Battle Market at Nyborg Castle

Experience the authentic atmosphere of the Middle Ages in the authentic setting of one of the most important fortifications in Danish medieval history.

Nyborg Castle was founded in the 1170s, and right up until modern times, it was a strategically important military fortification – first as a medieval castle and later as a fortress. The castle’s heyday was undoubtedly the period from 1170 until 1560. This was where the Danish parliament – the Danehof – met, and the castle formed the setting for the royal household of the heirs to the throne and the royal court.

The Battle Market always takes place on the second weekend in September.
