An attractive old seaside market town

For the last 6 years Korsør hosted tourists from 9 cruise ships. The town is situated around a harbour which for centuries has been an important part of its inhabitants' daily life. To move from the southern part of the town to the northern, or vice versa, citizens have to pass over a bridge which at certain times of the day will be raised in order to let ships in or out of the fiord. Boats, vessels, merchant ships and the occasional cruise liner are regular visitors.

castelsSituated in beautiful nature with woods, fields and meadows there are a number of manor houses and castles some miles south of Korsør. Most of them were originally built in the fifteenth and the sixteenth century like "Basnæs", "Borreby" and "Holsteinborg". They all have played an important role in Danish literary history. Hans Christian Andersen was regularly invited to stay with the families who owned the castles where he often found inspiration to his fairy tales.
