Agersø: A small bird paradise in the middle of the Great Belt

Tine and Sarah from Ødysséen visit the islands of Denmark, where they hunt for nature and cultural experiences, seek out local stories and enthusiasts. This time they have been taken to Agersø, which is next to Skælskør.

Denmark Agersø ø travels

The island for bird lovers

It does not take much more than 2 hours to cross off København across Sjealland and take the ferry across the Great Belt to the small island, Agersø, which lies off Skælskør on Vestsjælland.

And although many Danes may not have heard of Agersø or considered going there, Agersø is the permanent resting place for the migratory birds, who need a place to rest their feathers on the commute from Africa.

Hans Ulrik, a biologist and ringing birds on the island, had even peeled the same little tower warbler - a regular commuter from Senegal Out of the network for several years in a row.

Despite the fact that Agersø's only town with small street ponds and a nice little lake in the middle of it all is not really big, we still managed to wander around the narrow streets confused to find the shelters that were supposed to be behind it. newly established nature center.

We found them fortunately; a whole bunch of very new and very nice shelters with a campfire site and sea views.

Agersø - denmark beach sea lighthouse - travel

A bike ride to the lighthouse on Agersø

On Agersø, sea views are not in short supply. The island is only 3 km wide at the widest point, so the island feeling arises quickly when you drive around and can see the water on both sides.

There are a few kilometers from tip to tip, so you can easily cycle from the lighthouse and the old cannons at the southern tip, through the old town with inn and mill to the protected bird area at the northern tip.

Best as we rolled off on our mountain bikes, we were about to run into a deer that came leaping. It's hard to say who was most surprised.

We walked all the way up the beach to the north and found a huge rock, we could sit and have lunch on with a view of the Great Belt Bridge, the calm water and the sun right in the berry.

So we sat there and pondered over life - and thought that when such beautiful spots as Agersø are found only 2 hours from København, then one should really get out and enjoy them a little more often.
