Quietly Wonderful Fredericia awaits

Credible – Close – Cruisable

Fredericia is beautifully situated right by the shimmering Little Belt, beside two coastlines with a magnificent view of Danish nature. In Fredericia you are visiting Danish history. At the same time our location - right in the middle of Denmark – gives you access to world class attractions. After only a five minutes stroll from the cruise quay of Fredericia you are in charming and historic midtown with cozy shops, excellent restaurants and historic sights. Dating back to 1650, where the Danish King began building the city, and with a significant military history still visible in Northern Europe’s best preserved ramparts, you will be seeing beautiful old houses, memorial plaques and monuments – the authenticity and history is present and alive. Also with a maximum drive of 60 minutes you can reach not only several UNESCO sites, but also the original LEGOLAND, the home town of Hans Christian Andersen and much more.
