, you will find charming, old villages in Greve, Karlslunde, Kildebrønde and Tune. In addition, the local museum, Greve Museum, accommodated in a beautiful 19th century farmhouse, features the old Hedebo culture and its world famous Hedebo needlework.
Great scenic experiences in store for you
Go to Hedeland, the former clay and gravel pits, which have in recent decades been converted into an impressive recreational area – to be enjoyed by the locals as well as tourists. A steam railway, several riding centres, a motorsport track, lakes and streams for canoeing, an 18-hole golf course and an amphitheatre seating 4,000 people are available today, and then we should not forget to mention the the ski jump hill and the vineyard, rather un-Danish features.
A great place for an outing is also Kildebrønde Orchard. During the summer period, they sell strawberries and raspberries. Apples and pears are sold in the autumn, and prior to Christmas they have a Christmas bazaar with sale of Christmas trees, decorative spruce, elves, decorations etc. PYO is also offered. And the farm shop sells picked fruit and berries as well as potatoes, peas, juice, cider, honey etc.
