Falster is an island in south-eastern Denmark with an area of 514 km² (198 sq. miles) and 43,398 inhabitants as of 1 January 2010. Located in the Baltic sea, it is part of Region Sjælland (County of Zealand) and is administered by Guldborgsund Municipality. Falster includes Denmark's southernmost point, Gedser Odde, near Gedser.

The largest town is Nykøbing Falster with over 40% of the island's inhabitants. Other towns include Stubbekøbing, Nørre Alslev and Gedser.

Falster is connected to the larger island of Zealand to the north by the Farø Bridges (Farøbroerne) on European route E47 linking Copenhagen to Hamburg and the south. To the south-west, the E47 connects Falster to the island of Lolland via a tunnel under the Guldborgsund strait. The Farø bridges join on the small island of Farø, and from there a further bridge gives access to the eastern neighbouring island of Møn.

There are two other bridges connecting to Lolland: the Guldborgsund Bridge at the northern end of the strait and the Frederick IX Bridge at Nykøbing Falster.
