Danhostel Nykøbing Mors - the Other End of Denmark
Nykøbing Mors is a town in Denmark which has beautiful scenery and plenty of opportunities for sailing and canoeing. It is the largest town on the island of Mors in Limfjorden, located on the northwest side of Jutland. The area of Limfjorden is known for its mussels, oysters, and other seafood. Mors, the Seafood capital of Denmark, hosts a Shellfish Festival every year.
Expect to find plenty of attractions in the Limfjord area. Don't miss the Limfjord boat race in September. Visit the smaller islands of Venø, Fur, Egholm, and Livø, by boat or canoe, and experience an unforgettable tour of the islands, including a seal safari. Sail via the boat bus, or borrow your own row boat if you have a ticket to the Limfjord Museum. Rent a bicycle, or go on a tour of the islands at your own pace. Jesperhus, the largest flower park in North Europe has more than a million species of flowers and plants, in and outdoor water parks, a zoo, plenty of exciting rides and other fun activities. Hanklit, a 60 metre high cliff is a popular tourist attraction, and so is Højriis Castle which dates back to the 15th century. Learn about geology at the Moler Museum, home to Denmark’s largest collection of moler fossils. The Limfjord area is made up of the porous rock, diatomite, so a visit to the museum is worth a visit.
Danhostel Nykøbing Mors is metres away from a child-friendly blue flag beach. The hostel is in the middle of the forest, yet less than 1 km from the town centre and harbour. All rooms and common areas are handicap friendly. The amenities and facilities include a kiosk, table tennis and other games, a tennis court, a cosy TV room and lounge, and a washer/dryer. The banquet and meeting rooms are equipped with audio-visual equipment. For football lovers, access to several football pitches is possible, and golf lovers will be pleased with the 18 hole golf course close by.
Take a trip to Jutland and experience the other side of Denmark.
