Nordby - Fanø's Capital
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 felt at the harbour. From the promenade, one can sit and enjoy the many wading birds. Moreover, seals often lie on the small sandbank only 50 metres from the harbour.
In comparison with old photographs, you can see that many of the small streets and paths have not changed significantly for centuries. You shouldn’t let yourself miss out on the great experience it is to walk about in the small crooked streets in Nordby.
Nordby is also a modern and active little town. With its 2,800 inhabitants, Nordby is the commercial and administrative centre on Fanø. Town Hall, the Health Centre, the Public Library, the Sports Centre, the Tourist Office and other institutions are located here.
