Learning about Nature

There is ample opportunity to get close to nature and experience it in new ways.

Middelfart's 117 km of coastline stretches from Wedellsborg Hoved to the south and the beach at Varbjerg Strand to the north. The meandering landscape has significant traces of its Ice Age past.
The winding Little Belt in all its natural beauty was formed by glaciers as they advanced northwards and southwards.
More than 20,000 years ago, ice pushed its way through the Kattegat towards the Little Belt. A few thousand years later, ice pushed its way from the south from the Baltic Sea towards Middelfart and across the Fønshav Peninsula. The scenic winding contours we now know that you can experience today were shaped by the melting ice glaciers.
