Don't be frightened of a walking tour. When you dock in Fredericia you'll have the feeling of being in the middle of the town. The town is small and very walkable.
As we walk through the old fortified town, we pass the old town hall and the catholic church from the 1700ds. Sct. Michaelis church is still a garrison church. Our route takes us past the statue of The Brave Soldier on the square named after him, Landsoldatpladsen. The splendid cannons and mortars stand proudly on the ramparts, and we also see the White Tower (Det Hvide Vandtårn), one of the town's icons.

Poul was very informative and kept our 9 year old involved in the discussions as we walked through the town. The route was very thorough.
