A Coastal Town with a Long History
Vordingborg is a harbour town in the south of the island of Zealand. Despite the fact it has many modern buildings, this is a place rich in history – as tourists will quickly realise when they are greeted on arrival by the sight of Vordingborg Castle with its hilltop Goose Tower, which dates back to the 14th century. The castle ruins are now a key feature of the Danish Castle Centre, an interpretation centre exploring the castles and royalty of Denmark. The centre of the town is small but has plenty of character, and is pedestrianised for easy access.
The European Route of Megalithic Culture passes through Vordingborg.
