Aastrup is a little village in eastern Falster, Denmark, located 6 km (3.7 mi) southwest of Stubbekøbing.[1] Aastrup Church, built in the Romanesque style, has frescos from the 13th and 15th century.[2]

The first documented reference to the village dates from 1419 when it was called Østrup.[3]

From 1908 to 1965, the Stubbekøbing–Nykøbing railway (Stubbekøbingbanen) went through Aastrup, 4.2 km from Stubbekøbing, where there was a station with a ticket office and a siding.[4][5]
