Lundsgaard Woods

Lundsgaard Manor Estate lies on the outskirts of Kerteminde. The woods on the estate are open to the public. They stretch for several kilometres to the south of the town. This is a great place for long walks, enjoying peace and quiet and the scents of the forest.


You find Kerteminde’s Klinten Cliffs on the shoreline close to Lundsgaard Woods. You can hike on a narrow path that leads from the old harbour in Kerteminde along South Beach to the cliffs. There are impressive views from Klinten. Conditions here are ideal for snorkelling, diving and fishing.


Sybergland was originally a shallow fjord situated between Hindsholm and Funen. In 1812, the area was reclaimed for agriculture. In its early years, it primarily consisted of wet meadows, which attracted a multitude of birds. The area was a favored subject for the painter Frits Syberg and Johannes Larsen until the 1920s when the land was completely drained, and cereal fields took over.

In 2012, the area was reestablished, creating Sybergland, a natural area in Kerteminde close to the town, where nature is allowed to develop. Sybergland is open to the public, offering constructed paths for walking, picnic areas with benches and tables, shelter accommodations, and an opportunity to observe the diverse birdlife that has been restored in the two lakes.

Sybergland is named after the Funen painter Fritz Syberg (1862-1939), who lived in the area and drew inspiration for many of his paintings here.


The Hindsholm peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty that features rolling hills and small rural communities with well-kept, half-timbered cottages. At Viby, the rural village is so well preserved that the old farm buildings have changed very little in more than two centuries. Hindsholm is also very popular with anglers. The shores of the Great Belt Straits are some of Funen’s best fishing spots.

Fyns Hoved

Fyns Hoved is the point at the very tip of Hindsholm peninsular. This is one of Funen’s most beautiful natural landscapes. There are rare species of plants, cliffs, lagoons and rich fauna in the unique and unspoiled natural environment here. Park your car and walk all around the point. It is a fantastic natural experience.
