Anglers head to Funen for some of Europe's best coastal angling spots, particular good for catching sea trout. You’ll find great locations for angling on both Funen and the South Funen Archipelago.
Funen is a green and fertile island with many orchards producing not only wonderful fruit but also delicious juice. You can often buy farm produce directly from the source, at roadside booths, a particular characteristic of Funen.
Odense is Funen's main city and the third largest city in Denmark. It is first and foremost the birthplace and childhood home of fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen, and you can experience his world in two of the city's museums.

The South Funen Archipelago is often viewed as a whole island group, but the many islands within the archipelago are diverse and offer their own unique experiences. They do have a number of things in common, however, such as peaceful nature, cosy villages and quaint harbours.
The lovely, sloping South Funen landscape is at its picturesque best between the towns of Svendborg and Faaborg. North of Faaborg, you find the rolling Svanninge Hills (Svanninge Bakker) with steep ravines resulting from the last glacial period, around 14,000 years ago.
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.
