The charming town of Kerteminde used to be Fyn’s most important harbor town and today the fishing harbor still plays an important role in the town’s life.

Take a stroll through the little cobble stone streets with the many small town houses, each with their own individual romantic charm. 

On your way to Kerteminde we recommend stopping at a charming Danish Inn to enjoy a coffee or lunch before continuing your bike tour. From the Inn's terrace you have a fantastic view to the sea.

The statue of the fisher girl ‘Amanda’ located at Langebro is Kerteminde's landmark. In the narrow streets there are several protected strokes, and a building from 17th century houses the Kerteminde museum. Fiskergade is an example of a street with picturesque facades full of fantasy.

On your way back to Odense, stop at the Viking Museum Ladby to see the copy of the Ladby Viking ship. The original was Denmark’s only ship grave from the Viking period.
