Small kingdom, lots to discover

Frederiksborg Castle is a moated castle in Hillerød

This stunning holiday starts and ends in the cycling capital of Europe. Whether the Royal Palace, the Little Mermaid or what is probably the longest pedestrian zone in the world, there is a lot to discover in Copenhagen. No less interesting is the coastal area to the North of the capital. Palaces and castles alternate with natural sandy beaches and thus enchant cyclists. Discover an amazing part of Denmark on this cycle holiday.

Itinerary at a glance

Having fun at Tivoli or taking a stroll in the old town? Why not both! From Copenhagen, you can cycle along the Øresund strait to Helsingør. You'll catch a glimpse of the Isefjord from the charming town of Højby, and the cathedral in Roskilde is particularly worth a visit.

The Danish capital has a lot to offer. Stroll through the historic city centre or visit the well-known amusement park Tivoli.

You leave Copenhagen heading North. Today’s stage takes you along the Öresund, the strait between Zealand in Denmark and Scania in Sweden. Always with a view of the Baltic Sea, you can quickly reach the well-known lido Bellevue. A dip in the cool water provides refreshment. In Helsingør we recommend a visit to Kronborg Palace. Alternatively you can take the ferry for a short trip to Helsingborg located on the Swedish side.

Take some time to visit the old port town of Helsingør before you continue on your cycle tour. The coastal resorts of Hornbæk and Gilleleje will enchant you and invite you to linger. Now the route continues leading you inland and away from the coast. You pass extensive nature reserves and small lakes. Impressed by the numerous contrasts, you have reached your Day Finish Hillerød. Visit Frederiksborg Palace or simply treat yourself to a good glass of wine at the hotel – both are a great ending to the day.

You cycle back to the coast. The small, idyllic villages of Tisvildeleje and Liseleje as well as numerous beaches exude their charm. You have reached today’s Day Finish Højby. The picturesque small town is situated on the opposite side of the Isefjord. The ferry ticket to Rørvig is included. 

On the Odsherred peninsula, the sea, the dunes and the beautiful salty sea air are practically never far away, You find the most stunning sandy beaches there. But your cycling stage today has a lot to offer too: Breathtaking impressions await you along the coast of the Isefjord, Lammefjord and Holbækfjord. The port town of Holbæk was first mentioned in 1199. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of St.Nicholas is worth a visit.  

Today you start South along the Isefjord. Green meadows and enchanting villages await you. The final part leads you along the bay of Roskilde. Roskilde Cathedral welcomes you already from afar. Since the beginning of the 15th century, the cathedral has been the preferred burial church of the Danish royal family and since 1995 it has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the Viking Ship Museum is also worthwhile.

The final stage takes you directly back to the starting point of your cycle holiday, the Danish capital Copenhagen. From Albertslund you have access to the C99 Super Cycle Route, which takes you to the centre with almost no traffic. In the afternoon there is still enough time to explore the city on your own. During a stroll you can review all the wonderful impressions of your cycling tour through North Zealand.
