Fejø Church is one of the oldest island churches in Denmark. The oldest part of the church was constructed in 1240, while the chancel, nave and church porch were added over the subsequent decades. In the Middle Ages the church was dedicated to St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. The church is situated right down by the water and originally served as a church for the surrounding islands, from where the congregation came to church by boat.
The fertile and clayey soil on Fejø is ideal for growing fruit. Indeed, Fejø has been famed for its fruit production down through the ages. The surrounding sea provides a milder climate during the critical spring months, so that the fruit has the optimal conditions for growing. The many fruit trees like to blossom in the middle of May which is an incredibly beautiful sight. Especially, Kernegaarden, which has been recognised for its juice several times.
Along the roads on Fejø you will discover an abundance of small unmanned country stalls that sell everything from delicious locally grown fruit and vegetables to homemade marmalade, honey, fresh eggs and bait for fishing; or how about a genuine Fejø gnome? When paying for goods, you should simply place the amount that corresponds to the price of the purchases in the small cash box provided.
Fejø is a very active island; one of the larger events held during Whitsuntide is a large, festive Whitsun carnival with a procession from harbour to harbour. At the end of July, the "drivkvaser" (famed Fejø fishing boats) and other boats assemble from near and far for the wooden ships sailing race in the waters around Dybvig Harbour. Autumn is characterised by fruit, as the old tubs sail to Nyhavn at the start of September, loaded with fresh Fejø fruit bound for the residents of Copenhagen. Fejø celebrates apple day in October, a whole day dedicated to the fruits of Fejø.
When visiting Fejø, you should not deny yourself the chance to visit Skalø, which is connected to Fejø via a narrow dike. Skalø is only around 100 hectares in area and has its own small harbour. Skalø´s picturesque landscape varies between clay cliffs and flat tidal meadows. Skalø has a wealth of birdlife and every spring and autumn many migratory birds visit Skalø on their way south. It is possible to take a ramble around Skalø. If you follow the earth road northwards, you will come to a path that leads down to the beach (to the East). From here you can walk around Skalø along the beach. Go to the Fejø’s official tourist portal
