With exciting amusement parks, informative museums and beautiful, rugged white beaches to visit, there can never be a dull moment. There is also a host of cultural events where singing and dancing and Danish beer are the order of the day. As a base to explore this and the rest of the Zealand region, visitors will be wise to choose holiday homes in Falster. The accommodation options offered by HomeAway in this corner of Denmark consist of tastefully furnished detached houses designed to ensure visitors can enjoy as much of the beautiful summer weather as possible while indoors.

-Cultural events: Music lovers, especially those with a soft spot for jazz will love the events on offer. One of these is the annual Femo Jazz Festival that is held between the end of July and the beginning of August. Another feast for the ears happens at about the same time in the town of Nykobing Falster; the Nykobing Festival.
-Flora and fauna: Falster is home to the Maribo Lakes Nature park which is in turn a haven for a wealth of bird species including the gorgeous and rare white-tailed eagle. Bird watchers will also be able to spot such beauties as the Greylag goose, pochards and grebes. The place is ribboned with a number of walking trails by which hikers can savour the beauty and quietness of the lakes. Those who reckon themselves adept with a fishing rod can also fish.
-Kids entertainment: Those who choose to take their children with them for their stay in Falster holiday homes will want to take them for a day of excitement in the Lalandia Water Park. The water slides there are unlike anything you’ve seen before and the swimming pools are large and great fun. Adults can take the opportunity to spoil themselves with a few hours in the sauna there.
-Eating out: Holidaymakers staying in Falster holiday rentals can give themselves a break from cooking their own meals and take time to try out the different restaurants in the locality. While in the island’s largest town, Nykobing Falster, they can gorge themselves on Scandinavian delights as well as delicious tapas. In Gedser they’ll find the Restaurant Najaden where they can have their fill of fresh fish helped down with a list of fine wines. They can also buy organic produce to eat at home.
