The lovely landscape of the Maribo Lakes attracts many tourists and nature lovers. The Maribo Lakes are situated in an area with large, natural depressions - formed when the enormous blocks of ice left by glaciers during the last Ice Age melted. The surrounding landscape is quite hilly – compared to the rest of Lolland – with elevations reaching above 20 metres.
The four lakes – Søndersø, Røgbølle Sø, Hejrede Sø and Nørresø are surrounded by woods, bogs and cultivated fields. The manors of Søholt, Ulriksdal and Engstofte are close by. Their large holdings of woods, meadows and expanses of unspoilt farmland are characteristic of the landscape, and create a mosaic of lakes, woods, meadows and farmland, intertwined with the cultural history of Lolland.
