Ride your two wheeler to the Reformation

Tid: All of 2017
Sted: Eastern Funen

Ride to explore the picturesque landscape of eastern Funen and get fantastic insight into history in a fun and healthy way. 

In 2017 we mark 500 years since the munk called Martin Luther started the Reformation in Germany. This had repercussions - even in eastern Funen, where the royal residence at Nyborg was in the centre of dramatic events.
Ride with the Museums of Eastern Funen around to experience the Reformation on eastern Funen, and enjoy the rolling and lovely landscapes of our two Reformation bike routes. You’ll see everything from holy, Catholic relics in village churches to magnificent manour houses to the centre of royal power in Nyborg - the first Danish Reformation capital - with Nyborg Castle as the focal point for King Christian III’s new Protestant kingdom.
The Museums of Eastern Funen has published special maps with the bike routes and an historical description of all the points on the map. GPS-coordinates are given, so it will be easy to find your way.

At the Tourist Bureau on the square in Nyborg you can get the printed maps free of charge.
