Funen

Idyllic and Historic Danish Countryside

Denmark's Garden Island

Funen (Fyn in Danish) is Denmark's second largest island, situated between the island of Zealand and mainland Denmark. You can instantly see why it is called Denmark’s garden island, with its gently rolling hills, orchards, hedgerows and thatched, half-timbered farmhouses. The main city of Odense is Denmark's third-largest city and is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, one of Denmark’s best loved authors, while the Funen countryside hosts countless farms, historical sites like Egeskov Castle, and the scenic South Funen Archepelago. If you’re planning a holiday to Denmark, Funen is a great place to see something new.
