Things to do
-Cultural experience: A visit to the town of Holbaek will afford visitors the opportunity to spoil themselves with a Turkish bath. This facility combines both Scandinavian and Turkish bathing cultures to provide the holidaymaker with complete relaxation. And they could also enjoy a soothing massage along with their bath. Holidaymakers can also enjoy a live musical performance at the Musikhuset Elvaerket or a play at the Holbaek Teater.
-Amusement parks: Those Asnaes Area holiday home residents who travel with their kids can treat them to a day at the Odsherred Zoo as it is found within this locality. Here the tiny tots can marvel at the dazzling colours of peacocks and the massive horns of mountain goats. Sommerland Sjaelland is another place where holidaymakers can have great family fun. It is replete with scintillating water slides and offers excellent space for picnics and barbecues. There is a variety of cafes and eateries here for hungry guests.
-Museums: A visit to West Zealand is an opportunity to find out more about the days of the Vikings and one of the places visitors can do this is the Kalundborg Museum. There are relics excavated from a Viking settlement on display here. In the second largest city of the West Zealand region, Holbaek, is the Holbaek Museum where artefacts dating back to the stone age are stored. But perhaps the highlight is the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde where a number of reconstructed Viking ships are on display.
-Ancient ruins: In Kalundborg tourists will find what is left of an ancient castle which was built in the 12th century in the fortified medieval town known simply as High Town. Though it’s no longer surrounded by walls, the town’s boundaries are still clearly recognisable. There are a number of other remarkable ancient buildings in Kalundborg including a former bishop’s house that is now used for council meetings which was constructed in the 15th century.
-Beaches: Apart from a history lesson one can also enjoy sun and sand in West Zealand. One of the most sought after sections of coastline in these parts is the Sejero Bay on the Kattegat coast where powdery white sands abound. Kalundborg boasts a number of beaches including Eskebjerg and Gisselore Beaches where residents of Asnaes Area holiday homes can bask in relative seclusion.
