West Zealand

West Zealand is a big green bite out of Denmark’s largest island, Zealand. Travelling around the region, you’ll experience a landscape full of contrast, from green hills and high cliffs, to beaches, islands and long Viking fjords. West Zealand is a great place to visit different harbour and market towns and smaller villages that lie around the region. Many are located on pretty fjords. Spend time soaking up 1000 years of history at the region’s impressive cathedral city, Roskilde.
