Faaborg-Midtfyn has a lot to offer, and therefore more and more visitors are flocking to the municipality.
This is evidenced by the latest figures for overnight stays on Funen in 2021.
There were 390,100 overnight stays in Faaborg-Midtfyn – an increase of 14 percent compared to 2020. Compared to the last year before the coronavirus, 2019, the number of overnight stays in Faaborg-Midtfyn has increased by just under 25 percent. This is the largest increase among the Funen municipalities, according to a press release.

The clearly most popular months are July, where last year there were close to 126,000 overnight stays, and August, with over 73,000 overnight stays.

The mayor of Faaborg-Midtfyn Municipality, Hans Stavnsager (S), is thrilled with the tourism development in recent years.
- If you lived in or just visited Faaborg last summer, you knew there were many visitors. But it’s wonderful to now see in black and white that tourists keep coming to our fantastic little corner of Denmark. This clearly shows that both the Danes and our neighboring people are seeking exactly what we can offer – sea, nature, and lots of outdoor opportunities combined with culture and some major attractions, he says.
He is particularly pleased with the development in the months outside the high season.
- This is something we, in our tourism efforts and together with the stakeholders, have been working purposefully on, so it’s fantastic that this work seems to be bearing fruit. The same applies to the outdoor area. We see great prospects in this for the coming years, and of course, we will keep pushing so that Faaborg-Midtfyn remains a sought-after destination all year round, says the mayor.
