Probably one of Denmark’s most well-preserved cities. Located on Ærø. Ferry connection from Faaborg. An incredibly pleasant experience.

The islands

Bjørnø, Avarnakø, Lyø, Ærø and Als – all connected from Faaborg.

The island path

Is a newly constructed footpath from Falsled to Spodsbjerg in Langeland. Right around here, it is something quite special. It is built through the rough area along Svanninge Bakker. Supported by Åge V Jensen’s and Bikuben’s foundations, which have bought large areas laid out for conservation and public use, which makes it a very special experience. It can be recommended to make a mini-holiday on that basis alone. On the 1st day, you can take the Odense bus to Svanninge Bakker and go home to Faaborg, then you will pass through many previously untouched areas – approx. 7 km. The second day from Fjellebroen to Faaborg. The path goes right into the middle of the city. An experience completely out of the ordinary if you are into walks.
