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 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.
