Denmark's largest nature playground, Troldeland, is located at Gåsebjergsand in Svanninge Hills just outside Faaborg. The Nature Playground is divided into various zones:

  • a large play area for 7 to 12 year olds with some 25 pieces of playing equipment situated along the edge so you can play ‘Iceberg Jump’ all the way around;
  • a Land of Trolls for 3 to 6 year olds with some 10 pieces of playing equipment;
  • an area where you can build hideouts, a campfire and sit under cover of the rain;
  • a campground for school classes, scout troops, etc.;
  • the playing area is characterised by ‘inverted’ trees from the Funen State Forest District.
