ON BIKE We live on the island of Thurø, some distance away from town, so we have bicycles for our guests. Then we take the ride across the dam and along the Christiansminde Path to Svendborg. It is a spectacular ride with great views of the strait and the entrance to the city. Once we have arrived at the harbour, we leave our bikes, take a stroll and look at all the ships. TROELS MYLENBERG Editor-in-chief of the newspapers Jysk Fynske Medier SARAH SMED Head of Outreach at Danmarks Forsorgsmuseum (Danish Welfare Museum) MUSIC I bring my guests to Kammerateriet to hear music and soak up the great vibe. The venue is located in an old shipyard building on Frederiksø and represents the things that make Svendborg special: a warm and fun atmosphere and the willingness to use the town’s historical buildings in new and exciting ways. TIME FOR REFLECTION Naturally, my guests have to visit the poorhouse. It is a historical treasure and there is no place like it in the Nordic countries. Learning how the less fortunate have been treated throughout history makes you emotional and is a cause for reflection, also regarding how we organise society today. FOOD WITH AN ATTITUDE We also go and get something nice to eat. I bring my guests to Carlos Kitchen in Møllergade. Here, the experience is not limited to what is served on your plate. Besides being a great eatery making an amazing burger, the restaurant is a social project helping a group of youths get back on track. I have the utmost respect for the eort the restaurant is making. GO SURFING Thurø Rev is an essential experience when visiting Svendborg. You can go for a walk on the beach with the wind in your hair – or go surfing! I won’t reveal the exact location of my favourite spot though. It’s nothing but a corner of a field, right by the beach where we keep our surfboards. We often go there to picnic and play around in the water. There are plenty of similar spots along the water, so you just need to find your very own!
