If you like cycling and nature, Køge is a great base for your next holiday.

Planning the cycling tour

Planning your cycling holiday, it is good to be able to draw up the lines of your tour. Check out naviki.org to make your own personal route und pick the sights you want to visit on the tour.

Should you prefer to draw the route "on paper", it is suggested to buy a cycling map. You can buy a map of South Sealand, Møn and Lolland-Falster or a map of entire Denmark. These detailed maps show all national and regional cycling routes. Furthermore you can get a map of the middle part of Sealand with cycling routes on.
