Svendborg Vacation Packages
The waterfront city of Svendborg charms visitors with pretty harbor views, cobblestone streets, historic houses and a bustling center. Explore the excellent maritime museum, take a cruise on the water and learn about life on the sea.
Meander down old narrow lanes to spot historic manor houses. Stroll to the water’s edge, pass the shipyards and look out at the picturesque port to see boats bobbing on the water. Svendborg Harbour is one of Denmark’s busiest bays during peak season.
Inside the old warehouse on the wharf is the highly regarded Maritimt Center. During the summer, the center is a hive of activity. Listen to live music, browse popular markets, explore the warehouse shop, see exhibits and stop for an al fresco lunch at one of the cafés. Take the popular cruise to the South Funen Archipelago on a historic wooden ship.
Explore Tåsinge and Thurø in the Funen island cluster, both of which are accessible from the mainland.
