Dyndet near Borup is a beautiful moorland area, located about 17 km west of Køge.

Dyndet is a former peat digging site, mostly exploited during World War II when fuel was scarce. With its rich flora and fauna, the area has today developed into a gem of nature and is one of the best botanical localities in Denmark.

Dyndet bathing lake

Here is also a bathing lake, a result of massive gravel digging in the past. Today the lake is a popular excursion destination. Climbing the stairs near the lake you can reach one of the tops of Køge Ridge for a marvelous view.

Stepping back in time

After your tour of the landscape, it is recommended to visit the cosy grocery shop Mosehuset, oozing an atmosphere and nostalgia of its own. Christmas elves are on sale here throughout the year!

If you are hungry, there is a charming excursion café available, Malerklemmen. Here you will feel as if you have stepped several hundred years back in history.

We also recommend a visit to Aakanden. Here you can find antique and vintage decor for your house and garden. Aakanden is also noted for its French inspired iron furniture, all forged by hand according to old traditions. It is possible to spend the night here in a beautiful holiday apartment, set in lovely scenery.
