Gedser Guide

Located at the southern end of the Danish island of Falster, in the Guldborgsund Municipality in Sjaelland region, the small town of Gedser is Denmark's southernmost town and has a population of around 760. As the town lies on the Baltic Sea coast, its port is very important in the area's economy. Infamously, Gedser was the first landing place of German troops during Germany's occupation of Denmark in 1940. A number of armoured cars and infantry troops hid in the ferry from Rostock and advanced into the harbour as soon as the ship docked, soon followed by another ferry.

The island on which Gedser is located, Falster Island, is in the south east of Denmark and forms part of the Sjaelland region and is administered by Guldborgsund Municipality. The island is home to Denmark's most southerly point, Gedser Odde, near Gedser.
