The Fyn Alps was created by ice age glaciers, since they of 15000 years ago moved across the island of Funen. Svanninge Bakker is the most striking manifestation of these enormous forces of nature, and the stunning views from the Tower in the hills gives a unique picture of the result: one of the most beautiful landscapes in Denmark.
