Market day in Næstved
Næstved's history stretches back to the early Iron Age. Today Næstved is one of Denmark's largest provincial towns. In Næstved, which has a preserved town hall from the Middle Ages, you can see quaint shopping streets with attractive speciality shops and a square in the centre where the market is held, and where you can buy flowers, cheese and fresh vegetables.
Suså and Herlufsholm
Susåen stream winds peacefully through the meadows around Næstved. A canoe trip is a wonderful way to explore the countryside. Susåen stream passes Herlufsholm Boarding School, which was founded in 1135 as a monastery for Benedictine monks. Visit Gavnø Castle, which is one of Denmark's most beautiful rococo castles.
BonBonLand and Karrebæksminde
At Næstved Zoo you can see the rare white tiger. Near Næstved lies BonBonLand, which is Denmark's 4th largest amusement park. The small fishing town of Karrebæksminde is an exquisite seaside holiday location with a camp site, restaurants, cafés and mini golf.
