Architecture and Churches

If you are interested in architecture you can find a variety of both historical and modern architecture in Middelfart and Fredericia. You can visit Middelfart's harbour front and Culture House, beautifully situated with a panoramic view of both Little Belt Bridges. Fredericia is home to historical buildings and sites, but modern architectural projects are under way as well. A large area by the harbour front is being developed into a new Canal District with uniquely designed buildings. A winner has also been found in an architectural competition for the renewal of the Ramparts in Fredericia.
