Thorø is a small peninsula of about 125 acres of land. It is located near the charming fishing hamlet of Thorøhuse, itself a few kilometres south of Assens.
Thorø is only accessible on foot. You can park in Thorøhuse at the Thorøhuse Forsamlingshus. The footbridge to Thorø is located very close to here.
The peninsula is renowned for its lovely, undisturbed wildlife. A cross located on the peninsula’s western beach was erected by Harald Plum in 1928, in memory of three people (a man, woman and child), whose skeletons were found during a pebble excavation.
Thorø has been privately owned for a number of years, including by the local Plum family. Today, it is owned by the Danish Union of Teachers, which also owns three holiday homes on Thorø. Otherwise the peninsula is uninhabited. The beaches around the peninsula are open to the public, but you are asked to show consideration and use the paths.
