Fredericia, Denmark

The small town of Fredericia was purpose-built as a fortress community on the eastern shore of Jutland in 1650. Today its friendly townspeople are more dedicated to hospitality. The town’s purpose is clearly evident on first sight, as the original ramparts, moats and earthworks remain as an integral, albeit peaceful part of the town, and make a popular place to stroll or run beside the sea. The White Water Tower, constructed in 1908, makes a good place from which to get an overview. On the nearby island of Funen, medieval Egeskov Castle is a perfectly preserved example of defensive homebuilding. Its many rooms are fully furnished with every detail, including a remarkable dollhouse called Titania’s Palace containing no fewer than 3,000 miniature components. The castle’s formal gardens are one of Europe’s finest. The 10th Century Viking Rune-Stones at the town of Jelling are inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, commemorating the conversion of Denmark to Christianity by King Harald Bluetooth in 965. For a more modern, although equally impressive experience, travel west to Billund, where the fanciful, sprawling mini-world of the original Legoland delights young and old with extensive displays constructed entirely from the ubiquitous interlocking toy bricks invented there.
