Munkenes Teglovn (medieval brick kiln)

Take a walk in the past

The monastery’s brick kiln from the 1300s fired large tiles and bricks for, among other things, the local Dominican monastery. In 1923, the brick kiln was found and excavated by the National Museum of Denmark. Citizens in Vejle then headed a collection to fund a building to protect the ruin. The historic kiln was restored in 1983 and can only be viewed from the outside.

VejleMuseerne issues a monthly flier with information about the activities of the month. The flyer is available at the tourist office and at museums and exhibition centres. It can also be accessed at
