The route has many good things to offer. Discover the green embankment around Nyborg Castle, enjoy Holckenhavn Castle and Broholm Castle, take a dip at Lundeborg Harbour and taste gourmet in a class of its own. Fyn is lovely! 

This atmospheric town Nyborg, with a castle and a vibrant town life, is 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. Take a trip to the romantic Broholm Castle – book a room and live like a prince or princess for a night. 

Storebælt Bridge

Seen from afar, the bridge over Storebælt, is an impressive sight, as it connects Sjælland to Fyn. The pylons on the East Bridge are 254m high, some of the tallest structures in Denmark. The span between the Pylons is 1624m long and makes the East Bridge between Sjælland and Sprogø the longest suspension bridge in Europe. The bridge opened for train traffic in 1997 and cars in 1998. It consists of two bridges and a tunnel, which together spans 18km. 

The market town of Nyborg

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 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. For more information go to
