Things to do
-Wildlife: Tourists to South Zealand will be pleasantly surprised that they can find the charming beasts that roam the savannahs of Africa and jungles of Asia in the north of Europe. At the Knuthenborg Safaripark amusement park holidaymakers will come nose to nose with such animals as tigers, lions, bears and wolves. All in all there are over a thousand animals enclosed in the park’s 500 hectares. For more interaction with the denizens of the wild a visit to the Guldborgsund Zoo is recommended. Penguins, kangaroos and meerkats are among many other animals housed there.
-Nature walks: Besides the wildlife, visitors can experience the multi-faceted beauty of nature through the rugged landscapes of South Zealand. These consist of dense woodlands that end in dramatic white chalk cliffs dropping into the vast blueness of the Baltic. The views hikers will enjoy as they walk along the Mons and Stevns cliffs are simply without equal anywhere in the world. Lucky tourists will get to see schools of seals frolicking on the shores.
-Museums: History buffs staying in Southern Isles holiday homes will be able to find out more about the Cold War and Denmark’s part in it from the Koldkrigsmuseum Stevnsfort. It is incredible how the museum has been literally carved into the white walls of the Stevns cliff. Also in the same area is the GeoCenter Mons Klint, a geology centre where one can find out all they want to know about Denmark’s geological development over the years.
-Food and drink: There are a number of eateries available to residents of Southern Isles holiday homes. One of the tourist favourites is the Gourmet Gaarden where patrons can tuck into delicious Danish specialities prepared with organic ingredients. They will be served by warm, cheerful staff and be treated to meals you’ll struggle to find in other European gourmet restaurants, and at very reasonable prices. A good alternative still on the island of Moen is David’s. Here holidaymakers can enjoy steak, cheese and other dishes prepared in traditional Danish style and served in an outdoor setting.
