Korsor, Denmark

Korsør is a Danish town and port located out to the Great Belt on the Zealand side, just south of where the Great Belt Bridge lands. It was the site of the municipal-council of Korsør municipality - today it is part of Slagelse municipality. The town itself is divided in two by the Korsor Nor - Denmark's largest inland lake. Technically, Korsor is on the south bank, and Halsskov on the North.

The town is quaint, with some really old houses, and a large church. The harbour quayside has been improved, with some new building and cafe's, but the scene is still dominated by the Grain Silos. Water sports are an attraction in Korsor; these include rowing, scuba diving, windsurfing, angling, sailing and the annual Maritime Culture Week.

In recent years, a considerable number of active artists and art workers have established themselves in Korsør, including several professionals.
