Svendborg with the islands of Tåsinge, Thurø, Drejø, Skarø and Hjortø are among the most popular Danish spots. And no wonder.
Svendborg is the second biggest town on Funen and the natural centre for both locals and visitors on South Funen and in the archipelago. Svendborg has preserved its old heart with its narrow lanes, squares and attractive courtyards.
Svendborg’s history goes back to early Middle Ages, Medieval Svendborg was a thriving town with trading, crafts and shipping and surrounded by sheltering walls and moats. In the late Middle Ages Svendborg featured among the most important trading towns in Scandinavia. In the 19th century Svendborg grew to be one of Denmark’s most important seafaring towns.
Today’s Svendborg is a unique mix of old and new, of atmosphere and the heartbeat of our time.
