The Tourist Attractions of Fredericia:
The small town of Skaerbaek has a beautiful sandy beach which can be a busy spot in the summer months. You can go boating, swimming or just walk along the picturesque streets of this old fishing village, just a few kilometres outside of Fredericia.
Walk the City Walls
The old walls of Fredericia are still in place around the city and provide a historical route around the city centre for walks. There are statues, ramparts, gates and even cannons in place along the wall which will make for an interesting walk. Start your trek at the King’s Gate to see everything.
Palsgaard Lake is stocked with trout for fishing and fishing is really the main attraction there. You’ll need a daily permit but you can enjoy a few hours of peace and quiet while doing a little fishing. There is no beach, but a few picnic tables and shelters if you are going to be there a while. It’s a short drive north of the city.
Fjord Boat Tours
The coastal location of Fredericia makes it a good place to take off on the water for a boat tour of the local fjords. Nearby fjords include the Vejle Fjord, Kolding Fjord and Horsens Fjord but various tour companies may have trips that go farther from Fredericia to see several others.
Madsby Play Park
This is a great destination for anyone travelling with younger children though it can be a fun stop with older kids too. There are outdoor play parks, a petting zoo, boating, and more. You can get ice cream and snacks there, or bring your own food for a picnic.
The zoo is in the next town of Borkop but it is only a short drive away from Fredericia. You can see more than 100 species of animals, including several African animals like zebras and monkeys, and also more domesticated animals in farm areas for the children. It’s not a huge zoo but there is a good variety of animals to see.
