Today, Fuglsang is owned by the Danish Nature Agency and North Funen Municipality respectively and is operated with the objective of ensuring that there is a recreational area with a bathing beach, open spaces and woodland. And, this is exactly what the area is: An oasis of enjoyment and relaxation.


The woodland at Fuglsanggård was established as a pure oak woodland. It was thinned out drastically in or-der to make it open and light and more easily accessible.


The oak thrives and is an ideal tree to grow in this coastal area. In certain places, the blackberry scrub grows tall and wild, but otherwise the forest is a very pleasant place to go exploring.


On the western side of Fuglsangvejen, the vegetation grows wild and you will come across many different types of exciting plants. These plants attract a wealth of different birds, insects and butterflies and the area is an exciting area of natural beauty. If you’re lucky, you might also catch a glimpse of the roe deer and the hare, both of whom live here.

The Summer Houses

If you look at old aerial photograph from the mid-1940s, in several places along the coastline you will see a single row of small allotments with little houses facing the Kattegat – there are a few more around Hasmark.


Twenty years later, at the end of the 1960s, the summer house culture really took off in North Funen. The establishment of closed fields, roads and holiday houses extends from the entrance to the town at Enebærod-de in the east towards Tørresø in the west, a distance of approximately 10 km. There are around 2,600 summer houses in the


The beach in front of Fuglsang looks out over the blue waves of the Kattegat. Historically, the name Kattegat was mentioned for the first time around 1660, in the form of Das Katte Gat – the cat hole.


The captains of the Dutch commercial fleets compared the Danish sounds (the Great Belt, the Little Belt and Øresund) to a hole so narrow that even a cat would find it difficult to squeeze itself through.


This was not least because of the many reefs and calm waters we have here, something to which countless old shipwrecks will testify. It is unclear which part of the waters originally bore the name Kattegat.

The beach

If there is anything the coastline here invites you to do, it is strolling, bathing, sunbathing (in the summer, of course) and treasure hunting. Today, the Blue Flag flutters in the wind, indicating that here, water quality, safety, information, the environment and facilities are paramount.


Namely, the Blue Flag scheme is an environmental labelling scheme that guarantees that the beach works towards safeguarding our shared nature and environment. All of this helps ensure that everyone will have a great time at the beach.

The green area

It is possible to rinse the salty water off under the shower, there is a public toilet and, during the summer, you can buy an ice cream or a hot dog from the mobile ice cream parlour. In this area, there is ample space for the whole family to settle down on the picnic rug and enjoy the packed lunch you brought along.


It is also possible to have a barbecue on one of the open-air barbecue grills with the sausages/steak you brought along.
