Take a sentimental journey

Enjoy a small piece of Faaborg during its flourishing period of 18th and 19th century. A visit to the old Merchant’s House will take both young and old on a journey to the town’s golden ages. Inside this charming half-timbered house, you may stroll through beautiful rooms and find treasures that were brought home from voyages on the great oceans. Or imported from the local island Lyo, like their fine embroideries.

A teahouse with a view
The museum’s garden includes a teahouse that invites you to take a break and enjoy the view over the archipelago. Inside, you will also find games, books and toys to play with.

Get the past of Faaborg right under your skin, when you visit “Den Gamle Gaard”. The entrance is situated close to the Town Jail museum, and hosts a cozy little shop of handcraft products to bring home as a souvenir.
