Idestrup Church built in the Romanesque style dates from the 12th century. With its whitewashed walls, rounded windows and a red tiled roof it stands in the middle of the town. Other buildings of interest include the dairy from the late 19th century, the foramlingshus (community centre) from 1901 and the old people's home with a history going back to 1924.
The town's development owes much to Edward Tesdorph, originally a farmer, who built a pump station to drain the area after a flood in 1872. He was behind the local high tension power station (1912) as well as the sugar refinery in Nykøbing.
The town todayEdit
The town has a sports association, Idestrup-Væggerløse Idrætsforening, and Idestrup Hallen, a sports hall suitable for football, handball, gymnastics, badminton and tennis. There is also a library, food store and, since 2011, a new private school.
