This atmospheric town, with a castle and a vibrant town life, is also home to several child-friendly beaches.

Enjoy the atmosphere in Nyborg Marina and stop just south of the town centre to admire Holckenhavn Castle. As you move further south, you can choose to stop for refreshments or stay overnight by Bøsøre Strand Holiday Park. Next stop is Hesselagergård – something straight out of a fairy tale. From here there are only a few kilometres to Lundeborg, a charming little fishing village, which was once a great market place in the Iron Age.

Take a trip to the romantic Broholm Castle – book a room and live like a prince or princess for a night. Near Svendborg, you might like to visit Skårupøre Vineyard if you are thirsty or just a little bit inquisitive. It is the perfect place to take a rest before you finish the stage in Svendborg.

If you ride in the opposite direction on Stage 9 towards Svendborg as the starting point, ride on towards Korsør and then further on, on Stage 8 towards Næstved.

Highlights from stage 9

Marked på Nyborg Slot

The market town of Nyborg

Did you know that Nyborg was Denmark’s very first capital city? With this in mind, it makes complete sense that Nyborg Castle is the home to Denmark’s oldest, most well-preserved castle, owned by a king, dating back to 1170. The castle played an important role in the Middle Ages, which is easy to imagine, when you walk along the embankments, admiring the castle that is currently being beautifully restored.

The town’s church, ‘Our Lady’s Church’, is from the 14th Century and is absolutely worth a visit. In the summer you can watch a play in Denmark’s oldest Open Air Theatre.

If you plan your trip around the first weekend of July, the town transforms into one from the Middle Ages, courtesy of the traditional Danehof Market.
