winter weekends 

Cozy weekends await you

When it gets cold and dark outside, it is time to nestle indoors. Øhavsmuseet is now introducing “Winter Weekends” from November to February. Invite your family or friends to a museum, full of warmth and Danish hygge.



Children of the Sea welcome you!

We have collected children’s voices from the Stone Age to present times. Listen to their tales and stories about being a kid on an island in the Southern Funen Archipelago. You will find plenty to do, when you go ashore. Get our suggestions to fun activities for the whole familiy at the sign posts. Why not try hare-spotting or dam building?



Mammoth trail

Mount your mountain bike in the hills of Svanninge Bakker and explore our brand new Mammoth Trail.
A unique MTB tour that takes you along the trail of the ancient mammoths. Take a break at the listening posts to learn more about the majestic mammals and some of the first humans that roamed the area.


The Nix and the Elf-girl


”The Nix and the Elf-girl” is a new hiking trail with listening posts that takes people of the present into the myth and superstition of the past. The hike is targeted older children. The combination between magical nature and the encounter of mythical creatures such as Elf-girls and The Nix creates a fascinating and sometimes a bit creepy experience. It shows how our ancestors included the supernaturals into their daily lives.

Water’s Way

Invite your kids on a magical adventure to experience Denmark’s first hikes, especially designed for children. Try the big aquaplay to experiment with hydro power yourself and activate the listening post with their fun fact stories about water’s immense importance to all of us.

Start at the water mill Kaleko Mølle, the oldest in Denmark, and let the fun begin.



”Beneath the Ice” is a dramatised audio walk that plays whenever you choose. The setting is the beautiful countryside of Southern Funen.

In the company of the narrator and archeologist Sofie, you ascend from Faaborg into the hilly Ice Age landscape that cradles our picturesque town. Feel how your pulse quickens as you walk upwards with a lovestruck Hans Christian Andersen in your ear. Smell the pine forest as his beloved Riborg Voigt reads from their correspondence. And let yourself be captivated by the gentle hills that have mesmerized the famous painters Anne and Fritz Syberg.
