Stage 11

LILLEBÆLT AND WEST FYN – BENDS, BAYS AND FJORDS - BRIDGEWALKING LILLEBÆLT – SPECTACULAR VIEWS – WHALE SAFARI FROM THE OLD PORT IN MIDDELFART – HINDSGAVL PENINSULA NATURE RESERVE – EVENING WALKS IN ASSENS’ PAST – TROLLEY CYCLING – CLAY CERAMIC MUSEUM
ASSENS – MIDDELFART

The town of Assens is absolutely worth exploring so before you go further along Stage 11, have a good look around. The beautiful ‘Church of Our Lady’ is a must. The harbour is still a thriving, maritime community, and the old town is wonderfully atmospheric. From Assens you ride north towards Aborg Strand (beach), a perfect place to rest, with benches and tables to sit at. To extend your rest time a little, pop by the beach at Sandager Næs, for a quick dip. On your way to Middelfart, you stay close to the south-westerly coast, making your way over to Føns Strand, Ronæs Bridge and Svinø.

Before entering the centre of Middelfart, make a quick detour and ride around Hindsgavl Peninsula, one of the most stunning coastal regions in Denmark with a nature reserve and castle ruins from the 13th century, that sit right on the water’s edge.

Reach for the sky in Middelfart with Bridgewalking on top of the old Lillebælt Bridge. There are beaches, a vibrant town life to enjoy. If you would rather explore Middelfart from the water, embark on a Whale Safari on Lillebælt.

It is also possible to start Stage 11 in Middelfart and ride in the opposite direction, to Assens – from here you continue onto Stage 10.

BRIDGEWALKING LILLEBÆLT

You can go to Sydney or Lillebælt. At both these places you can, if you dare, walk on top of a bridge and enjoy the spectacular and unimpeded view and even enjoy the sinking feeling in your stomach as a train rattles beneath you. With Bridgewalking Lillebælt you are taken on a guided walking tour, 60 meters high, on the old Lillebælt Bridge. Safety is, of course, a priority, as is the view! As you walk, your tour guide will tell you all about the architecture of the bridge, its history, how it was built and the sights around the area of Lillebælt. When the tour is over, there are plenty of opportunities to relax, play and picnic, near the Information Centre.
