Village of Gedesby

Posted by

The old village of Gedesby used to be the southernmost village in Denmark before the new settlement of Gedser was made. The village doesn’t have a lot of huge sights but it is a nice little place to go and enjoy for a little bit.

At the entrance to the village you see a large old windmill and the central part of the village has old church in addition to several old thatches roof houses spread across the small village.

A bit further down the way is a new development in the form of a summer house area – I guess this collection of summerhouses is what gives enough turnovers for the local grocery shop to actually stay in business in this small town.

There isn’t a lot of great sights but it is worth stopping for a few minutes if you are going to Gedser Odde to see the southernmost point in Denmark since you drive right by the village on the highway just a couple of hundred meters away from the windmill.
