We are two dedicated, hikers working for the extension of the Archipelago trail to include beautiful South Langeland. We have therefore given ourselves the task of describing a hiking route from where it presently so abrupt ends today (Lindelse Nor), via Skovsgård Manor til Bagenkop. We hiked and taken notes and pictures along the way so we have a description ready. We hope that our proposal for a route can help to speed up the difficult process of the extension of the Archipelago trail. And we have experienced some beautiful hikes with many beautiful views of Langeland, the coast and the sea and many good experiences. The pictures here are from the last stage of our project: The walk along the coast from the east of Broløkke Manor around the southern tip / Keldsnor Lighthouse to Bagenkop.

The opening ceremony took place in garden 5, the garden for herbs for the treatment of diseases involving nervous system and movement apparatus. In the Medicine Gardens in Tranekær there are about 500 different plants, and by them all there are signs that tell of the previous and present medical use effects of the plants. The gardens are open all year from sunrise to sunset (www.medicinhaverne.dk, www.facebook.com/medicinhaverne). The main focus Medicine Gardens is the cultural history of the use of plants in medicine.

A walk along the east coast of Langeland. There is no official hiking trail along the southern part of the east coast of Langeland, and it attracts very few visitors even though it is very beautiful. For historical and political reasons, the present hiking trail on Langeland (Øhavsstien – Hiking along the Archipelago) only covers the northern and central part of the island. The east coast of Langeland has a straight coastline. Waves and currents has rearranged the coast to make it straight. Behind this straight coastline there has previously been a number of wetlands. Today, the wetlands are transformed into grain fields by means of ditches and pumping stations.
