Day 1 ARRIVAL NYBORG Welcome to Funen and to old, historic Nyborg, where Danish kings preferred to stay here in the royal castle, which is the oldest one in the Nordic countries. For more than 400 years up to 1560 Nyborg was the capital and center of Denmark. Nowadays it's a charming city where you can easily follow the trails and signs back in time.
Day 2 NYBORG - SVENDBORG (B) Today you will pass or visit castles and manor houses on your way to Svendborg. "Holckenhavn Slot" is just outside Nyborg at the beautiful Holckenhavn Fjord. The route goes partly through soft waving hills inland and along the coast with stunning views to the sea and the islands Thurø, Tåsinge and Langeland until you reach Svendborg.
Day 3 SVENDBORG - SOUTH FUNEN ISLANDS (B) Explore the islands Tåsinge, Langeland, Ærø, Drejø and/or Skarø. Half-timbered houses and romantic villa¬ges and islands are forming the tour today no mat¬ter which route you choose. Start by crossing the "Svendborgsundbroen" to the island Tåsinge to visit the lovely Valdemar's Castle. Have a game of mini golf and enjoy the view, or continue the trip to Langeland. Another option is to sail to the island Ærø with the unique maritime atmosphere and quaint little beach houses.
Day 4 SVENDBORG - FAABORG (B) The route from Svendborg to Faaborg is one of the most beautiful stretches on the island. Stunning views over the South Funen Archipelago and soft hills lead you past manor houses, romantic half-timbered houses and small villages. The sea has always played an important role in this area, and many cities have proud maritime and trading traditions and a thriving culture. Faaborg is a charming city and the goal for your tour today.
Day 5 FAABORG - NYBORG (B) Outside Faaborg you will find the "Svanninge Bakker", a hilly, woody area also referred to as "The Funen Alps" (128 m). Despite the nickname, the hills are soft and offers a great view from the top. At Brobyværk the first weapons factory in Denmark was established in 1648 and here the landscape changes character into a more even plain. You end in Odense – the capital of Funen and birthplace of the world famous poet Hans Christian Andersen, whose fairytale spirit still reigns the streets of his city. Finish with the train to Nyborg. Tour ends upon arrival.
