Travel to and from ...

Different as planned we took the train from Odense to Svendborg and back to Odense the day after.

Remarks

The ridden tour turned out a little different to the planned one. In stead of going alone I rode along with my friend Kolja, in stead of Tuesday to Thursday we stayed only one night (Wednesday to Thursday) and in stead of cycling all the way from Odense we took the train to Svendborg and cycled to Southern Langeland (the Langeland fort, the southern tip of Langeland and the town of Bagenkop) to the tent site at Skovsgaard. On the following day we visited Skovsgaard and cycled to Svendborg with a detour on the island of Taasinge and went back by train to Odense.

The museum for the servants at Skovsgaard

The basement and first floor of Skovsgaard is a museum for the servants. You can call it a reverse manor house museum, because the audience for once get to see how life was for the servants who lived in small rooms downstairs in the basement, while the masters had two floors with over 20 rooms available.
Walking around you go on the first floor through the landowner's study and his wife's perfumed bedroom. From there you go down the stairs to the basement, where you will meet maids in the process of doing their daily lives in the kitchens, and you see a lot of room for firewood and food, and may eventually look into the dark and somewhat filthy outdoor privy.

The Carriage Museum at Skovsgaard
The Carriage museum is housed in the old stables. There are about 25 work- and professional and private carriages in a natural setting: The bridal coach is drawn by an old Oldenborger horse in a street in Rudkobing in 1900, with building facades, paving, signs and street lamps; the bakery carriage stands on a courtyard in front of a small half-timbered and the sleighs in a winter landscape.
There are several other types of carriages and sleighs, and also a collection of the last private owner, Miss Ellen Fuglede's toys.

The Forestry Museum at Skovsgaard
The Forestry Museum describes the development of forestry seen with Langeland eyes, from about 1900 until the 1980s. Langeland has historically had good forestry and much forest has been owned by the estates, especially the county of Langeland. Today, State Forestry Administration island's major forest owner, and new forests are planted.

The Forestry Museum shows the development from the time when people went into the woods year round and where the trap ax, forest tilt jack and forest sledding and horse were the main tools to the present day, where forest contractors replaces forestry workers.

The exhibition has a section for children, where they can meet the forest troll and tell the story about the time when the magician bewitched maiden Ellen on Skovsgaard.

Tractor and Machine Collection at Skovsgaard.

The Association Langeland Tractor and Machine Collection exhibits tractors and agricultural machines fromt a bygone era in the development of agriculture. The exhibits are at least 35 years of age and have all driven in Denmark from new or used imported before 1980.

In connection with the exhibition there is established a workshop where members work with the repair and refurbishment of the old machines.

Svendborg (Danish pronunciation: [ˈsfɛnbɒːˀ]) is a town on the island ofFunen in south-central Denmark, and the seat of Svendborg Municipality. With a population of 26,672 (1 January 2014), Svendborg is Funen's second largest city. In 2000 Svendborg was declared "Town of the year" in Denmark, and in 2003 it celebrated its 750th anniversary as a market town. By road, Svendborg is located 195 kilometres (121 mi) southwest of Copenhagen, 44.2 kilometres (27.5 mi) south of Odense, and 28.5 kilometres (17.7 mi) south-southeast of Faaborg.

Svendborg is home to the “Naturama” museum, which holds a wide variety of stuffed animals from birds to bears. The largest container ship company in the world, A.P. Møller-Mærsk has its origins in Svendborg, in the "Villa Anna".

Vor Frue Kirke (Church of Our Lady) located on a hill north of the market square was established in the 13th century but was enlarged in the late Middle Ages with a Gothic chancel, transepts and tower. A spire was added in 1768. The oldest section is the red-brick, Romanesque nave. Today the church reflects the comprehensive restoration work undertaken by Ove Petersen in 1884. The altar, pulpit and other artefacts date from the 17th century.

Anne Hvide's House (Anne Hvides Gård), a two-storey, half-timbered building, is one of Svendborg's oldest houses. Anne Hvide, a widow of noble descent, had it built in 1560. It was used as an inn from 1837 to 1867. After being restored, it became the town museum in 1916. It still belongs to Svenborg Museum who use it for exhibitions on the history of Svendborg during the summer months.

Naturama, established in April 2005, is a natural history museum enhanced by means of various technological support features including light and sound, film, and expedition scenarios. It has a large collection of stuffed animals and birds in natural surroundings. A recent addition has been an exhibition depicting the world of spiders.

Svendborg contains a branch of the Odense University Hospital, Odense Universitetshospital - Svendborg Sygehus. It also contains the Svendborg Museum.

Attractions close to Svendborg include Egeskov, the best preserved Renaissance water castle in Europe,Valdemar's Castle on the nearby island of Tåsinge, and Hesselagergård, a historic manor to the north of Svendborg.
