Nykøbing Falster is another old market town with a fine collection of half-timbered houses. The town is beautifully nested on the shore to Guldborg Strait, right in the middle of what the Danish call the South Sea Islands. These islands are generally considered remote countryside, where very little thrives besides sugar beets, but Nykøbing Falster has kept its historical position as the region's biggest town. Today, the main sights are the pretty church, which was funded in the 15th century, along with several cute half-timbered houses, some dating back as far as the 16th and 17th century. Note that the name "Nykøbing", meaning "New Market Town" in Danish, is quite a common town name in Denmark, so it's important to add the geographical postfix "Falster", when typing into the GPS or buying a train ticket.
