Nyborg is a city in central Denmark, located in Nyborg Municipality on the island of Funen and with a population of 16,577 (as of 1 January 2012). Nyborg is one of the 14 large municipalities created on 1 January 2007. This change boosted the population of Nyborg Municipality from around 18,000 to 31,009.

History

Nyborg was first mentioned in 1193 in the history of Denmark as Nyborg Castle, which still exists today, but the town itself was not mentioned before the year 1202. In the 17th century, Nyborg was one of three major, fortified towns in Denmark, together with Fredericia and Copenhagen. Each was placed near an important body of water - in Nyborg's case, the Great Belt (Storebælt). In 1659 the city was captured by theSwedes and relieved by an expeditionary fleet sent by the Dutch, then Denmark's allies, commanded by admiral De Ruyter.

In 1867 the fortress was abolished and the town expanded beyond the ramparts. Much of the town's southern ramparts were destroyed in this process and converted into residential areas. The western and much of the northern ramparts still exist and form the scene of an annual theatre known as Nyborg Voldspil, which is Denmark's oldest outdoor theater.

From 1183 to 1413 it was the gathering place for Danehoffet, which was the country's legislative and judicial assembly. Nyborg is therefore considered Denmark's capital during this period. Christian II of Denmark was born at Nyborg Castle.

In 2005, plans about expanding Nyborg Harbour came to life and Nyborg Harbour, which previously connected Funen to Sealand with the old ferries (until 1996) now contains several large luxury-apartment buildings.

Valdemars Castle

Valdemar's Castle (Danish: Valdemars Slot) is a small palace situated on the island of Tåsinge near Svendborg in southern Denmark.

History

Valdemar's Castle was commissioned by King Christian IV (1588–1648) and built between 1639 and 1644 under the supervision of his architect Hans van Stenwinkel. "Castle" is how the local population refer to the building when speaking English, but despite the ornamental cannons outside, it is not a fortification, but rather, a large mansion house. The nearest fortification to Valdemar's Slot was Kærstrup voldsted, two kilometers to the west, today a copse near the junction of Vievej and Nørreskovvej.

King Christian was well-known for his interest in building. Tåsinge, the island where Christian planned to have Valdermar's Slot built, belonged to his mother in law Ellen Marsvin. He intended the new mansion should become the home of his son Valdemar Christian, whose mother was Kirstine Munk. In the event, Valdemar Christian never occupied the place, and in 1656 was killed during a battle in Poland.

In 1678 the naval hero, Admiral Niels Juel, was given title to the castle and the land on Tåsinge after his victory over Sweden in the Battle of Køge Bay in 1677. The estate was transferred to him as payment for the Swedish ships captured in the battle.

Today

The present owner, Baron Iuel-Brockdorff, who is 11th generation of the Juel family, took over his childhood home from his father in 1971 and lives in the castle with his wife and family. Valdemars Slot has been open to the public since 1974. The mansion is open from May to October and on public holidays. It features a large chapel, a toy museum, the Iuel-Brockdorff family's big game trophy collection and a local maritime museum. As it stands close by the shore, many visitors make the trip from Svendborg using the veteran ferry Helge.
