The Mayor’s Yard is open

Tid: March 24 to October 31, 2018
Sted: The Mayor's Yard

The Mayor’s Yard is now open for the season, with something for the whole family.

The Mayor’s Yard is an historical gem with its facade looking out on the unique heritage district around Nyborg Castle. The building’s history goes back to the 1570’s, but its present appearance dates from the merchant compound that the merchant and the town’s mayor, Mads Lerche, had built in 1601. It is a very distinguished example of Renaissance-era architecture in market towns.

In the cobblestoned courtyard, you can experience the authentic setting from Nyborg in the Renaissance period, enjoy your bag lunch or delicious things from the café. There is often lively activity at the blacksmith shop, by the wood-fired cooker in the kitchen and in the workshop of the Costume Guild; iron is forged and baking, frying, brewing and sewing are diligently done.

At the Mayor’s Yard you can explore Nyborg’s history through several exciting new exhibitions, activities and hands-on workshops, appropriate for children and their families. You’ll find exciting things in the well-stocked museum shop, too.
