Ideal 3-4 night car trip?

Will be traveling with an elderly friend. What is the best 3-4 night tour of Denmark, including fiords, some walks through hills, and some historic castles? We will have 3-4 nights before leaving from Copenhagen to return to USA. Will have car. Maybe 1 (affordable) location for day trips by car, rather than moving location every day? Within these parameters, what would be your ideal car trip?

Thank you!

You might find some inspiration in this thread; Møn is certainly worth a visit judging from your criteria.

tripadvisor.com/…57705421

Danish hills and fjords of course aren´t mountaineous as in Norway.

Other places of interest, in Jutland:

Silkeborg lake district & Himmelbjerget hill;

Skagen/Råbjerg Mile/Rubjerg Knude for some great scenery too;

Ebeltoft - Mols - Helgenæs area

Ribe / The Wadden Sea

... but the suggested areas are not feasible to visit from 1 base.

Combining the tours in the earlier thread, you´d need a stay in two places - one on Møn, and one in western or central Zealand. The thread´s mentioned Dragsholm Manor Hotel is not inexpensive, however.

Overall, rural B&Bs can be really great and economical finds.

Thanks, Joen. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions regarding Odense and Billund areas? Based on our preliminary research, they seem nicely rural, with some interesting sites. Would you agree?

Funen Island where Odense is situated a nice area. I´d suggest staying in the Southern part, near Faaborg for example. As for hikes, the scenery is mildly undulating, such as that of Svanninge Bakker, famous from paintings and national/democratic gatherings fynsk-natur.dk/pdf-foldere/68_Svanninge_teks… It is not as dramatic as Møn, though.

Sights on Funen include Egeskov Castle and a good deal of other manor houses, Hans Christian Andersen and Carl Nielsen museums in Odense, Faaborg Art Museum & Johannes Larsen art museums, and not at least Ærø Island with for instance Ærøskøbing village. You could also easily drive a bit into Jutland from there.

To get to Zealand, the Island with Copenhagen, from Funen, there´s quite a substantial fee for the bridge. Whereas the bridge to Jutland is free.

The Billund area itself in Jutland doesn´t have quite the same density of sights, from what I know. in Jutland, I´d head up to the Ebeltoft area for a combination of the sights and excusion possibilities + beaches you want.

Better brochure on Svanninge here (you can use Google translate)

Some manor houses on Funen (=Fyn); the already mentioned Egeskov is much visited.
