By Nykøbing Mors, close to the Limfjord, the oysters and shellfish are out of this world. Go experience the old market town and bring the kids to the largest flower park in northern Europe, Jesperhus.

Nykøbing is the 'capital' of the island of Mors, in the center of the Limfjord. It is known for its delicate oysters and shellfish. Nykøbing Mors is a very old market town, it got its market town privilege during the middle ages, because of its fishing industry and shipping trade. The harbour district, where the small houses have been accommodations for the workers of the city, craftsman and fishermen, has archaeological traces from the 12th century.
