The old town of Holbæk is located at the western part of Zealand. It is the biggest town of the area and around an hour drive out of Copenhagen with frequent trains connecting the town with Copenhagen. The town is serving the surrounding area and used to be the head of Holbæk County in the old days.
The city is small enough to make it easy to walk around. A good place to park was down at the harbor which had a sufficient number of free parking available for the limited number of visitors on this sunny spring day. The harbor is a pretty little place where you can look out at the fjord. There is also a small ferry to the little island of Orø. There is a Jensen Bøfhus down at the harbor which is a chain of cheap steak houses in Denmark. I guess you shouldn’t expect gourmet dining in the harbor of Holbæk – but this restaurant is located right at the water which would make it a great view to go along with the meal.
The center of the town has a few old houses which are nice to look at – one of the oldest houses is now the home of the town museum.
It is nice to go and visit the little town – it is a nice little place. But it probably isn’t worth heading here on a day trip from Copenhagen if you are visiting. You would be better off spending an extra day exploring Copenhagen.
