Nykøbing was the place of birth of Danish-Norwegian author Aksel Sandemose and the reputed inspiration for the fictional town of Jante, associated with the Jante Law, in Sandemose's novel A Fugitive Crosses His Tracks.
Nykøbing was the seat of the former Dueholm monastery, now part of the Morsland Historical Museum.
Located just outside the town on a spit is Nykøbing Mors Cricket Club Ground. The ground has in the past held Women's One Day Internationals, including matches for the now defunct Denmark women's team.
