Sculpture tour in Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality
Go for an exciting sculpture tour around Faaborg-Midtfyn municipality
Take this description with you on your trip by bike or car around Faaborg-Midtfunen and experience nature, urban communities and especially sculptures in public spaces. For more than 10 years, we have registered sculptures in all corners of the municipality. It has turned into over 200 sculptures and some of them we would like to show you. We have prioritised hard and we have chosen some less well-known works.
But if you have an appetite for more, just look up the www.skulptur-faaborg.dk, and here you find the rest of the sculptures. It's a roundtour so you can start in Faaborg, or any other place you prefer. All it takes is for you - on your phone or GPS - to enter where you want to go. The sculpture tour is also an attempt to tie the municipality closer together culturally. We have both enjoyed being "all around" and hope you will enjoy it too.
The tourist office has been responsible for all the technical stuff. We have selected the sculptures, taken pictures and made the text. Have a nice trip.
Sincerely, Anders Rehde Nielsen and Ole Folke Olsen
