Ebeltoft - Timber Frame Idyll and Cobble Stones - Djursland - Eastjutland

Ebeltoft – Idyllic town with timber-framed buildings and cobblestones - Djursland – East Jutland
The crooked timber-framed houses, the uneven cobbled streets and the blooming Hollyhocks and Roses makes  Ebeltoft one of the towns worthiest for visitors to see in Denmark. 

Ebeltoft got its municipal charter in 1301 and thus is Djursland’s oldest market town. Sitting on a hill that slopes down to Ebeltoft Inlet, the town is full of atmosphere and very popular.
You'll find lots of small shops with handicrafts, fashion, etc. as well as excellent restaurants. In summer, the streets are often full of music or other sorts of entertainment - also at night. The old small-town atmosphere of Ebeltoft reflects a piece of Denmark's history through the centuries.

Throughout the year, visitors are invited to walk on their own along the cobbled business streets Nørrebakke and Adelgade, to Torvet (The Square) with the old City Hall, from there the streets Nedergade and Overgade guides you to the church of Ebeltoft. The surface of Overgade is laid with cut stones, whereas the rest of the street as well as the gutters were laid with rounded natural stones. In times past, one of the town’s gates stood where Kurveleddet joins Overgade. At Strandvejen, you can still see the remains of the old seaweed dikes.
