This framework has, ever since, been decisive in determining the development of the town. It will now, in cooperation between the museum, the municipality, the state and private foundations, be turned into an asset and a meaningful resource for the future development of Nyborg. In 2016, the restoration and expansion of the castle will be set in motion; its goal is to get Nyborg Castle and town included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

The Minister of Cultural Affairs, Bertel Haarder, will take part in the opening ceremony of the Danehof (Market and Jousting Tournament) on July 2, 2016 at 1 PM.
