Stage 2

SOUTH FYN, TÅSINGE, SIØ, LANGELAND, LOLLAND – HARBOUR LIFE IN SVENDBORG – CREATIVE SHOPS AND MUSIC VENUES – CULINARY SOUTH FYN – TALL BRIDGES CROSSING THE SOUTH FYN ARCHIPELAGO – VALDEMAR’S CASTLE – TRANEKÆR CASTLE – HAT HILLS AND WILD HORSES
SVENDBORG – NAKSKOV

As you start Stage 2 in Svendborg, you ride along the Baltic Sea Cycle Route across the Svendborg Sound Bridge to Tåsinge. Here you can have a little rest at Vindebyøre and take delight in the beautiful views across the sound. The next stop is Troense and the impressive Valdemar’s Castle that sits majestically, on the water’s edge. From Tåsinge you continue towards Siø and on to Langeland, which offers a world of outdoor activities like diving, pleasure fishing, walking and sailing.

The largest town is Rudkøbing, where you can learn all about the 10,000-year-old history of the island at the Museum of Langeland. Should you fancy a 10km detour, then venture north to experience Tranekær Castle and the wild horses on Flådet.

In Stengade Skov near Spodsbjerg, you can see the beech tree where the poet Adam Oehlenschläger was inspired, in the start of the 1800s, to write the Danish National Anthem ‘Det er et yndigt land’ which means ‘It is a beautiful country’. In Spodsbjerg you catch the ferry to Tårs on the island of Lolland. The journey takes 45 minutes, so there is plenty of time to rest before exploring Lolland.

Should you wish to start Stage 2 with Nakskov as the starting point and Svendborg as the finish, it is possible from there, to take Stage 1 to Ærø, Stage 9 to Korsør or Stage 10 to Faaborg and Assens

TOWN OF SVENDBORG

The harbour town of Svendborg rests in Svendborg Sound. Spend some time in one of the excellent eateries near the harbour, enjoy some shopping in the old, idyllic streets and consider whether to take your adventure even further with some island hopping around the south Fyn Archipelago. From Svendborg, you can jump on the ferry to the tiny islands of Skarø, Drejø and Hjortø and to the charming island of Ærø. Svendborg is a town full of spirit – creative, cultural and entrepreneurial. You sense this in the many music venues in the town, as well as all the festivals that can be enjoyed throughout the year, such as the food festival ‘Culinary South Fyn’.

Don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful old buildings as you meander through the town. Check out Svendborg’s oldest church, founded in the beginning of the 13th Century. You’ll be missing out if you don’t take a walk down to Frederiksø, once a thriving shipyard. These days, it is home to a creative community of small maritime and cultural businesses, with informal cafés and meeting places.
