When you call at Fredericia Port you dock right in the heart of the city.
Right on the Jutland peninsula is the striking town of Fredericia, a historic Danish military stronghold founded by Frederick III in 1650. Fortified city walls, historic monuments, and military remnants abound throughout the town.
