The hills, forests and lakes at Tystrup-Bavelse are a gem in the otherwise flat farm landscape of mid Zealand. The valley and lakes were shaped by the moving icecap under the last ice age about 15,000 years ago. At the north end of Tystrup Lake is Suserup Forest, which hasn’t been touched for centuries, leaving it full of old and crooked trees. The artificial sandy beach at Frederikskilde on the shore of Tystrup Lake is obviously popular, particularly during summer. Twisting Suså, the longest river in Zealand, runs through both Tystrup Lake and Bavelse Lake, and is perfect for kayaking and canoeing. History buffs might find the Bronze Age burial mounds interesting. Though there are several parking lots around Tystrup Lake, the largest is at Kongskilde Nature Centre, where there also is a map of the hiking trails.
