Ferritslev offers great opportunities to see Odense (15 minutes by car), Copenhagen (1½ hour), the sea (20 minutes) and the wonderful landscape surrounding Ferritslev. Next to Ferritslev there is a coherent protected landscape zone along with Vindinge Å. Near Ferritslev you can visit Davinde natural and recreational area. The area was an agricultural landscape with gravel extraction and has evolved into a lake landscape with very varied scenery. South and west of Ferritslev lies a wooded area while the rest of the surrounding area is farmland.
Odense is the unofficial capital and largest city on the island of Fyn in Denmark. As Denmark's third-largest city, it offers the traveller a mixture of an exciting vibrant night-life, beautiful street-scapes, great shopping opportunities & a rich cultural heritage.

Hans Christian Andersen Museum, Bangs Boder 29.
A museum dedicated to the city's most famous son, author and poet Hans Christian Andersen, most famous for his fairy tales and in particular The Ugly Duckling and the Little Mermaid. Part of the museum is located in the house where Andersen was supposedly born (though he would never confirm it). The impressive collection is mainly documents from his life and times, period furniture, and many drawings and paper clippings he is famous for at home.
There are lots of fairy-tale adventures to be found on Fyn, Langeland and Ærø. For example you can take part in a real fairy-tale at Fyrtøjet ("The Tinder Box") - a children's cultural centre, situated right next to Hans Christian Andersen's House. You can listen to a fairy-tale, dress up, write your own fairy story, paint or draw, or even compose some music.
Some of the attractions within driving distance:
Legoland (www.legoland.dk). Further introduction is probably not necessary.
Nature & animals. Many of the attractions focus on animals in various exciting ways. At the Fjord&Bælt in Kerteminde you can, for example, walk on the bottom of the sea without getting your feet wet, through a 50 m long tunnel. From here you can observe the marine life at close quarters and maybe even meet the Danish dolphin - the harbour porpoise. Naturama is a big new attraction on Fyn - Spectacular natural history for children and adults alike.
On The Water. The seafaring history of Fyn stretches far back in time, as is evident from a visit to the harbours. From the water here, you can view delightful sandy beaches backed by expanses of old beech woods, steep cliffs and stretches of green meadows, and mansions and villas built right next to the sea. Hundreds of islands, coves, bays, sounds, sandbanks, runs and belts, dappled with white sails and providing all kinds of delightful places to moor. If you would like to experience all this and more, and if you are itching to go sailing under canvas and feel the breath of history on an old schooner or ketch, contact the Maritime Centre to book a holiday with a difference or a wonderful day-trip on the water.
The land of a hundred manors. The countryside of Fyn is a treasure trove of well-maintained relics of the past. Nowhere else in Denmark offers the same density of manor houses as Fyn, Langeland and Ærø. In all there are 123 manors and castles, and their extensive fields, woods, avenues and stone walls are a defining feature of the landscape.
