A Lovely Day Out on Langeland Island
Enjoy the island of Langeland located just south of Funen. A guided coach tour with appropriate stops for guided walks. Beautiful and varied nature, captivating stories and the atmospheric characteristics of Langeland. Some call it hygge.
We'll either meet at Rudkøbing station or another desired spot. From there, we'll take a short city walk in the cosy cobblestone alleys of Rudkøbing. You'll hear about its famous citizens, among which, H.C. Ørsted and Mads Lange.
Afterwards we'll take a coach into the countryside, to take in the beautiful rolling landscape of Langeland, unique among Danish islands with its dolmens and characteristic hill shapes.
After that, we'll pass King Humble's tomb and head towarsd Ristinge's gorgeous cliffs and exciting history. We'll pass the Cold War Museum on our way to Dovn's cliffs, from which, on a bright day, we can catch a glimpse of the islands wild horses striding by.
From the southern tip of the island we'll traverse the countryside up to the idyllic villages surrounding Tranekær castle in the north. Along the way we'll pass Denmark's last surviving tobacco barn, which has been turned into a mini-museum.
In Tranekær I'll tell you about the beautiful red castle on the hill and its noble family's history. If you would like to drink a cup of coffee in the castle's lovely horse stable or have a bite to eat on the way, this should be ordered in advance: just ask the office and we'll take care of it.
A guided tour on Langeland can easily be combined with a tour on the island of Tåsinge if you wish to extend your tour with 2 hours.
