Væggerløse is a town some 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) south of Nykobing Falster on the Danish island of Falster. It has large housing developments and until 2006 was the administrative centre for the now defunct Sydfalster Municipality.[1] In January 2014 it had a population of 1,353.[2]

Standing on a hilltop, Væggerløse Church dates from the late Romanesque period. It has early 16th century frescos depicting the Supper at Emmaus.[3]
