Activities on Langeland
But what can you do there? Langeland offers a great variety of activities, you wont be bored for a single minute. If you are fond of fishing, you can try your luck at sea. On the east side of the island, you will find one of Denmark’s best angling waters – it is a fishermen’s paradise.
Don’t be disappointed if on the day you decided to go fishing, it turns out to be grey and stormy. In the case of bad weather, you can still go fishing at a 10.000 sqm “Put and Take”- lake, located north of the harbour. You will get your chance to catch some fish on Langeland 😉

If fishing is not your biggest hobby, there is still other options to spend your time on this amazing island. How about going on a discovery tour? You can take a walk or a hike on the island, enjoy the nature and beautiful view of the sea. Feel free to ask the harbour master to equip you with a map and his recommendations at the port office before starting your little adventure.

How about a little „Tour de Langeland“? Another great way to discover the surroundings are by bike. You can either rent one at the harbour or bring your own. On your trip, you will find forests and beaches, ancient remains, medieval churches and an idyllic market town. There is something to see for everyone and there will be so much to discover, plenty of cosy villages and the idyllic castletown TranekĂŠr. Dont worry about running out of places to go, the island is approximately 60 km long and 9 km wide.
If you are too tired to walk or bike, you can jump on a bus. There are bus connections to RudkĂžbing, from RudkĂžbing to Bagenkop in the south and Lohals in the north. The public transportation got you covered, in case you decided to take a break from walking.
