Garden of Denmark
Funen and Islands, characterized by orchards, rolling hills, and quaint, thatched farmhouses, serves as the country's second-largest island and a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Separated from the surrounding 90 islands by numerous bays and inlets, much of the region's charm comes from the bridges, ferries, boats, and kayaks that are used to travel between the islands. Birthplace of the legendary fairy-tale author Hans Christian Andersen, the region features a museum dedicated to his life and work nestled alongside beautiful historic manor houses and castles. You'll also find roads featuring charming pedestrian crossing lights inspired by the Andersen's stories here. Be sure to explore the nation's only Viking ship grave to learn more about the area's rich history, and take advantage of the shopping and nightlife on the islands.
