Rudkøping is the main town on Langeland. The local tourist offices make quite a lot of it, but frankly, we thought
it was a little run down, and didn't do the rest of the island justice. Since the bridge to the mainland was built, the main road
now bypasses the town.
The harbour has something of an air of decay, although moves seem afoot to smarten it up. The buses terminate
in a rather run down version of what was once the railway station. The marina is somewhat better, with a decent hotel, restaurant
and swimming baths (?). The bridge makes a great backdrop.
The side streets have some old houses. There is also a statue of the towns most famous son: Hans Christian Ørsted,
who discovered magnetism.
There are three supermarkets in the town centre, and an interesting jewelers shop, with some off beat pieces.
There is supposed to be a Internet cafe, but it was closed for the duration when we were there.
