Frederiksvaerk is a Danish city that has a huge amount of history associated with it. It is a designated Danish Industry Commemoration site. In the 18th century, it was decided by King Frederik the Fourth that there should be a canal dug through the town. This canal stands today and is from where the town gets its name from. There are many old buildings built along the banks of the canal.
When you stay in a hostel in Frederiksvaerk, be sure to ask the landlords where to go. The locals are the best source of information, better than any tourist pamphlet. The hostels are additionally clean and affordable. Your top recommendation is bound to be the Museum of Gunpowder, a monument to the industrial history of the city.
This is an open-air museum that was once a powder mill in the 19th century. The original machines in the powder mills and old tools are still preserved today. After a visit to the museum the best way to unwind is to go to one of the many farms, restaurants, and steakhouses for a filling meal. Traditional Danish cuisine is mixed with the best hospitality in Frederiksvaerk.
At some hostels, you can ask your landlord whether you can rent out fishing gear. The lake Aresso in the city is a large lake where it is permitted to go fishing. You can only fish in designated parts of the lake. Alternatively, you can go fishing in the Isefjord and Kattegat.
Finally, if you are a fan of the sea, you should check out the North Sealand Coast. This is a coast that stretches for over 400 kilometers. It has a variety of activities open to you, including the beach volleyball, windsurfing, and more. While here, check out the harbors and marinas on the coast. They are all open and a great place to enjoy the sea breeze.
