Take a holiday in Middelfart – for beaches, woods and great shopping
Middelfart is a warm and welcoming town with lively shopping that is surrounded by beaches and woodland. Taking a trip to Middelfart guarantees fantastic scenery and a relaxed urban atmosphere, combined with shopping and good food. The pedestrianised Gågaden leads directly down to the harbour, offering a fine view while you shop interspersed with a cup of good coffee.
Have a go at bridge walking on the old Lillebæltsbro, including the obligatory high-altitude selfie 60 metres up. Take in the magnificent view over Middelfart, Fredericia and the Little Belt whilst learning about the bridge's history. You can also get to know the Little Belt intimately in a sea kayak or a five-hour fishing trip on the M/S Medicus.
Middelfart’s location as the link between Funen and Jutland has made the town important through the ages, particularly because of ferries and the town’s main industry of fishing, including for porpoises. You can still come in contact with this smallest species of whales – book a whale safari with ADVENTURA for an up-close experience. Your ticket will also give you entry to Henner Friisers Hus, a child-friendly exhibition on porpoises.
Take a spontaneous weekend break in Middelfart with treatment worthy of royalty at Hindsgavl Slot. Marvel at the castle’s historic interiors and luxurious rooms, dine at the gourmet restaurant Den Hvide Dame, an elegant blending of visual and culinary pleasure. And if you feel the need for the big city experience, Middelfart is less than 30 miles from Odense. If the kids are with you in Middelfart, get them tree-climbing in Aktivitetsskoven, or walking with deer in Hindsgavl Dyrehave.
There is a regular Christmas market on the streets of Middelfart on the last weekend in November. If you are here on holiday during July and August, there are free activities for kids on the beach twice a week under the irresistible heading of “Stroke a fish and kiss a crab”.
Visit this charming market town with sea views all year round. Top shopping and great activities await, not to mention an excellent excuse to spoil yourself thoroughly.
