From Copenhagen the fastest and cheapest way is through Hundested-Rørvig Ferry connection. By train go through Hillerød. The ferry only operates in daytime which means until around 6PM in off-season.

The alternative is to go south of the fjord through Roskilde and Holbæk

The town of Rørvig has a speciality called Rørvigspegepølsen (the Rørvig sausage).


Oddsherred has a huge amount of summerhouses, so if you are staying for more than a day or two, it might be a good idea to rent one. Most newer summerhouses (build in the last 20-30 years) are insulated so they can also be used during wintertime. Some of the most popular booking sites are: Dancenter[], Dansommer [] and Novasol[]
