Danhostel Vordingborg is situated in peaceful surroundings on a 36,000 m2 site with trails and lakes. Our hostel is part of the Svend Heinild Centre, where several lectures, plus theatrical and musical performances are frequently held. The café has room for approximately 200 guests, while the conference hall can accommodate up to 400 people for concerts, theatre and conferences. At our hostel, there are 20 comfortable rooms, all with private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, free parking, TV lounges, laundry facilities, and two well-equipped guest kitchens. Outside we provide petanque courts and basketball, or you can just relax in our garden with a good book and enjoy the lake views. In our main building, we have a canteen, which serves a delicious breakfast, packed lunches and dinner. The bus and train stops are just a 15-minute walk from our hostel and a grocery store is close by.
The beautiful town of Vordingborg, located in Southern Zealand, is surrounded by water and forests and lies just 90 km south of Copenhagen. There is a natural harbour close to the town centre with beach facilities, a restaurant and cafe. Vordingborg is known as Denmark’s culture capital. It is home to the local theatre, Cantabile 2, which hosts the international theatre festival, WAVES, in the middle of August every second year, and STARS, the country’s music venue. Vordingborg Fest Week - with some of Denmark’s best live bands - is held in July each year, and admission is free.
Activities in and around Vordingborg can be reached on foot, cycle or by car. Ask reception about bicycle rentals. Take a trip to Vordingborg Castle ruins, Denmark’s oldest and most important castle with its 26-m high Goose Tower (Gåsetårnet). While there, visit the Danish Castle Centre, check out the underground exhibition, and tour the botanical garden. Learn about the history of flax production and see the changing exhibitions at Kong Museum. Go for a stroll through Knud Forest, or take a trip to Masnedø Fort, which is open to the public. South Zealand Museum is also worth a visit and so are the areas of Møn and Lolland-Falster. Your visit to Vordingborg would not be complete without a trip to spectacular Mons Cliffs (Klint), a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
