You will be amazed by the many beautiful well-preserved half-timbered houses from the village’s heyday in the 18th century, when most of the male population were sailors or ship builders.


Follow the route down the old tree alley to Valdemar Castle. Here you can stop for a coffee and visit the  manor house museum. Enjoy the beautiful views to the sea from the beach or tea paviion.


Jump on the vintage ship "Helge" to the island of Thuro.

Explore the island of Taasinge - 27,6 km

Cycle to the southern part of Taasinge. Cycle through open farm land and visit a farmer's shop selling local organic produce. On your way you will pass the special stone house Lille Vejlegarden, which was once the home of local progressive farmer Soren Lolk, and now one of the most photographed houses in the South Funen area.


On the southern point of Taasinge you will pass a large meadow rich in birdlife. From the bird tower, you can spot geese, ducks and waders nesting in the area.


Take a break in Lundby, and if you haven't yet tasted the famous Danish hotdog, you might want to stop at Steff's Place, the local hotdog van before heading back to your hotel.

Cycle across the islands of Taasinge and Sio to the town of Rudkobing, the main town on island of Langeland.


Exlore the small coble stone streets with charming town houses, shops, art galleries and cafes.

If you are up for a longer bike ride you can follow the roundtrip route from Rudkobing into the countryside across Langeland, past the impressive Faarevejle manor house, to the small fishing town of Spodsbjerg with its popular childfriendly beach, marina and ferry harbour.
