Fredericia Vacation Packages
From attractive beaches and a forest-filled countryside to old churches and ancient fortifications, a vacation in Fredericia presents a huge range of possibilities.
The town is named after Frederick III who founded the settlement in the middle of the 17th century. Start your tour with an introduction to the city's early years, which are presented in the Town Museum. Learn about Denmark's military struggles with Austria and how Fredericia transitioned from fortified stronghold to city.
Then go for a stroll around the Mini-Town, a scaled down version of how Fredericia looked in 1849. It is composed of more than 700 miniature buildings, including homes, churches and farms.
See remnants of Fredericia’s actual past when you visit the town park. View ramparts, moats, bastions and canons as you stroll through the picturesque landscape. Jump forward in military history at the Bunkermuseum, which presents exhibits that focus on Fredericia's role in World War II.
For more history, stop by Egeskov Church, a Romanesque village church that was built in the 12th century. If you love exploring churches, check out Hannerup Church, which was consecrated in 1974. This unusual looking building is constructed of wood and glass, features an open layout and has a curved wall passing through the interior.
After your architectural and historical discoveries, take time to relax on and by the water. Head to Fredericia's waterfront to unwind on the sands of Østerstrand. Set sail from the harbor on an old-fashioned yacht for a trip to the nearby isle of Fænø.
If there are children in your party, take them to splash around the Fredericia Aquapark, which features waterslides, spas and a bio sauna. Kids will also enjoy the colorful play equipment at the indoor Dino’s Playland and the activities and attractions at Madsby Legepark.
Fredericia fascinates with its history, architecture and scenery. It is located on Jutland's east coast and can be reached by road and rail from major towns in Denmark. Alternatively, fly into the airport at Billund, approximately 32 miles (52 kilometers) away.
