Norsminde - experiences and harbour atmosphere

Crabbing, delicious fish meatballs and ice cream by the water are calling you. Norsminde is a magnet when the weather is good. Cosiness and history are paramount at the small harbour town. Take the family for a few hours of fresh air and maritime charm. 

Harbour hygge in the middle between fjord and sea

Since the 13th century, boats and ships have docked in the small harbour at the entrance to Norsminde Fjord. Throughout this time, the harbour has served as an oasis for sailors, passers-by and tourists. For hundreds of years, the area’s lifeblood has been the royally privileged inn, which is still open to this day. In addition to beautiful inn stays, Norsminde Kro offers both high-level cuisine, popular dining experiences and an ice cream parlour with homemade Italian ice cream. 

The overlooked fjord

Norsminde Fjord - if you are not local, you may not know it. But it’s beautiful, nonetheless. You can’t sail into the fjord, and you can’t get down to it on foot. It is popular for kayaking - if you do not have a kayak yourself, then Odder Museum sometimes arranges kayak trips on the fjord

We also recommend a bicycle ride around the fjord through a peaceful, agricultural area, where there are several places with fantastic views of the fjord. In general, Norsminde is a good destination for cycling, and the Culture Ring and National Cycle Route 5, and the East Coast Route, pass through the town. If you need a bicycle, you can hire one from nearby Saksild Strand Camping.
