Walking through the streets of Køge town centre, you will, on the one hand, enjoy the sight of the old, well preserved houses relating the long history of the town, and, on the other hand, you will see Køge as a modern, enterprising town with a vivid cultural and business life

Køge North Station is a new train station in Køge. The station is a characteristic landmark for Køge and the new gate for travellers til Copenhagen. In the near future a train ride til Copenhagen will only last 20 minutes.

Køge was founded by royal order at the first place south of Copenhagen that had a natural harbour. The order was issued in the years prior to 1288 when a town plan was designed. This plan is still valid for the old town centre. Køge was granted a municipal charter in 1288.

Køge is among the towns in Denmark that have the largest number of well preserved half timbered houses from the Renaissance period in its centre, including Denmark's oldest half timbered house from 1527, verified by a date inscription, and the oldest town hall still in use, dating from 1552.
