Renovation of Nyborg Castle Resumes with Increased Funding and Support

After a long period of standstill, there is finally good news for Nyborg Castle. The renovation work, which has been on hold since 2020, is now resumed with fresh funds and renewed energy. This historical project, which originally started back in 2014, has faced a number of challenges, but now sees brighter days ahead with an expected completion in 2028. The total budget for the project is now up to 327.6 million Danish kroner. This includes significant contributions from both private and public sources: the A.P. Møller Foundation and Realdania have each donated 80 million kroner, Nyborg Municipality contributes 53.4 million kroner, and the state has allocated 114.2 million kroner for the purpose. The renovation had originally been planned to be completed in 2023, but a series of delays have pushed this goal further into the future. These delays have also resulted in increased project costs.

Nyborg Castle, which can be traced back more than 800 years, is Denmark’s oldest preserved royal residence and has played a central role in the country’s history. Minister of Culture Jacob Engel-Schmidt (Liberal Party) expresses great satisfaction that the castle will soon reopen to the public. “It is a great day for Nyborg, Funen, and all of Denmark,” he says. Mayor of Nyborg, Kenneth Muhs (Conservative Party), also views the resumption of the renovation work positively. “It is the result of many years of hard work, and it marks an important milestone in the castle’s long history,” he states. He also highlights the castle’s significance for both tourism and the local community.

In the future, a new museum wing, a ring wall, and an elevation of the existing watchtower will be added. These additions will make the castle even more attractive to visitors when it reopens in 2028.
