Welcome to Western Zealand
If, like most visitors, you're dashing through western Zealand between Funen and Roskilde, it's still easy enough to stop off to see Sankt Bendts Kirke in Ringsted, and perhaps stroll around the pretty backstreets and lakeside paths of Sorø for an hour or two. You’ll also find Denmark’s best-preserved Viking ring fortress at Trelleborg and more scant if significant Viking sites beside bird-rich Lake Tissø. That's part way to industrial port city Kalundborg with its unusual five-spired church. Well off the beaten track is Dragsholm Slot, a Michelin-rated restaurant in a medieval castle hotel.
