For locals and visitors, boat services to the small islands of Nakskov Fjord (Slotø, Vejlø, Enehøje, and Albuen) are arranged from the town of Nakskov. A ferry service connects the harbour northwest of the town of Nakskov over the Langeland Belt to the town of Spodsbjerg on the island of Langeland. Local bus service ensures stable transport within the town and to neighbouring areas. Nakskov place in the firth of Lolland also accesses bike routes following the dykes encompassing the Island of Lolland, offering an excellent view of the island’s coastline.

Nowadays Nakskov is an appealing environment for tourists to visit, with one of the most environmentally conscious and cleanest town environments of Denmark. As technologically and environmentally based enterprises replace the predeceding heavy industries, Nakskov stands out as a pleasurable goal of travel and a center of culture and commerce. In recent years, local government has focused on restoring Nakskov’s former architectural beauty, and has restored the town’s cityscape into a culturally stimulating and pleasurable entertainment and shopping area, making Nakskov a typically Danish idyllic countryside town, encompassing the ethnic and cultural diversity brought on by globalization.

Large parts of the wetlands around Nakskov were drained in the 19th century. The dyke along the southern shore of the fjord allows walking or biking to the village of Langø. The picturesque cityscape of Nakskov also appeals to cultural tourism, and favourable price levels attract shoppers from the western Baltic region. Local government’s intense attention to environmental technology and awareness also attract a substantial number of visitors using the town as a hub for environmental and cultural tourism.
