The island of Ærø is beautifully situated in the heart of the South Funen Archipelago like a pearl.
Ærø, with its fantastic nature and charming urban communities, large and small, which lie along the coasts, but also in the countryside. On the east side of the island, Marstal: the cozy maritime town with a unique harbor environment, but also many shops. Marstal is also Ærø's largest city.
In the middle of the island, still on the coast, you´ll find Ærøskøbing, and here lies Badehotel Harmonien.
Ærøskøbing is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Denmark. In 2002 Ærøskøbing was awarded with the prestigious Europa Nostra award for the preservation of European cultural heritage. The city is pure idyllic, with the climbing roses at almost each corner, the well-preserved houses with the many fine details, and not least, the entire old town, covered with topped cobblestones.
Museums, small shops, beaches, and delicious restaurants can easily fill in your entire day and evening spent in Ærøskøbing.
In the western part of the island is Søby, a real fishing and shipyard town. Søby is situated on the tip of the island, and it is a small community, with many enthusiasts having a strong unity. It is a charming area with an incredible fauna; one of the great experiences is Vitsø lake, with paths, here you can see fishing herons, and an incredible variety of plants.
Five km from Søby, there is also the golf course, 18 hole golf course, with a breathtaking view of the entire south Funen archipelago. If you are interested in golf it is a huge experience and at the same time a challenging link path.
Besides the three main towns, there are a wealth of small towns, the larger small towns are distributed on the ridge of the island, but a bike ride via the "magurite route" is a truly fantastic experience. Experience the Ærøske "alps" nature park and charming farms and paddocks along the route. There are many experiences, artisans, small shops, among others.
