The ferry route from Bøjden on the west coast of Funen to Fynshav on the island of Als, makes it possible to take a shortcut from Funen to South Jutland and Germany – without having to drive across The Little Belt Bridge.
When choosing the Bøjden-Fynshav ferry, you can save about an hour, compared to taking motorway E45 across Funen and motorway E20 through South Jutland. The costs are more or less the same – the cost for fuel used for driving compared to the ferry ticket. Another benefit by using the Bøjden-Fynshav ferry is the possibility to relax for 50 minutes – the crossing time by ferry across southern part of The Little Belt.
The Bøjden-Fynshav ferry is operated by the ferry company Færgen, which uses the ferry Thor Sydfyen on the route. The ferry departs Bøjden or Fynshav every second hour – on the hour. However, in the daytime during the summer, two ferries operate the Bøjden-Fynshav route with hourly departures. The Bøjden-Fynshav route was operated by Scandlines a few years ago, and the photo above is from the Scandlines days.
The Bøjden-Fynshav connection is part of Highway 8 from Nyborg on Funen to Tønder in the south western corner of Jutland. Highway 8 is mostly a two lane highway, but a very scenic one. Especially the part across the south of Funen contains plenty of scenic beauty crossing though woods and passing close by several big manor houses and the very popular and famous Egeskov Castle. Expect about one hour of driving time when driving from Nyborg to Bøjden on Highway 8.
