Other ports

Korsør
The charming coastal city of Korsør in the Great Belt was founded in 1241 and has always been a strategically and commercially important crossing point between the islands of Funen and Zealand. It is accessible directly from the T-route in the middle of the Great Belt, next to the Great Belt Bridge.

Odense
The city of Odense is Denmark’s 3rd-largest city and the largest city on the island of Funen. It is one of the oldest cities in Denmark and birthplace of Denmark’s famous fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen. It is accessible by sea through the Odense Fjord, a few hours’ sail from the T-route, and the 5 km long Odense Canal that takes ships directly into the city (certain size and draft restrictions apply here). 

Svendborg
The town of Svendborg is a small town with strong maritime traditions of shipping and shipbuilding (the Maersk shipping empire originated here) and is the second-largest town on the island of Funen after Odense. It is accessible from the Great Belt and the Baltic Sea via Svendborgsund. The historic city center is well preserved with narrow meandering streets, market squares and historic landmarks.

Faaborg
Faaborg on the South coast of Funen enjoys a picturesque location at the bottom of Faaborg Fjord and is an important ferry hub to many of the nearby islands in the South Funen Archipelago. It is accessible from the Great Belt and the Baltic Sea through the South Funen Archipelago. The idyllic old town is very well-preserved with half-timbered houses and narrow cobblestone streets lined with hollyhock.

Ærøskøbing
Picturesque Ærøskøbing is the main town on the island of Ærø and is the smallest market town in Denmark. It is accessible from the Great Belt and the Baltic Sea through the South Funen Archipelago. The old town of Ærøskøbing is extraordinarily well-preserved and looks as if lifted straight out of the 17th century – a reason why Ærøskøbing was awarded the Europa Nostra prize in 2002.

Fredericia
The town of Fredericia is tucked away inside the Little Belt between Jutland and Funen and is one of Denmark’s largest traffic hubs, due to its central location. It is accessible from Kattegat through the Little Belt. The town was originally conceived as a military fortress, as evidenced by the chessboard-pattern street layout and a set of well-preserved 16th century fortification walls encircling the old town.

Esbjerg
The port of Esbjerg is one of Denmark’s largest ports and one of the few on the Danish West Coast able to receive docking cruise ships. It is accessible from the North Sea through the Grådyb passage. The city of Esbjerg is fairly young and utilitarian – having been established as late as 1868 as an industrial port - but it is a convenient gateway to the many wonderful sights and experiences of Southern and Central Jutland.

Svaneke
Svaneke is Denmark’s easternmost town and one of the smallest market towns, dating back to 13th century. It is directly accessible from the Baltic Sea. Svaneke features a very well-preserved town center with quaint red-roofed, yellow lime-washed, half-timbered houses lining the narrow streets, which earned it the European Architectural Heritage Gold Medal as early as 1975. The town is also a center for arts and crafts with everything from glassblowing to ceramics, not to mention a couple of small sweet factories and a popular mini-brewery.
