Fyn is fine! What to visit:
Funen (Fyn) is Denmark’s second largest island, situated between the island of Zealand and mainland Denmark (Jutland).
It is a fantastic place to go if you want a holiday in Denmark. You can instantly see why it is called Denmark’s garden island, with its gently rolling hills, orchards, hedgerows and thatched, half-timbered farmhouses.
Funen is a lush, rolling island and a great place to head out into the green on a bike. It’s also surrounded by an archipelago of beautiful small islands, wonderful for exploring by boat or kayak.
The South Funen Archipelago, just south of Funen, is a great place to explore, with islands of many sizes and beautiful straits, bays and inlets. You can drive to Funen over the Great Belt Bridge from Zealand and the Little Belt Bridge from Jutland. Small bridges and ferry routes link you to the South Funen Archipelago. The city of Odense, as well as being the largest on Funen, is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, one of Denmark’s best loved authors. If you’re planning a holiday to Denmark, make sure you see Funen.
You will find Odense nestled on Denmark’s garden island. Hans Christian Andersen put Denmark on the world map through his fantastical 19th century fairy tales. At the Hans Christian Andersen Museum, you can form a strong impression of the writer as a person as well as the world he lived in. You can also visit his childhood home, see his sketchings and papercuts and take a Hans Christian Andersen guided tour of the city.
Odense hosts the Odense International Film Festival each year. It’s also home to a popular zoo and museums and art galleries, such as Funen’s Art Museum (Fyns Kunstmuseum) and Art Gallery Brandts.
