Lolland

Lolland (formerly spelled Laaland) is the fourth largest island of Denmark, being 1,243 square kilometers large. It is part of the county Storstrøm.

The highest peak of the entire isle, is 25 meters high, and was an important spot for the communication highway for the Germans during World War II. - The peak is just outside the village of Horslunde[?]. Since Lolland doesn't get any higher, it is very flat.

The largest town of Lolland is Nakskov, with 10,000 residents. Other towns worth noting are Maribo, Sakskøbing[?] (which was the capital of Denmark for two years some time in the 15th century) and Rødby[?].
