Stay at Danhostel Faxe and visit Europe's largest and most beautiful limestone quarry at Faxe Limestone Quarry. Stand on a 63-million-year old sea, where sharks, crocodiles and squids swam among lovely corals. Their fossils helped to form the limestone quarry we see today. Be adventurous and rent a hammer and chisel at the museum, or go fossil hunting with a guide from Geomuseum Faxe. A visit will be unforgettable. Learn more about many fascinating discoveries at the neighbouring Faxe Geological Museum.
The name Faxe means horse's mane. In the town centre, there is a sculpture of the mythological horses Rimfaxe and Skinfaxe. The area around Faxe offers a wealth of excursion opportunities, and you can stroll through Faxe Town Centre and do some shopping. Visit the monument and Nikoline’s small half-timbered house in Nørregade where Faxe Brewery opened in 1901. Nearby attractions in this scenic region include the stunning beach at Feddet, Faxe Ladeplads Mini Town and Park, Bonbonland in Næstved, Camp Adventure in Haslev, Paragliding Club (Svæveklubben) in Kongsted, Trines House, Blåbæk Mills and several mansions. Check out the modern double cinema close by, especially if the Danish weather takes a turn for the worse.
Enjoy a grand tour of Denmark's oldest and best-preserved Renaissance castle, Gisselfeld Monastery which can be traced back to 1370; however, the current buildings were built between 1547 and 1575 by Peder Oxe. The name is a bit misleading because Gisselfeld Monastery was never a monastery. It was a castle used for defence with ring wall, drawbridges, arrow slits and a moat. Today Gissenfeld Monastery is one of the largest estates with 3,850 ha of land. Annually, over 40,000 visitors come to enjoy the area, the beautiful castle park with many carp ponds and the botanical garden.
Enjoy the tranquillity of Southern Zealand at our Danhostel and end your day with delicious old-fashioned ice cream at the hostel's ice cream shop and plan the next day's trip to BonBon-Land.
