Nature Park Lillebælt’s Nature Room in the Canal District: Learn about the Little Belt
Visit Nature Park Lillebælt’s new nature room in the Canal District of Fredericia and learn a lot more about everything that goes on under water. The nature room functions both as a space for dissemination and activity, and the focus is on the Little Belt.
Life in the Little Belt, Porpoises and Much More!
The nature room of the Canal District faces the Little Belt at the entrance of Gammel Havn (The Old Habour) and is shaped like a porpoise with a large porpoise pictured on the side. The nature room has a particular focus on, among other things, the small porpoise and all the other animals that live in the Little Belt. Learn more by reading the many beautiful boards, which can be found in the nature room.
Plenty of Activities in the Nature Room
The nature room in the Canal District is not just a knowledge centre. It is also possible to try different activities focusing on the Little Belt. For example, go up to the roof of the nature room and see how many porpoises you can spot through the binoculars, which are placed on the roof.
You can also bring your fishing rod, because in the nature room you will also find information about fishing periods in the Little Belt and a guide to when fish are too small to be caught.
Experience Per Obling’s Wooden Sculptures at the Nature Room
At the nature room in the Canal District you can now also experience wood sculptor Per Obling’s beautiful wooden sculptures. The sculptures, which are inspired by the Little Belt, were made during the nature art festival as part of The Fortress Days 2023.
Events and Guided Tours for the Whole Family
Both Nature Park Lillebælt and Det Grønne Fredericia regularly organize different events, activities and guided tours for young and old, and several of them start at the nature room.
