Køge The Essential
This lively port is one of Denmark's oldest medieval cities, as its charter dating from 1288 demonstrates. The town grew up around the market square and the natural port at the mouth of the river. In the 16C the site became a prosperous market town thanks to trade with the Baltic countries. The local fishing catch is unloaded every day at the main port, and yachts of all sizes are moored 2km away.
