On a cycling holiday in Køge

Planning the cycling tour

Planning your cycling holiday, it is good to be able to draw up the lines of your tour. Check out Cyclistic.dk 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 maps of South Sealand and North Sealand at VisitKøge, DKK 125 (in 2015). This detailed map shows all national and regional cycling routes. Furthermore you can get a map of the middle part of Sealand, DKK 60. Cycling routes are also on this map.
