The Ultimate Lesson in Hygge.

Flanked by miles of emerald Fjords and the Fuglsang Forest, the old port of Fredericia offers the perfect introduction to Jutland on your cruise of Denmark.

A close second to the Danish capital, Federicia is a fortress town of historic and present day military importance to the Royal Danish Army. Walk the famed city walls on an hour long journey, stopping to view the statues, cannons, and gates along the city’s citadel. Climb Gunpowder Tower and take in stunning views of the sapphire sea from atop Fredericia’s oldest military building.

In typical Danish style, many of the port city’s streets are easily accessible by foot or bike. Cycle along the coast to explore the yellow sand beaches just outside the city center. Café hop and imbibe in a little homegrown Hygge, the Danish word for their particular brand of coziness. Dine on traditional Scandinavian comfort foods under the country’s oldest functioning watermill. Watch the sunset from the terrace of one of the many brightly hued eateries lining the boardwalk. Quaint can’t even begin to describe this beautiful Nordic town on the sea.
