Nordby - the "Capital" of Fanø
From Esbjerg the ferry sails to Fanø - a nice little travel of about 12 minutes. Time enough to let the mind relax. Nordby is a small and cosy town. Lot of beautiful old houses. Surrounded by great nature.
The closeness to nature is already to bee seen at Langelinie - the promenade along the harbour. There are many birds and at low tide very often seals on the tiny sandbank "Søjorden".
One of the oldest inns in Denmark is in Nordby - Fanø Krogaard dating back to 1664.
Nordby is also a modern town with about 2.800 inhabitants. The town is the administrative center of Fanø with City Council, school, doctors, sports area and city council.
