The best way to see this former Denmark military stronghold is to walk Fredericia's mighty City Walls, then ascend the White Water Tower. Remnants of Fredericia’s days as a military stronghold can also be found throughout its narrow streets. Today this quaint town set amid the panoramic landscape of the Jutland Peninsula, is best known for its laid-back seaside vibe and sightseeing possibilities. In the center of town is a peaceful beach ideal for fishing or for soaking in the laid-back atmosphere of this family and pedestrian-friendly Danish town. Take a stroll along the town’s monumental fortified walls. Built in the 1600s, these ramparts remain some of the most well-preserved in Europe, with antique cannons and historic monuments to battles past found along the way. The flip side to Fredericia is its resort town ambiance. Wander golden beaches past favorite fishing spots on your Fredericia cruise. Pop into any number of charming cafes for traditional Danish dishes, from sausages to “smorrebrod”, a classic open-face sandwich. The town’s pedestrian streets are dotted with local shops and boutiques where you can pick up all sorts of keepsakes and souvenirs. Or, visit Mini-Town, a lifelike replica of Fredericia as it was in 1849, built in one-tenth the size. From the offbeat to the awe-inspiring, Fredericia does not disappoint.
