Middelfart

Middelfart is a city on the island of Funen in Denmark, just before the highway and train line passes the little belt bridges to Jutland.

Serviced by the highway and the main train line, Middelfart is easily accessible. Billund Lufthavn is the nearest airport, and a car rental can be found there. Driving to Middelfart from Billund takes roughly an hour, and the same can be done by bus with transfer in Vejle.

Middelfart is not a large city, so transport in Middelfart is mainly by foot. Walking around in the forests west of Middelfart, on the newly renovated waterfront (with a view of both bridges) with the Cultural Island (“Kulturøen” – housing the tourist information) or in the narrow streets of the old town is nice in the summertime.

Of course, Middelfart is not housing international and/or famous sightseeings, but the beautiful nature and the old buildings in the town are not to be missed.

  • Kulturøen (“the Cultural Island”) is a fairly new building on the waterfront build after the architectural principle of no right angles. The tourist information, the cinema, the library and a restaurant (shifting owner and concept about once a month due to constant bankruptcy) is to be found here. Just outside this building is a marina.
  • Sct Nikolaus Church is nothing than a large Lutheran church located almost right on the harbour, only separated by a road and a small hill.
  • Den gamle og nye lillebæltsbro (the old and the new Little Belt bridges) are two bridges, one carrying the highway and the other a road and the rail.
  • The old town is an area in central Middelfart. It consists of narrow streets with old row houses where a few galeries and smaller shops are to be found.
  • The commercial centre is Algade and Østergade in central Middelfart. Several local boutiques are to be found here, including interesting local special shops.
  • Kongebroskoven – a walk from Gammelhavn (the old harbour) through Kongebro forest leading to the old timber framed Grimmermosehuset and the beach in front (although swimming is not permitted) and the 5-star Kongebrogården hotel just beside Kobakken, the slope for sledging where every child goes when the snow falls.
  • Hindsgavl Castle is located out of the city centre (2 km) and is used for conferences and meetings. There is a restaurant too. The garden is very beautiful and romantic though.
