If you only had one hour to spend in Fredericia, let it be spent strolling the incredible City Walls. Construction on Fredericia’s City Walls began when the city was founded and still remains a testament to the Danish’s mighty military. It takes about one hour to stroll through the centuries-old fortress and is surrounded with old cannons as well as historical statues commemorating battles past. Be sure to climb up to the White Water Tower—the sweeping cityscapes will be well worth the effort.
Cool off from all the walking and sightseeing in historic Fredericia at a local café. Enjoy traditional Danish sausages, bite into open-face sandwiches (known as smorrebrod), take your pick from an assortment of rich potato dishes, and experiment with pickled vegetables ranging from onions to beets. Top it all off with fresh ice cream or ostebord, a cheese plate served after a meal with wine, grapes and crackers.
The unit of currency in Denmark is the Krone (DKK). U.S. dollars are accepted in some of the more tourist-oriented stores and major credit cards are also widely accepted.
