The Christmas ball of 2012, has been based on the old mayor's house in Nyborg. A picturesque backdrop that every year for Christmas forms the setting for a lot of activities when celebrating Christmas in the old royal town.
The old mayor's house in Nyborg was built in 1601 by the mayor and grocer Mads Lerche (c. 1560-1608).
It was located on one of the main thoroughfares through the town with a beautiful view of Nyborg Castle and continues to be an important part of the unique urban space King Christian III (1536-1559) created as he expanded and fortified both Nyborg Castle and city as a carefully planned royal residence city - indeed, the country's first real capital.
The beautiful half-timbered building houses the city's cultural history museum.
The Christmas ball is produced in a limited number and is made of hand-painted glass.
The ball is sold out.
