Holbæk is an attractive city with cosy waterfront restaurants along the fjord and a fantastic harbour.
As northwest Zealand’s largest city, Holbæk is located right on Holbæk Fjord, making it the perfect starting point or final destination for a trip along the fjord’s beautiful coastline. Just 60 km from Copenhagen, the area also boasts striking, hilly landscape formed during the Ice Age.
Explore the harbour’s many activities, from the restoration of historical wooden ships to a Turkish bath with hammam and outdoor pools.
Holbæk offers a variety of traditional tourist attractions such as museums, but south of town on the edge of nowhere is Denmark’s only protected dark sky area and the best place to stargaze. The tiny, old hamlet of Brorfelde is well known as the home of Denmark’s largest observatory, which has a long history of doing research.
