Bicycle route - Maribo/Bandholm
The tour starts in Maribo and goes towards Sakskøbing. By the road Skelstrupvej we turn left towards the village Hunseby. Hunseby Church has been closely associated to the manor Knuthenborg, which owned the church until the first of April 1964.
From the church the tour goes on along the road Kirkevejen. The houses on the right hand situated in number 30 are built in English style. They are called “Karen Knuths Friboliger” (The Free Quarters/Free Residence of Karen Knuth).
We turn left along the road Knuthenborgvej and drive further on to the road Skolevejen in the town Bandholm. Ahead by the road Skibevej the tour goes right. In the middle of the forest there is a lay-by/picnic area on both sides of the road. Right after the lay-by/picnic area on the left side of the road you’ll find a cluster of mounds from the Bronze Age situated near to the road.
We pass the granite wall around Knuthenborg Safari Park and drive further on to the road Havnegade, which is leading down to the harbour. Out in the basin there is a cement cover, under which a source of fresh water coming up above the ground is surrounded by salt water.
Bandholm Hotel, which has a café, lies in the street Havnegade. In the wheat magazine, which is open during the summer, you’ll also find a little café.
Up by the filling station you turn right and drive up to the church that is built in the years of 1873 and 1874.
Opposite the church you’ll find a bay called Svanevigbugten. There is a magnificent view of the sea called Smålandshavet. Along the road there are 5 well preserved mounds from the Bronze Age. One of them is a double mound.
We drive on, pass the village Reersnæs and drive towards Blans Harbour – a harbour in a village with a beautiful view of the sea. The village lies close to the little island called Lindholm, where Mr. Ellehammer in the year 1906 made the first flight in Europe.
The tour goes on to the village Keldernæs, which has a very well preserved passage grave in a mound on which a tree is growing. The passage grave consists of 21 construction stones, 6 capstones and a gallery with its 9 carries stones and 4 slabs. The chamber is 8 meters long and can be accessed from the south.
