Seniors Find Treasures on Zealand

Researchers have made a huge discovery on an island called Zealand in Denmark with a rare find of Viking Jewelry. Several pieces, some of which contain gold, have been uncovered at a farm site that dates as far back as 1,300 years. They discovered the pieces using a metal detector. This senior owns a White’s Metal Detector and enjoys the value of a detector.It’s a total buzz finding coins, rings, gold and lots of other valuable items. I know this a “plug”, but look into it. Finding ‘treasures’ is a great hobby. I have several quart fruit jars full of old coins and other “finds.”

Senior visitors are discovering that the Zealand is a great place to discover other treasures and amenities. This island, also called Seeland, is the largest and most populated island in Denmark with almost 2.5 million inhabitants. It is connected to the mainland by the Great Belt Bridge.

Nykøbing Sjælland is one of the oldest market towns on Zealand, first mentioned in the last part of the 13th century, although the local church dates from the first half of the 13th century. 6,000 people live in this highly popular seaside resort. Selund (Seeland) means place with seals. The later name, Sjóland, changed the meaning to “sea-land”.

A new link for senior visitors to check out, Zoover, notes 109 sights in Seeland. The island is flat, its highest point is only 400 feet (120 meters) above sea level, which makes Zealand great for bicycling and walking. Senior visitors enjoy a vibrant city atmosphere, interesting sights, and impressive parks. 

Seniors Discover a Danish Riviera

North Zealand is one of the country’s most affluent areas, with large parts of the population commuting to the capital every day for work. North Zealand is also known as The Danish Riviera. Just a short drive from Copenhagen and lined with lovely, calm beaches, the region lives up to its name. The famous Coast Road winds north from the capital past beach after beach on the way to some of Denmark’s most popular holidays destinations.

North Zealand has everything for the nature enthusiast, deep woodlands, open landscapes and varied coastlines. Senior travelers will discover that North Zealand is a picturesque area surrounded by water and dotted with lakes and forests and where majestic castles take center stage.

Denmark is a long country that runs all the way to the Arctic Circle and Lapland. Travelingcolors will perk up your interests with some great photos of Denmark. Google Denmark kicks in with additional fjords and scenery. I had some difficulty with this blog… when I attempted to search Zealand, they kept kicking me back to New Zealand way down south in the Pacific. But I won out. I spent a lot of time translating Danish into English so that you might enjoy the senior travel blog today on Zealand.

 Enjoy Zealand and all of Denmark.  jeb
