Peninsula in Storebælt

Røsnæs is a peninsula stretching 15 km out into Storebælt (the Great Belt). If you stand at the tip of the peninsula, you find yourself at the westernmost point of Zealand. Here, you can enjoy the views over Storebælt and the islands, or visit the lighthouse, Røsnæs Fyr.

Røsnæs is an undulating bank of clay, sand, gravel and stone. The landscape is particularly characterised by slopes that flatten out into stony beaches. On Røsnæs, there are both high viewing points and more low-lying land, such as the boglands Mademose and Nordre Mademose, and the lake Langsø. The lake attracts much avian wildlife, and from a distance, you can observe both migratory and breeding birds. Further to the east is Denmark’s largest vineyard, Dyrehøj Vingård, which offers guided tours.

There are three parking areas on Røsnæs, one of which is located close to the lighthouse, Røsnæs Fyr. From the parking areas, you can reach one of the three tracks, each of which tells its own war story. If you prefer to experience Røsnæs from the water, you can also hire a sea kayak.
