Get around

Tønder is small enough to be navigated on foot. Buses leave to the villages dotted around the city from the bus station.

There are several cozy cafes around the square (Torvet)


Not many options for having a long night out in Tønder, unless you hit the festival. But these places normally see a relatively large crowd, especially Friday and Saturday. Thursdays get busy sometimes too, but it is pretty much hit and miss.
