Exciting history and unique architecture
As you follow the Baltic Sea Cycle Route, you will encounter lots of history and interesting architecture. Stop along the way when you ride by something that looks interesting. Middelfart has a centuries long history of whaling, which goes back to the 16th century. The stately home of Hindsgavl Slot on the Hindsgavl Peninsula near Middelfart is a place where H.C. Andersen himself stayed as a guest. Further north are the ramparts of Fredericia Vold, the best preserved rampart fortifications in Northern Europe and the site of the battle of Fredericia on 6 July 1849 against the army of Slesvig-Holstein. On a hilltop in the centre of Kolding is Koldinghus, the oldest royal castle in Jutland, which dates back to the 13th century. During its history, Koldinghus has faced hostile invasions and a destructive fire.
