Erik Menveds Inn, a beautiful half-timbered house, is the oldest inn of not only Bogense, but all of Funen, dated back to 1543.
The place is named after the king Erik Menved who, in 1288 gave Bogense its municipal charter.
In town and in local gossip, the building is called "the eye". Tradition says that once a watchmaker white washed all the windows, and then he made a peephole and watched the town life through the "eye".
