Funen (Fyn) is Denmark's second largest island, situated between the island of Zealand and mainland Denmark (Jutland). It is a fantastic place to go if you want a holiday in 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 South Funen Archipelago, just south of Funen, is a great place to explore, with islands of many sizes and beautiful straits, bays and inlets. You can drive to Funen over the Great Belt Bridge from Zealand and the Little Belt Bridge from Jutland. Small bridges and ferry routes link you to the South Funen Archipelago. The city of Odense, as well as being the largest on Funen, is the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, one of Denmark’s best loved authors. If you’re planning a holiday to Denmark, make sure you see Funen.
