Climbing Park, museum on nature and a church ruin are three good reasons to take the stage between Svendborg and Faaborg.

Take a closer look at the stage on the map below. Zoom in and find manor houses, Bike Stations and Bike Friends near the route.

Further down the page you can fin inspiration for experiences along the route.

The stage is 42 km and has some good climbs at Faaborg. The stage is mainly paved road.

In Diernæs near Faaborg you will also find the beautiful Holstenshuus Manor House, where you can relax in the park. The estate originated from the now disappeared village of Finnstrup, of which only a few houses and the only church ruin of Fyn remain.

You will also find Denmark's oldest watermill on the trip between Svendborg and Faaborg, Kaleko Watermill. The watermill is located on the outskirts of Faaborg. If you need an overnight-stay in Faaborg, we can recommend Hotel Faaborg.


Are you more into digital navigation than following signs along the way? Fear not - You can download the route as a GPX-file for your navigation, or see the route on the map above. Luckily, the route has signs the entire way, so you can easily drive without navigation.
