Coat of arms

Korsør is a Danish town and port. It is out on 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. It has a population of 14,647 (1 January 2019).[1]

Formerly the main ferry port from Zealand to Funen, the town of Korsør is divided into two halves by the Korsør Nor inlet, with the northern part named Halsskov. Most of the historical southern part of Korsør (Korsør proper) is low-lying and prone to flooding.

CultureEdit

The Korsør Biograf Teater, which opened in August 1908, is the world's oldest movie theater in continuous use that is still operating,[2]
