and the north coast of Lolland

Fejø, Femø and Askø.
Take the ferries - the sailing schedule
can be found here:
The islands are ideal for a walking
or cycling trip.
Make some island hopping north of Lolland and visit the idyllic small islands, Fejø, Femø, and Askø. You can get there by ferry – check the timetable here: www.lollandfaergefart.dk
The islands are ideal for walking and bicycling. On Fejø and Femø you can rent bicycles in the port.
Fejø has a microclimate with late frosts and one of the longest growing seasons in Denmark, making it very well suited for apples and pears.It is known for its many apple plantations and has an annual festival Æblets Dag (Day Of The Apple). Local products include apple juice, jam, cider and honey. The island also hosts an annual festival of classical and jazz music in July (2022: 13th – 17th).
Femø is somewhat more hilly, and if you get tired you can rest at one of the artistically decorated benches situated round the island. Every year since 1971 women have met and spent their holiday together at a Women’s Camp in the North-Eastern corner of the island. As you might have guessed, men are not allowed into this area! This is, however, not the case when it comes to the annual jazz festival held in August (2022: 4th – 7th). Jazz enthusiasts of both sexes invade the island and enjoy the music and festival atmosphere.
You reach the island of Askø by ferry from Bandholm.
It is connected to the neighbouring island Lilleø (little island) by a 700 m long dam, which dates back to 1914. Both islands are known for fruit, and certainly Lilleø is almost covered by fruit trees.
With its picturesque, yellow houses, the town is a special treasure on the north coast of Lolland, and from the harbor you have a magnificent view of the archipelago.
You can swim from the small beach as well as from the bathing establishment right next to the ferry berth.
You can get to Bandholm from Maribo with the veteran course that stops right in front of the hotel. In one of the old, fine warehouses you will find Hvedemagasinet with a selection of locally made handicrafts.
In addition to the ferry service, Kragenæs is also a recreational holiday area with a beautifully situated marina and campsite, and as a neighbor also the monument Dodekalitten.
From here there are also good excursion opportunities to Ravnsbjerg Bakker, the only hilly landscape on Lolland.
Here you can e.g. see Ravnsborg castle ruins and the distinctive church in Birket.
The word DODEKALIT is Greek and means twelve stone. The finished work of art will consist of 12 stone figures carved from granite, 7-9 m high.
Each stone weighs 25-45 tons. The top 2 meters of the figures are carved as heads, all facing the center in a circle 40 meters in diameter.
DODEKALITTEN is located high in the "Lolland Alps" with a view of the archipelago, the graveyard Glentehøj and 3 other Bronze Age mounds. Between the figures, from the perches, there will be electroacoustic music composed for the place all year round in the daytime.
Sculptor is Thomas Kadziola - composer is Wayne Siegel.
The dodecahedron is a beautiful experience that combines art - culture - nature and history. Bring the food basket!
