Before you go hiking

Hiking in the Surroundings of Nysted
From Nysted Beach Camping you can easily get out on the 7 km long hiking route that follows the coast around Aalholm Castle. You come around Skansen to Nysted Beach. Along the market town you pass the cemetery and Nysted Klostermose, before the trip goes back passing the water tower. You can find inspiration for your hiking around Nysted here. In Nysted you can also follow the Danish poetry route, listen to small audio items along the way and hear how the landscape has inspired the poet. The 5 km poetry route begins at Emil Aarestrup’s house in Nysted, and you can find more inspiration here. Another wonderful trip goes to Skejten, which is a nature area with oak trees, rare plants and an exciting fauna in the marsh. The area is completely untouched, and you can see oak trees, which are approximately 300 years old. The trails on Skejten are uneven and wet, so it may be an idea to replace the hiking boots with rubber boots. In the summer, Skejten is grazed by cattle, and there is a good opportunity to see breeding birds in the area. Find inspiration for the hike around Skejten here.
