Nykøbing Falster just got a new Instagrammable place ! You’ll find this very colourful street art at Store Kirkestræde, right close to the Abbey Church. The project, called Latinerkvarterets Street Art Projekt (“The Latin Quarter Street Art Project”) was made in collaboration with the commune, the cultural center Multicenter Syd, and several painting shops (Nykøbing F Malerlaug, Colour Plus). ColourPlus actually gave the 100 L of primer, the paint and the materials needed by the young people from the cultural center to make the cozy street colourful.
What do you think ? Would you take selfies there ? Then don’t forget to add the hashtag #latiner4800 ! You can see more photos of the street’s make over in the local newspaper.
If you want to purchase some Danish souvenirs to your gourmets friends or family, or just bring home a little piece of Nykøbing, the shop Thea is THE place to go. This amazing boutique is located in the center, at Frisegade 4.
Thea is actually the little sister of Marius, the tobacco and alcool shop, an institution in Nykøbing since 1865 (which I’ll make you discover soon in a next blog article !).
At Thea, you’ll find amazing homemade tea blends, numerous variants of local candies, salted liquorice (another Danish specialty), chocolate, and many other sweet things to taste, drink or to decorate your home.
If I can give you a good tip, there are at least three products you should definitely bring back home. First, the “inevitable” flavoured lakrids (liquorice). You’ll find many different shapes and flavours, from the trendy passion fruit liquorice coated with white chocolate to the old traditional type of liquorice with ammonium salt.
For those who are not into liquorice, the handmade bolcher will without doubt be a hit. These hard candies are made in Denmark since a very long time, with boiled syrups, plant extracts, dye and flavourants. So many to chose from !
And if you really enjoyed your stay in Nykøbing, why not have a little piece of the town on your walls ? The local graphic designer Mette Glyholt makes and prints right here in town these very beautiful posters, about Nykøbing but also other cities from the Lolland-Falster region.
