Sølager - Kulhuse ferry

The quick way between Halsnæs and Hornsherred with the small charming ferry Columbus.


Hop on a bike or take the car. Should the trip go to either Hundested or Jægerspris? The small Columbus ferry takes you 8 minutes from one part of the country to another.

The small ferry sails from Kulhuse in Hornsherred to Sølager by Hundested from April 1st - October 22nd. During the winter period, you must take the trip via Frederiksværk and Frederikssund.

Take your bike or car with you.

There are lots of experiences waiting to be unfolded on both sides of the fjord. Take, for example, the beautiful bike ride through the North Forest at Jægerspris and see the old King Oak, Northern Europe's oldest tree. On the trip through the forest, you also come to the old Jægerspris Castle, where you can explore the castle park, the museum and the memorial grove.

In Hundested you can explore art and culture at Hundested harbour. Here you can visit exciting glassblowing with a working workshop, experience the famous Sand Sculpture Festival or just let yourself be pampered with some good food on the quayside overlooking the sea and fjord.

The Polar Explorer's exciting museum, Knud Rasmussen's House, is beautifully located just a short bike ride from the harbour. Here you can experience Greenland through the polar researcher's own stories.
