Visit Odense Fjord

Photo: Kurt Due

Odense Fjord is always beautiful, and did you know that you can hike or bike along the coast from Odense to Enebærodde? Discover Odense Fjord from Klintebjerg to Enebærodde and enjoy the unique nature.

Odense Fjord is big, beautiful and full of life and activities. Take a bike ride along the trails and enjoy the beautiful view, go for a nice walk on Enebærodde that separates Odense Fjord from Kattegat, eat ice cream at Klintebjerg Harbour, take the kayak out to Vigelsø, the largest island in Odense Fjord, look for birds at the beautiful nature reserve Ølundgård-Lammesø or look at boats at Otterup Marina Harbour Egensedybet.

Odense Fjord was once much larger than it is today. But thanks to land reclamation projects such as at Ølund 200 years ago, which was the largest containment of the time, the fjord has changed. You can read about the enclosures in the small museum Fjordmarkens Formidlingshus.

Every year the fjord is celebrated at Fjord Day Fjordens Dag with lots of activities at Klintebjerg and Egensedybet on the second Sunday in September. But Odense Fjord is worth a visit every day - see you out there!
