Ebeltoft is one of the tourist centres of Denmark. It is home to the world’s first glass museums and the longest wooden warship of the world, the Frigate Jylland. Although small and slightly populated, Ebeltoft is very lively in the summer. It’s because tourists are not housed in hotels like every typical holiday season. Ebeltoft has what we call as summer houses or holiday homes. These are mostly made of wood but are very extravagant and liveable. It’s a rather modern city being the home of the critically acclaimed European Film College. Tourists will enjoy Ebeltoft because the people here are noted for being very open-minded to foreigners and well to do when it comes to speaking.

As for museums, Farvergardeb is a very unique specialty museum. There are also restaurants to enjoy, the Molskroen and the Oer Peter Foldby. They serve Danish cuisine with a local taste of Ebeltoft city.
