Fredericia Ramparts

The fortified walls that surround the oldest part of Fredericia were built in 1650 to defend Denmark from invaders. Today you can walk along the well-preserved ramparts and bastions and over stately centuries-old gates, soaking up views of the surrounding moat, cannons and various towers. The iconic circular White Tower is the city’s most famous, while the Gunpowder Tower is its oldest, dating from 1675. Also look for the statue of The Brave Soldier on Landsoldat Square, at the main entrance to the city; it pays tribute to a Danish victory in 1849 over the Germans during the First Schleswig War.
