Funen, Denmark

The Funen Village near Odense, Denmark (cc)


Funen (Fyn in Danish) is the name of the island and county right in the middle of Denmark between Jutland and Sealand. The island is known as the garden of Denmark and one of the best times to visit is in the spring when cherry and apple trees are blossoming, covering the island in a sea of pink and white.

The county of Funen has approximately 90 smaller islands in addition to the main island, which is the second-biggest in Denmark after Sealand. Odense, in the north, is the capital, with 190,000 people, which makes it the third-biggest city in Denmark. The northern part of Funen is flat while the southern part is a little hillier and has the majority of Funen’s 90 islands to the south. These islands are popular destinations for vacationers in the summer. The two biggest are Ærø and Langeland which technically belong to the county of Funen but, due to their sizes, are often mentioned separately.
