Denmark's Garden Island

Fyn: The Island Home of Hans Christian Andersen

Fyn (also known as Funen) is Denmark's second largest island, situated between the island of Zealand and mainland Denmark. You can instantly see why it is called Denmark’s garden island, with its gently rolling hills, orchards, hedgerows and thatched, half-timbered farmhouses. The main city of Odense is Denmark's third-largest city and is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, one of Denmark’s best-loved authors, while the Funen countryside hosts countless farms, historical sites like Egeskov Castle, and the scenic South Fyn Archipelago. If you’re planning a holiday to Denmark, Fyn is a great place to see something new.
