BOGENSE CITY

MARKET TOWN ON NORTH OF FUNEN

Adventure and maritime atmosphere

Bogense has been a market town for over 700 years and is the smallest one on Funen.

The town’s location at the northwest corner of Funen, right by the water, was sufficiently isolated to the avoidance of the rapid development that the industrialization led to so many other places in the country.

The old part of Bogense city is a living museum and the special market town is – as well as many buildings – well preserved.

Here you will find picturesque old houses and merchant’s houses. Historical icons are the town square and the old cluster of houses but also the old port.

The city has a wide variety of shops with really old-fashioned market trade, a fabulous beach and the largest marina for yachts on Funen is also found here.

Throughout the summer Bogense hosts many exciting events. Do for example not miss Old market day, Bogense by Night and the many pedestrian way events with different entertainment.

Distance from the campsites reception to the city center is 750 meters and the nearest supermarket 350 meters.

Shopping possibilities in Bogense

In town you can find supermarkets and discount shops. MENY is only a few hundred meters from the campsite and has a nice assortment of daily groceries and delicaties from their own butcher.

Within walking distance you can find groceries shops like MENY, REMA 1000, Fakta and Netto

Manneken Pis

The Manneken Pis statue in Bogense – which is a copy of the Manneken in Brussels – have a very special story.

In the 19th hundred, Bogense was the most northern crossing point between Funen and Jutland, with a connection to Klakring by Juelsminde.

One day, when the ferry arrived to Bogense, and all passengers had left, a crewmember found an infant. The captain searched for the parents, but no one signed up.

The boy, Willum Fønss, was adopted by butcher Levinsohn and grew up in Bogense.

On March 20, 1934, his daughter Dutchess Rosenkrantz donated the little bronze statue as a thank you for the good raising of her father. Back then, the little naked boy was not so popular for everyone in town – some thought he should be wearing pants.

He did not get any pants though, but on special occasions Manneken Pis gets dressed, like for christmas etc.

Bogense Watertower

Bogenses old watertower, was built at the same time as the town, one of the last in Funen, got its waterworks.

Originally, it was the idea to build it in the middle of the town square. But thanks to protests from the town citizens, the plans where changed, to build it where it is today. The watertower that rises in the middle of the town center, has also been used as a vantage point, for the citizens and visitors to enjoy the beautiful view of the city and area.

The view towards Lillebælt and Jutland – and not to forget – Æbelø, is quite unique. It can be enjoyed on a sunny summerday, from the open platform on the top of the tower.

Since the closing of the waterworks, the tower has been open for visitors regularly.

Today the tower is also open, and it is possible to enjoy the view in combination with changing artshows.

Klokkespillet

Klokkespillet med sine 18 klokker lader flere gange dagligt sine smukke toner lyde fra tårnet på Bogense Rådhus. Hver gang spilles en ny dejlig melodi.

Repertoiret byder på årstidens sange fra den danske og internationale sangskat samt mange af vore dejlige salmer.
Ligeledes skifter repertoiret flere gange årligt.

Klokkespillets historie: Ved Bogense bys 700 års jubilæum, i 1988, blev der blandt borgerne startet en indsamling til en gave til byen – et klokkespil til tårnet på Bogense Rådhus.

Hoveddonator var fhv. fiskeskipper Aksel Damgaard.
Ligeledes gav det daværende Fyns Amt et større tilskud til byens borgergave.
Resten af beløbet blev indsamlet blandt borgerne.

Bybækken

Bogense – havfruernes by

Historien bag Bogense Bybæk går tilbage til år 1755. Du finder bybækken midt i Bogense by, hvor en sti fører forbi Sophus Jensens Gård, som er resterne af den gamle Købmandsgaard i byen.

Bækken udspringer ved en sundhedskilde ved Reveldrup, forbi Fredskoven og bugter sig ind gennem byen. I middelalderen blev den betragtet som en helbredende kilde.

Den har gennem tiderne både været vaskeplads for byens kvinder, vandreserve ved ildebrand samt drikkevandsforsyning.

Det siges også at havfruerne, som havde deres slot lige nord for Bogense, svømmede i bybækken, og derfor kaldes Bogense idag – Bogense – havfruernes by. Man er ikke rigtig Bogenser, før man har været en tur i bybækken.
