Things to do
-Hikes: The rugged landscape that covers this region invites visitors to pull on their boots and venture outdoors for lengthy walks. They can walk along the cliffs that delineate the coastline savouring magical panoramas. Arriving on Dovns Cliff they will be treated to the sight of diverse bird life. Heading inland hikers will find numerous ‘Hat Hills’; hat shaped inclines covered in grass. These are evidence of the glacial activity that marked the Ice Age thousands of years ago.
-Medieval monuments: Langeland is home to a number of ancient churches, some dating as far back as the 1100s. Another of Langeland’s notable architectural wonders from the past is the Tranekaer Castle which is perched on a hill and surrounded by water, betraying its early use as a defensive fortress. It was constructed in 1200s and boasts 3m-thick walls. Visitors who visit this castle can enjoy the scenic 165-hectare park on which it sits.
-Museums: Further making a case for Langeland as a haven of historical treasures is The Cold War Museum. It really is the Fort of Langeland which was heavily used during the Cold War. Now it functions as a museum laden with military exhibits including anti-aircraft guns, submarines and ancient fighter jets. Besides the disused military hardware, visitors can learn more about the events that transpired in the course of the war from a video show. And at the end of their tour, holidaymakers can relax on the lawns and even have a picnic.

One of these is Generalen which is not far from the Tranekaer Castle ruins. While their three-course meals are not out of the box, they’re well done and sure to satisfy. Cafe Skovsgaard and Thummelumsen are good alternatives.
