The Market Town of Assens

This unspoiled market town has a proud maritime history. From the Middle Ages onwards to the opening of the old Lillebælt Bridge in the 20th Century, Assens was the primary crossing route from Fyn to Schleswig, and therefore a lively hub of activity between Copenhagen and Hamburg. Its varied history can also be seen if you wander into ‘The Church of Our Lady’ in Assens, which is Fyn’s second-largest church. Visit the Museum of West Fyn and take a guided evening tour through 19th Century Assens.
