VisitSvendborg / SvendborgEvent

The staff at the tourist office represent many aspects of tourism in Svendborg. Besides functioning as the town’s tourist office, we help organise many of the town’s events as part of SvendborgEvent. We are also part of Maritimt Center Danmark, which serves as the booking agency for the town’s impressive old wooden ships. And finally, we perform secretarial functions for the organisations  Svendborg Shopping and Svendborg Turistforening.

Since we cover a wide range of tourism-related functions, you can visit the tourist office to:

Funen is called the cycling island because of the 1200 km of signposted cycle routes in the beautiful and versatile landscape. Visit the well-preserved market towns, the 123 castles and manor houses and be tempted by local food and sublime restaurants - all surrounded by a sea of 100 islands.

Odense is filled with beautiful parks, romantic gardens and recreational areas such as outdoor fitness playgrounds.

On Funen you get good ingredients, meat from happy animals, locally brewed beer and wine, characteristic cheeses and exquisite specialties that can be enjoyed on one of the culinary routes or on one of the cozy food markets.

In addition to Odense, which is Funen's largest city, you will find cozy towns such as Svendborg, Nyborg, Kerteminde, Bogense and Middelfart.
