Next summer, the Disney Magic will be adding a new port-of-call to select European sailings – Fredericia, Denmark. Fredericia features charming streets, beautiful churches, and old houses within the town’s 17th-century walls.
Fredericia is located in the center of the country and serves as a gateway to other locations in Denmark – may with a strong Viking history. Guests might even catch the Disney connection to a nearby home of a popular fairy tale author who inspired many of you favorite Disney classics.
Here is just a sampling of what you can enjoy at this enchanting port-of-call:
Picturesque Views: Go for a stroll along Fredericia’s mighty city walls, the best-preserved ramparts in Northern Europe, where you can experience all of its charm up close. Then find a different perspective: You can climb to the top of White Water Tower for stunning panoramic views of the town, beach and surrounding hills and woods, or explore the exhibits and gardens at Fredericia Town Museum for a look at the city’s colorful past.
Soak Up the Sun: Swim, sunbathe, dine or enjoy a game of volleyball at Østerstrand, a pristine beach near the city center. Or make your way to Madsby Legepark, where you can enjoy a family picnic on the lovely greens — plus, kids will love the park’s playgrounds, activities and summertime puppet shows.
Stop for a Delicious Quick Bite to Eat: Head to a café to sample local delicacies. Traditional Danish sausages, open-face sandwiches, rich potato dishes, pickled veggies, meatballs and cured fish are all worth a try. Top it all off with fresh ice cream or ostebord, a cheese plate served after a meal with wine, grapes and crackers.
Venture Past the Port: Take advantage of the easy access to some of Denmark’s most famous historical sites such as the Jelling monuments. The monuments are a collection of standing stones and burial mounds which mark the site of of where Viking King Harald Bluetooth erected a run stone to announce his achivements and christen Denmark over 1,000 years ago.
You can also take a quick trip to Odense, the main city on the beautiful island of Funern. This is where you can visit the home of Hans Christian Andersen who inspired Disney movies such as “Frozen” and “The Little Mermaid.” There are also numerous museums and activity centers nearby that bring added meaning to his popular fairy tales.
Fredericia is a featured port-of-call on a Disney Cruise Line 10-night Northern Europe cruise from Copenhagen to Dover, England on Aug. 8, 2019.
