    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My husband and I love to travel ourselves. We have always felt beriched by the cultural diversity, we have experienced when travelling the World. When we are not on the move ourselves, we like to open our home to other travellers, and give them a local experience. Maybe we can teach you a bit about organic farming, and show or guide you to the secret spots in the area of Southern Fünen.

    In your spartime there are lots of beatiful and peaceful walking trails with stunning views on the Island where we live. Also it is easy to bike along the beautiful waterfront, or take the bus, into the town of Svendborg. In there you'll find lots of activities. There are often music venues at the local bars and cafes at night. There are several museums, a cinema and two Theaters and there is a very charming old shopping street. Also you can easily reach some of the bigger danish turist attractions from here. Egeskov castle is a short drive, Valdemars Castle you reach with the cute veteran ferry from Svendborg. There are many more castles and mansions around here. A 45 min trainride will take you to Odense, the birthplace and home of Hans Christian Andersen.
