Feddet is a 2,000 year old peninsula formed by seawalls. Sand supply from the northeast means that the peninsula is still growing in width. The subsoil consists of deposits of sand, gravel and flint. Therefore, the soil is very nutrient-poor and here is a peculiar animal and plant life. The flat landscape is almost Jutlandic in character. To the east, Zealand’s largest heath is covered mostly by heather, to the south salt marshes, to the west grasslands that are grazed by sheep and in the central parts, oak, pine and birch forest. In many places only the sounds of nature are heard.

The bird tower – get close to nature
Depending on wind & weather, a trip to the bird tower on Feddet can offer exciting experiences. Sea eagles in pairs, a peregrine falcon over the meadows, blue hawks at the southern fields, or perhaps mountain eagles on overgrazing and crossbills in the forest. Have fun and look up if you want to see the sea eagle!

Strandegård Deer Park
Regardless of the season, a walk in Strandegårds Dyrehave is beautiful, in the spring it is the beautiful forest floor with violets and anemones and birdsong from above that pulls, and in summer it is recommended to take the trip by bike through the forest and further along Skansestien along the rugged coast. Lunch and coffee can be enjoyed in a clearing in the forest floor or from Skansen’s ramparts where there is a fantastic view of Fakse bay. In the southern part of the forest towards the coast lies a long dolmen and four burial mounds and testify to the time in the area several thousand years ago. Troldhøjene is located close to the coast with beautiful views of the water, and in clear weather you can see Møn, Stevns Klint and Præstø. If you are by car, you can park in the car park by Dyrehaven or by Strandegård.
