Come along with Jakob and Johanne on an exciting tour in the Mayor’s Yard.

Jakob and Johanne were children of Mayor Mads Lerche, who had the house built in 1601. Along with the house elf, Mads, they will tell you about their father, who was also a successful merchant, and about the Mayor’s Yard in Nyborg during the Renaissance period. They will also tell you what it was like to live during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

You can hear about food and drink, knights, the great explorers, music and theater, magical and supernatural beings, school days and the alchemist’s workshop. Jakob and Johanne will help you to explore  the new exhibitions, where there are lots of things to see and touch, play with and learn all about life for children in the Renaissance period.
