When you stay at Danhostel Faxe, visit Europe's largest and most beautiful limestone quarry - Faxe Limestone Quarry. You will stand on a 63-million-year old sea, where sharks, crocodiles and squids swam among lovely corals. The fossils of these sea creatures helped to form the limestone quarry we see today. If you are the adventurous type, go fossil hunting with a guide from Geomuseum Faxe, or rent your own hammer and chisel at the museum and go on an adventure. One visit can last a whole day and will certainly be unforgettable. At the neighbouring Faxe Geological Museum, learn more about many fascinating discoveries.
The name Faxe means horse's mane, and 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.
If you, your friends or family want to enjoy a grand tour, visit Denmark's oldest and best-preserved Renaissance castle, Gisselfeld Monastery. The name can be traced back to the year 1370, but 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 that was 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 the many carp ponds, and the botanical garden.
