Denmark - Funen (Chapter)
This is the Funen chapter from Lonely Planet’s Denmark guidebook.
Funen (Fyn in Danish) is Denmark’s proverbial middle child. Lacking Zealand’s capital-city pull or Jutland’s geographic dominance, it’s often overlooked by visitors, who perhaps make a whistle-stop visit to Hans Christian’s Andersen’s birthplace and museum in the island’s capital, Odense.
- explore Egeskov Slot, a moat-encircled castle with a garden full of mazes, museums and marvels
- immerse yourself in the fairy-tale world of Hans Christian Andersen in Odense
- visit Denmark’s only Viking Age ship grave, Vikingemuseet Ladby, the last resting place of a 10th-century chieftain
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Odense, Around Funen, Kerteminde, Ladby, Egeskov Slot, Faaborg, Svendborg, Tåsinge, Langeland, Rudkøbing, Northern Langeland, Southern Langeland, Ærø, Ærøskøbing, Marstal, Søby.
