Sightseeing

Welcome to Nyord

When you arrive at Nyord from Ulvshale on Møn on a clear day, the first thing you are struck by is the incredible wide open spaces, the everlasting stretch of meadows and sky. The meadows are Nyord’s main attraction and the home and resting place for thousands of birds. Just  halfway through the meadows, you can enter the bird tower and enjoy the magnificent view. A kilometre further in, after arriving at the island’s highlands, you turn and reach the nature centre Hyldevang. From here, you can at the vantage point also get a breathtaking view across the meadows. Hyldevang offers good parking conditions, a playground, fireplace and shelters.

A small exhibition about Nyord is also available. Don’t miss the idyllic and romantic stroll from Hyldevang into Nyord town via the old dirt road. It only takes 5 minutes and provides an unforgettable experience for life. Here, you get the closest to Nyord’s nature. People who can’t make the walk and visitors to the church can use the small car park at the town. In addition, Restaurant Lollesgaard has a parking area for their guests. Access to this can be found just after the entrance to Nature Centre Hyldevang.

Nyord meadows – one big bird sanctuary:

Nyord meadows is about 400 hectares large. It is one of the largest and most birdy beach areas in East Denmark. Almost half of the meadows are owned by the Birdlife Fund, which since 1971 has bought the fields to preserve them as one of Denmark’s most important habitats for geese, ducks and waders.

Shopping

In the winter season there is not much open on Nyord, so we refer to Stege – there is a large selection of supermarkets and restaurants.

In the summer season, Nyord has a small grocery store called “Lillebod”. Here you can buy the most basic groceries, home-made yarn, etc.

In summer, our local inn – “Lollesgård” is also open. Here you can have good homemade food.

We also have “Nordbohandlen”. A lovely place where you can buy different spirits, local creamer and mustard etc.

At Nyord there is also a local gallery and shop. At Runas you can buy glass art, jewelry, etc.
