The Island of Ven

The Island of Ven

Ven (also known as Hven) is a small Swedish island which lies between southern Sweden and Denmark. This charming little island is roughly 4.5 km by 2.5 km in size and it was part of Denmark until 1658. The island is a wonderful place to visit for a cycle trip or a gentle hike - given its small size, much of the island can be covered by foot in a day!

The island is most famous for its observatory, built by Tycho Brahe in 1576 and later abandoned. Ven surprisingly also has a whisky bar with the third largest selection in the world at Backafallsbyn!

The island can be accessed by a 30 minute ferry ride from Landskrona on the Swedish mainland and in the summer can also be reached from Copenhagen, with ferries docking in the picturesque Kyrkbackan harbour. In summer, the island is a popular place for Swedish and Danish tourists, with a relaxed pace of life and beautiful, unspoilt scenery that is very typical of Southern Scandinavia.
