Attractions Elsewhere in Funen:

          Castles (like Egeskov Slot, Europe's best-preserved moated Renaissance castle), palaces, and great manor houses; Funen Village open-air museum of local agriculture; charming fishing villages; prehistoric sites with Viking and Bronze Age artifacts; beaches of pebbles (shingles), and golden and white sand. Most offshore islands are connected to the Funen mainland with road bridges but a few require ferry journeys to reach. Of these, the island of Aeroe (Ærø) has gained international famed in recent years for becoming largely energy self-sufficiency while remaining an undisturbed destination of beaches, villages, and cycling lanes.

Getting to/from the Region:

         Drive your Rental Car east to Funen via a short crossing from WESTERN DENMARK on the European mainland or across the Great Belt Bridge from Copenhagen and EASTERN DENMARK; International Flights to/from Copenhagen's International Airport, Danish Rail to Odense.

Our Lodgings: Ideally located small hotels in Odense and south of the city in the rural center of Funen island.

Getting around
            Odense & Funen:

          Central Odense is very walkable, but getting to other parts of the city will require visitors to use its subway, buses, and trams.

          Outside of Odense use of a rental car permits far greater flexibility and independence for touring the Danish countryside — especially for those wanting to stop and enjoy the scenery, and explore small, out-of-the-way places. Car ferries provide frequent access to certain popular offshore islands, such as Aeroe.
