At Bakkely 50, Munkebo has an exciting little attraction that is worth a visit. It is a mini-city which consists of approx. 100 mini-houses, down to the detail, are exact copies of the houses from the old Munkebo fishing village, as it looked in 1956 before the establishment of the Lindøværftet created a stir in the small community. The exhibition also includes a board exhibition which tells the whole story of the area from past to present.
It is possible to visit the workshop during working hours, where a group of unpaid, active seniors work on the small mini houses.
June to August:
September to May:
The workshop is open to visitors during opening hours when staff are present. There is no admission charge, but donations are very welcome.
Guided tours are arranged by prior arrangement with Arne Kristiansen on phone +45 2462 5697 or email email@example.com. Price per person DKK 20, but minimum DKK 200. The tour takes approx. 1 1/4 hours and includes the often dramatic history of the area as well as the city's recent history as a village, shipyard and today as a port.
Munkebo Miniby also has a playground for smaller children.
There is also the possibility to eat the packed lunches in the exhibition's small tents on the square.
The marginal moraine - Munkebo Bakke - with the Bronze Age mounds Degnehøj - Svanehøj and Kongshøj - was formed during the last Ice Age (Weichel) when the Bælthavsglacier made this ridge from materials from Kertinge Nor/Kerteminde Fjord.
The fjord/Noret covers a total area of 8.5 km2, with an average water depth of 2 m, and a maximum depth of 8 m. From the start at Langebro (bridge) in Kerteminde to the bottom, it is almost 10 km.
The change of the tide causes a water flow of typically 100 m3 - per second - at the fjord mouth.
Aquarius occurs in very large numbers. The density in the middle of summer is as high as 250 individuals per m3. This quantity causes the jellyfish to starve, and thus do not grow very large.
Other animals and fish include dogfish, mud goby, European eel, black goby, sprat, eel flounder, kelp needle and flounder, as well as invertebrates such as prawns, mussels, brush worms, beach crabs and barnacles.
If you want to learn more about the animals of the sea, a visit to Fjord and Belt is highly recommended.
This abundance of animals is the reason for the abundance of birds: eiders, swans, cormorants, seagulls and herons can be seen.
On the south side of Kerteminde Fjord near Ladby, Denmark's only Viking ship grave was excavated in 1935. The world's only ship grave from the Viking Age, where the ship still lies in its original place. From the same time, it can be mentioned that a pile barrier was found at Snekkeled near Skålholm, which was supposed to prevent looting from the lake side at Munkebo.
At the bottom near Dræby there has been a draw point between Kertinge Nor and Odense Fjord. In the Viking Age there were approx. 300 meters between these two fjords.
At the bottom of Kertinge Nor lies the small island of Galgeholm. Horror and horror, one might say. Because until 1578 there was actually a court here! Remains of the foundation have been found on top of an ancient grave.
It should also be reported that there were thoughts of damming the Kertinge Nor, but the Ministry of War prevented it in the 1870s, as it was too expensive and too big a job. And fortunately for that, you could say.
Otherwise, at Langebro (brigde) in Kerteminde at low tide you can see a small island: Melen, or as it was called earlier, Middelgrund. It is not known exactly when it originated, but it can be seen on maps from the beginning of the 19th century. Most likely formed by merging materials when Langebro (bridge) was built. Has been quite a bit bigger in the past, but is now on its way back to the fjord.
In 1901, Melen hosted a party for the Salvation Army for 3 days. And has also previously been used for St. Bonfire.
Take the time for a breathtaking and beautiful bike or kayak tour around Kerteminde Fjord/Kertinge Nor. Where, in addition to beautiful nature, the tour also offers, for example, Kertinge Church, Ulriksholm Castle and the forest by Ulriksholm where, if you look carefully, you can see a few Bronze Age mounds. Perhaps a visit to the Viking Museum in Ladby.
The Hans Christian Andersen Forest was started in 2001 and is therefore a newer forest. Seen from the air, the forest resembles Andersen's paper cut-out "The Sun's Head" and the pattern is created by a mixture of oak and lime trees. The forest is inspired by the forests H.C. Andersen visited during his stays at various manor houses in Denmark. These manor houses had large parks that merged with the surrounding forests and fields.
H.C. Andersen Forest aims to recreate the boundary between the well-kept manor park and the surrounding landscape. In time, the forest will be filled with the flowers and birdsong of the oak forest, and it will be a place where you can relax, close your eyes and experience the spirit of fairy tales. The forest will have a romantic and park-like appearance, in keeping with the spirit of Hans Christian Andersen. Andersen's spirit.
Outside the forest, cattle will graze on the grassland. For the first several years, the area will be fenced off so that the animals can graze between the rays of the trees that stretch out into the landscape. The tree rows consist of oak mixed with hawthorn, rowan, dog rose, hazel and elder. When the trees grow big and strong enough, the fence is removed, allowing the animals to graze under the oak canopy.
Where to find it?
H.C. Andersen Forest is located east of Odense River between Åsum and Seden, with the main entrance from Svendsagervej. The forest is ideal for family outings, where children can play on the fun natural playground equipment, while adults can enjoy seating and barbecues.
Funen's most beautiful view - enjoy it from The Hill and from the top of the tower, which is 58 m above sea level - or sit in the Viking ship - there is a copy of the Ladby ship - and dream that you are sailing around the world - you can also immerse you in the many boards by the marked Viking finds and not least in the information house, where The Hills history is illustrated.
In the information house there is a toilet with disabled facilities.
The Hill has many tables/benches, where you can enjoy your brought food or coffee in the most beautiful surroundings, while the children play in the Viking ship or play in the labyrinth.
At the Viking Museum Ladby by Kerteminde Fjord you can step inside Denmark's oldest royal tomb. Here, a nameless king was laid to rest in his Viking ship more than 1,000 years ago. The museum contains Denmark's only ship grave from the Viking Age – an attraction of international format. The Ladby ship is atmospherically displayed as a burial chamber in a rebuilt burial mound exactly on the spot where it was found in 1935. Archaeological investigations have established that the Viking ship was pulled up on land around the year 925, where the dead king was buried in the ship with his horses, dogs, weapons and other valuable goods.
Viking Museum Ladby's main attraction is the Ladby king's Viking ship grave; but is also a museum for the entire East Funen Viking Country. The exhibition "Ladbykongens Verden" tells about the Viking Age in a broad and general way. With the help of exhibited finds, films and artistic renderings of Viking Age East Funen, you can explore the world and daily life that the King of Ladby was a part of. In the "Vikings' Wardrobe", both children and adults can try dressing up in Viking clothes. Everywhere in the exhibitions you will also find many unique local metal detector finds that tell about people and gods in the Viking Age in gold, silver and bronze. The Ladby king's funeral is presented in the exhibition "King and Warrior". Here you can experience the illusion of being present on the day when the dead Viking king was laid to rest in his ship, ready for the voyage to the beyond. A full-size replica of the Ladby ship, recreated Vikings, dead horses and grave goods can be seen next to display cases with the original items from the grave. Furthermore, in the exhibition you can see the unique Ladby Tapestry – a seven-metre long embroidered tapestry inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry from Normandy. Here the story of the death of the King of Ladby and the discovery of his grave 1000 years later is conveyed - in colorful pictures.
All summer long, you can experience the reconstructed Viking ship, the Ladbydragen, lying and rocking in the fjord below the burial mound. Exactly where the original ship was pulled ashore over 1,000 years ago. Read much more about the shipwreck, the Ladby dragon, the Ladby tapestry and much more on the Viking Museum Ladby's website.
Throughout the year, the museum's visitors can experience an exciting program with current lectures about the Viking Age, tours about the King of Ladby and the Viking Age, as well as lots of Viking activities for children and adults. During the school holidays, an exciting program of Viking activities is offered. Depending on the time of year, visitors of all ages can try their hand at archaeology, archery, javelin throwing, Viking combat, ceramics, woodworking, etc. accompanied by the museum's skilled and knowledgeable mediators. All year round there are also treasure hunts for children throughout the museum.
In the Viking Museum Ladby's museum shop, you can buy a wide range of delicious items with the Viking Age as their theme. The shop offers a large selection of jewellery, mead, books, toys and other Viking souvenirs. It is also possible to buy coffee, cocoa, soft drinks, ice cream and cakes, which can be enjoyed in the small café area or in the museum's cozy courtyard.
Both the museum building and the mound with the Viking ship grave are handicapped-friendly with ramps, no high door steps and, in the case of the museum building, an elevator. The trip from the parking lot in front of the museum to the museum building as well as the trip from the latter to the hill (approx. 300 m) can be challenging due to gravel and dirt paths, respectively, which by their nature are not 100% level. However, there are benches along the way, so it is possible to take a break from the walk.
In the basement of the museum building there is a toilet which is suitable for the disabled. The basement is easily accessible by elevator.
There is free entry for disabled helpers who visit the museum during working hours.
Dogs are welcome on a leash in the museum's outdoor area.
The museum has a wheelchair that can be borrowed.

Explore the romantic garden, which has been recreated by it's current owners to reflect the peaceful style originally set up by Johan Bülow in the period 1793-1828. He erected minimalistic gazebos and memorials at idyllic locations around the garden, often in order to stimulate thought and the connection between man and nature, as well as to invite a meditative and reflective stop between long walks throughout this gorgeous garden.
Located inside the romantic garden is the main building of Sanderumgaard, Manor House, one of the first of its kind in Denmark. The garden itself covers 15 hectares / 37 acres and on these grounds, the original design of the cottages; Tankefuld (Mindful) and Sommerlyst (Summer's Delight) still exist. The area is tied together by a larger canal system of approx. 2 km which brings together islands, lawns and park, which can be accessed by various bridges and winding paths.
Guided tours for parties of at least 20: DKK 170,- per person, including coffee/tea and cake.
FYI - The garden is always open on a public holidays - even if they fall on a Monday!
In addition there is a farm/gift shop that is open by appointment. Feel free to call and ask.
Vor Frue Kirke (The Church of Our Lady) is the oldest church in the city, dating from the end of the 12th century. A wooden church stood on this site as early as the 10th century, later replaced by a church in granite. Next to the church lies Odense's oldest secular building, built c. 1300. It is now a place where the congregation meets, although in former times it functioned as a grammar school and a mortuary (though presumably not at the same time).
The History of the Garden
The Garden was founded in 1948 by the teacher Arne Emdal and was originally owned by the Odense School Authority. It was named the "School Botanical Garden" and was used for botany education and plant distribution. Later, the garden was taken over by Odense's park department.
A Botanical Treasure for All
The Garden is now an inspiration for garden owners and a popular destination that offers a unique botanical experience. Visitors can admire an impressive variety of perennials and Denmark's largest collection of birch and fern plants from around the world. There is also an extensive assortment of cranesbill and daylilies. The old-fashioned, densely flowering, and fragrant roses are a delight for both the eye and the nose. All plants are labeled with their name, variety, and place of origin.
The Path to the Garden
To reach the garden, you can either follow the stream path across the red bridge or start the journey from the parking lot in the allotment gardens and follow a picturesque path along the stream. In the facility, you will find a water station, a toilet that is open during the summer months, and a canoe mooring area.
The sculpture of "Midgårdsormen" - the Midgard Serpent - on Torvet in Otterup is made by the Sculptor Jørgen Meier-Larsen, Bårdesø, with help from the stone-cutter Hans Kelbøl.
The sculpture's 9 humps symbolize the 9 small parishes that formed the former Otterup municipality.
In the middle, you can see the god Thor fighting the serpent with all his might.
• The idea to make a sculpture of the Midgard Serpent came up at the 25th jubilee of Otterup municipality in 1991
• The work began in 1997
• The sculpture was revealed on the 21st of October 2000
• The sculpture is made of red granite
• The figure of the God Thor is made of bronze
• The stones for the humps had an average weight of 5 tons
• The head has a height of 2,4 m
Let your imagination soar and play engine driver in the cabs of the impressive steam locomotives.

The Johannes Larsen Museum at Møllebakken in Kerteminde offers more than just an artistic experience of a special quality. The museum is also a fascinating historical architectural environment with the artist´s home in the center, surrounded by more recent buildings of great architectural interest.
Johannes Larsen was the most prominent member of the Fyn School of Painters. The Fyn School was largely formed in Kerteminde – “the most beautiful little town in the world” as Johannes liked to describe the town where he was brought up.
But not only did Johannes and his wife live in Kerteminde, so did Anna and Fritz Syberg, you can visit Sybergland just outside the city, which got its name from Fritz Syberg. From time to time, Christine and Sigurd Swane also lived here. Together they formed a colony of artist which acted as a magnet in attracting other artist and writers to Kerteminde.
The magnetism still works today, as can be seen from a visit to the museum, which portrays the themes of the artistic life of the area up to present day.
A visit to the artists’ home.
Johannes Larsen´s home, is the museum. It has down-to-earth art, which is tied to the sensory impressions and everyday beauty one encounters. Johannes Larsen Museum can, in itself, be classified as one big painting, because of the breathtaking views and the peaceful serene atmosphere.
The villa on Møllebakken was built by the newlywed artist couple in the first years of the 20th century. Of the two, it was Johannes who ran with most fame, but do not let that fool you. Alhed was likewise an excellent painter who had floral motifs as her favorite genre. The couple´s home is today untouched with furniture and other fixtures – and naturally, a plethora of art on the walls.
In the early 1990s, a large number of leading cultural personalities of the time – painters, writers, architects, and many others enjoyed the hospitality of the artist couple.
A garden chock full of charming buildings.
The “Workshop” is an extension of the house, where Johannes and Alhed each had their studio. On the southside of the building is a luxuriant conservatory, which houses a multitude of plants.
In the centre of the extensive grounds, which houses the numerous rare and beautiful trees, you will find the old summerhouse, which Johannes used as a vinery. On the edge of the grounds, with an overview of the bay, you will find the old laundry building along with the wooden Svanehus, which is now a café.
The old mill also belongs to the museum, as Johannes Larsen owned it. From here there is a superb view over the North Beach and the Great Belt. Next to the windmill you find the old mill house, where visitors today can eat packed lunches.
The display at the museum includes a total of more than 50 artists, who are represented in the 15 rooms, organised by themes.
