We look forward to seeing you at Danehof July 3rd - July 5th, 2020! Welcome to Danehof, a big festive folk party dating back to the Middle Ages.

På grund af myndighedernes retningslinjer for større begivenheder er årets Danehof den 3.-5. juli nu aflyst.
”Det er med stor ærgrelse, at vi må aflyse årets Danehof. Men naturligvis må vi gøre det i den nuværende situation. Vi har været i gang med forberedelserne siden august, og vi havde glædet os til at blænde op for historien i Nyborg og sætte Christian 2.’s  planer om et korstog til Grønland i scene med historiske skibe i havnen, skuespil og meget mere. Jeg vil gerne sende min varmeste tak og store beklagelse til de mange frivillige, aktører, samarbejdspartnere og medarbejdere, der allerede har lagt mange timer i planlægningsarbejdet. Vi overvejer nu, hvordan vi kan drage nytte af de mange planer og ideer fra 2020 til næste år, hvor også ridderturneringerne på Torvet igen vil blive et kærkomment gensyn”, siger leder af Nyborg Slot & Kulturarv, Mette Ladegaard Thøgersen.

En af de ting, som Nyborgensere og tilrejsende kan glæde sig til, er udstillingen ”Christian 2. og korstoget til Grønland”, som man kan opleve på Borgmestergården, så snart museet kan åbne dørene for publikum igen. Hvor Danehof skulle være en event-baseret formidling af historien, bliver temaet om Christian 2.’s oversøiske ambitioner foldet ud på anden vis her. Udstillingen giver indblik i datidens verdensbillede og de forventninger, som den planlagte danske ekspedition havde til Grønland og til en forventet opdagelse af en nordlig handelsrute til Indien.

Der er blevet afholdt Danehof i Nyborg siden 2010. Til Danehof 2021 kan Torvet igen være omdrejningspunkt for den store historiske festival, der tiltrækker titusindvis af gæster til Nyborg hvert år.

Danehof i Nyborg

When there was "Danehof" in Nyborg, the most powerful men from all corners of the kingdom were in Nyborg, and it was just as natural that farmers and merchants also went to the center of the kingdom Nyborg - the heart of the Kingdom of Denmark.

The city's population multiplied under a "Danehof", and shopping was done lively from the town's shops and in every conceivable space in the town.

When "Danehof" is celebrated today, there is again a market and plenty of trade and leprosy. There is food and fun, there are trade and happy people. There are several markets gathered around the town. There is entertainment for children and adults - a great experience in the authentic setting of the Middle Ages.

Markets and commercial streets

The historical market is based around Nyborg Castle. Here you will find market stalls and merchandise in true medieval spirit and true authentic medieval atmosphere.

Our Lady Market is also an old tradition in Nyborg. Back in the 13th century, a food market was held on Maria Visiting Day in early July. And what is closer to bringing this tradition to life on July 3rd and July 5th at the Danehof in Nyborg.  The market takes place in the cozy medieval streets that spread out from the tournament site. Here, the stalls of food from near and far abound throughout the Royal Furseburslen. Here, tasty is a king worthy.

Pay your market tax

Getting to Danehof is free, and that's how it should be.

In the Middle Ages, it was customary that the town council was responsible for collecting the town's taxes. If enough taxes were not collected, the council had to pay from its own pocket. We have not continued this custom. However, we hope that you as a guest - quite voluntarily - will support Danehof so that we can continue to develop the market.

For just 20 DKK you can get your very own market sign so everyone can see that you have done your civil duty and supported the King's Danehof. The tax collectors can be found all over the town.
