Comments[edit]

The url+title+link på fyn page of this wikivoyage article are fundamentally incorrect, Fåborg is not the name of the town on Fyn, but is the name of a village i Jutland. It is easy to make the mistake, as in danish AA is Å, but that is all that differentiates the village and town from each other.

Here is a link to the wikipedia page of the village in Jutland. https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A5borg_(Varde_Kommune)

Thank you for listening and I hope you can make the suggested changes, as I don't know how. —The preceding comment was added by 86.52.252.2 (talkcontribs)

@86.52.252.2: I can do the move. The article for this town is indeed spelled with 'aa' in Wikipedia, and we're using the 'aa' spelling for e.g. Aarhus and Aalborg as well.
Nevertheless, both the Danish and English Wikipedia articles for this town say the article is known as "Faaborg eller Fåborg". So even if the article is moved, the name "Fåborg" should probably still be mentioned in the lead section of the article? ϒpsilon (talk) 12:03, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, but I disagree, as there is a confusion, with the village in Jutland. It is not the case of the town having two names, it actually only has the one. Faaborg on Fyn is never spelled Fåborg and never has. AArhus and Århus + Aalborg and Ålborg are cities which have two names and the locals of the two cities use both versions,,, Faaborg is different it only has the one. None of the locals here will ever call it Fåborg. Thank you again for listening and making the relevant changes. —The preceding comment was added by 86.52.252.2 (talkcontribs)

OK, and you're welcome. :) ϒpsilon (talk) 13:13, 18 August 2018 (UTC)


Here is my suggestion, as to what is to be done in order to make the article epic. List the ancient monuments and explain their relevance, modern statues, windmills, churches, manor houses (diernæs manorhouse and park), arreskov sø, more info about bird watching, weather and clothing, list more restaurants and place them in order of budget, list all beaches especially the blue flag beaches, the ruins in Diernæs, outdoor fitness areas, websites and update instructions for taxa, bicycle taxa.
