As well as great beaches around the coast of Funen itself, the South Funen Archipelago also offers great opportunities for swimming. Since the distances are short between beaches, it’s never far to your own quiet bit of beach.

On the island of Læsø out in the Kattegat, you can access large stretches of untouched nature and the island is almost entirely circled by wide beaches, with seal colonies and other wildlife.
Where two seas meet
In Denmark, these world-famous sticky delights are called Vienna Bread (wienerbrød), as they were first made in Denmark in 1840 by Viennese chefs. Still, Danish pastries rose in popularity over the centuries and are now a firm favourite of ordinary Danes.
