Sea trading port

Around the year 1200, Middelfart was called Melfar. Melfar means ’the waters you travel between’. Middelfart was, and still is, the crossing point between Funen and Jutland. In the past the crossing was from Kongebrohavnen, close to the old bridge, to Snoghøj on the Jutland side. When the old Little Belt Bridge was opened in 1935 trains, cars and pedestrians crossed the Belt via the bridge. Thus, Strib lost its status as a ferry town through which all rail transport used to come. Middelfart’s old harbour runs parallel to the pedestrian street and stretches into the beech woods a bit further on. At the Old Harbour you can see many old wooden boats, the Lillebælt shipyard and boathouses. It is also from here you can take a boat trip on the Little Belt, for example a whale safari on the AVENTURA and Mira3. From Middelfart’s charming old harbour you can stroll up into the old part of town. Here you can see the old half-timbered houses in the narrow streets leading down to the Little Belt.
