Eriksen Square is one of the oldest sites of wooden shipbuilding dated back to the Danish sailing ships golden age. More than a dozen wooden ship yards have launched ships from this place over the years. The site is one of the green oases that Marstal’s harbour is blessed with. The site is freely accessible with a barbecue area and tables/benches.

In the administration building there is also a rich archive for local and maritime history.
