Faaborg

The city name “Foburgh” which is believed to mean “the castle of the fox”, is mentioned for the first time in the year 1229, where King Valdemar the victorious presented Faaborg as a gift to his Portuguese daughter-in-law, Princess Eleonora. The old merchant’s city still has its original small and cosy streets that provide a glorious setting for a wide variety of shopping possibilities. And it is certainly worthwhile to explore all the specialised shops.

The nature areas Svanninge Hills (Svanninge Bakker) and Svanninge Mountains (Svanninge Bjerge), the South Funen Archipelago with the small Islands, Egeskov Castle, the Archipelago Trail and the different kinds of museums within culture, history and art give you a wide range of possibilities for activating everyone.
