    Sunday could be quite calm as also Saturday afternoon. If you really wanna see this old part as a living town.. you should visit it in business hours. Otherwise you find only the restaurants are open.

    The town of Ebeltoft was chartered in 1301 by King Erik Menved. The municipal charter gave Ebeltoft the right to engage in trade and artisan work. It will celebrate its 700th birthday soon. The town itself is hundreds of years older than its official beginning, and for many years was very poor. Because the seamen and artisans that lived there had...

  • A stroll through the quiet residential...

    It is well worth the time and effort to stroll through Ebeltoft's narrow streets and see the homes built in the 1600s and 1700s. A lack of pedestrian traffic makes the journey more pleasant. Also, many older Danish homes have brightly-painted multicolor doors and window sills.

  • Ebeltoft church

    Sometimes the small churches are as interesting, and sometimes more so, than the larger churches in the large European cities, some of which tend to be a bit overrated. This little church is packed with history, and its origins date back to around the late 1300s and early 1400s. The great thing about Scandanavian churches is that many have their...

  • The harbour

    The harbour boasts a classic tall ship, the history of which escapes me, but there are some restaurants and shops, but more importantly, fishing boats! Fishing boats give the harbour a bit more of an industrial feel, which makes you feel like you're in a real harbour!More about the ship on my next visit!

Finally it was restored in more recent times, and there is even a jail you can visit in the...

    Not quite Danish but this berbecue buffet you can sure check out. It says 'Spis hvad du kan' or all you can eat.

  • Nautical all the way

    My workmates and I felt it worth the drive from Århus to Ebeltoft solely to visit the Ebeltoft Røgeri. The seafood is great, the have a great dark beer, and the staff is friendly. I hope to have a few more visits here. We loved the name, but it requires some British humour (sic) and an inside knowledge to explain--I'll skip the details.

    Great atmosphere in this Bar ,....The Den Skaeve Bar is translated to the Falling Down Bar ...This is evident when you see it as the bar is on a slope and looks as if its about to fall down ...

    There are lots of local drinks to sample here including one not so pleasant drink " North Sea Oil " the locals call it , and it is lethal....

    There is often Live music on in here ...Folk, Jazz, Rock ...basically anything really ..

    The locals of Ebeltoft make you feel very welcome and I really enjoyed my stay ..

    Favorite thing: Just from the edge of the old town you see the motorway to get to Ebeltoft and sea. Its a good idea to come in summer also to get a bit sun or hike since beach and forests are maintained.
