In Fredericia we are proud to welcome several cruise ships each year. The town is full of life and you can hear many different languages in the streets. Usually, the shops are open which attracts people from near and far. There are also many activities on the quay, where you can see the ships up close.
Experience the special atmosphere on the quay when the cruise ships arrive or depart, or take a walk on the ramparts, where you have a wonderful view of the harbour and the cruise ships.
The cruise ships offer a range of organized excursions. If you have not pre-booked a trip or if you just want to explore the area on your own, you can find inspiration and information here.
Until 1650, there was just a bare piece of land at the narrowest point of the Little Belt. After a number of unsuccessful wars, the peninsula in the Little Belt area needed fortification.
