How to Reach

By Air

Denmark is served by two major and several minor airports who nearly all offer international connections. Most European airlines offers routes to Copenhagen, and many also to Billund, but SAS Scandinavian Airlines  remains the dominant carrier. Key players in the low-cost market include the national Cimber-Sterling  or Norwegian , Easyjet , Transavia and finaly Ryanair which has services only to provincial airports.

By Train

There are five direct trains per day from Hamburg to Copenhagen, approximately every two to three hours. These trains are loaded onto a ferry for the sea passage from Puttgarten to Rodby, and the total journey time is around 4.5 hours. There are also two train lines to Jutland from Hamburg, one via Padborg and the other via Tonder.

By Bus

If you are in one of the neighbouring countries, long distance buses offer a good economical alternative to trains. From Germany serveral bus companies operate routes from Hamburg and Berlin to Copenhagen and Aarhus. A trip from Berlin to Copenhagen can cost as little as 200 DKK, but normally will set you back around 300 DKK (40€) and take around 8 hours, another popular route Hamburg to Aarhus takes around 5½ hours. Try to check out the following companies; Berolina Eurolines and Abildskou

Places to Visit

Hindsgavl Mansion

Hindsgavl Slot on a peninsula west of the center of Middelfart is of interest. The house was built in Neo-classical style in 1784, with two floors and two side-wings, and stands in a beautiful park. For some years now it has been a conference center, with a hotel. Nearby have been found foundations and walls which formed part of the original Hindisgavl Castle. The barn in the grounds displays prehistoric items and a section on the castle's history. The evolution of the landscape is illustrated.

St Nicholas Church

St Nicholas' Church by the harbor of Middelfart was built in Romanesque style in the 12th C. and later extended; the work was financed in part by selling "letters of pardon" to heretics and other criminals. It boasts a beautiful pulpit (1596), a font by Hermann Wilhelm Bissen and a Baroque altar (1650) with a painting of ca. 1840 by C. W. Eckersberg.

Middelfart Museum

In Henner Friisers Hus, a gabled half-timbered house, can be found the Local History Museum. It displays articles concerned with dolphin-hunting ca. 1500 and a collection of ladies' hats.

Krengerup Castle

Krengerup Castle, to the east of Assens on the Little Belt south of Middelfart, is one of the most beautiful Classical mansions in Denmark. It was built in the 18th C. for F.S. Rantzau. On the roof cornice can be seen coats-of-arms, vases and cornucopia.

Glavendrup

Glavendrup, 18 km/11mi to the southeast of Bogense, is worth a visit to see the restored Viking ship-building rig. On a runic stone is a detailed inscription ending with a threat to damage the stone.
