For current international students

Life in Svendborg

Svendborg is built facing the harbour and Svendborg Sound. Restaurants and cafes are right on the harbour with views of cargo ships, ferries and amateur boaters. From town there are many ferry connections to small islands in the South Funen Archipelago.

Svendborg is a unique mix of new and old which gives this town its own beat. You’ll find many cosy cafees and specialty stores. Life in town is influenced heavily by the many students living in Svendborg.

As the first Danish municipality, Svendborg is a member of the international city network Cittaslow and is actively working to improve quality of life for all residents. The municipality is working particularly with three areas: maritime life, healthy life and creative life.  Read more about Svendborg here.

From Svendborg, its easy to get to Odense, Ringe and Nyborg and all the way to Copenhagen. Trains and busses depart regularly and with short intervals.
