Faaborg is one of the oldest provincial towns in Denmark. The medieval bell-tower soars above the many well preserved townhouses, with their yellow walls and red tile roofs.
The town turns its smiling Funen face towards the sea and the South Funen archipelago. Hotel Færgegaarden, it to yellow and red, is an old, but recently fully renovated hotel which for almost 150 years has been a meeting place for booth local citizens and travellers, including many artists. Situated down by the harbour the hotel has 15 rooms. The elegant restaurant offers high-quality menus, and in the historic taproom, decorated by old Faaborg painters.
