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.
