Fyens Stiftstidende is a daily newspaper in Denmark and has a circulation, primarily on Funen, of approximately 60,000 on weekdays and 80,000 on weekends. Until 1841 it was known as "Kongelig Priviligerede Odense Adresse-Contoirs Efterretninger"

On 13 April 1993 the newspaper changed its 221-year-old tradition as a midday newspaper, to a morning paper.

Since November 2007, "Stig's Stribe" (Stig's Strip in English) has appeared in the newspaper Monday through Friday all year round. The cartoon strip is of the gag strip variety and was created by Danish cartoonist/illustrator Stig Kristensen. Originally, it was placed above the other "regulars" Fyens Stiftstidende ran, Pearls Before Swine and Up and Running, but starting from February 2009 they moved those inside the newspaper featuring only "Stig's Stribe" on the back page.

The editor in chief Per Westergård chairs the board of the Centre for Journalism at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, one of the two university journalism departments in Denmark.
