About Eksercerhuset and Bülow Barracks
Eksercerhuset is part of the now defunct Bülow Barracks. The building was constructed in 1863 and was one of the first buildings on the barracks site. It was used as a training hall by the town's private soldiers when the weather was too bad for outdoor training and as a shooting gallery in winter.
Periodically the building was also rented out and used for other events such as concerts, shows, plays, etc. The town's first trade fairs from 1913 to 1915, for example, were held in Eksercerhuset.
The rest of the barracks were constructed during the 1930s. The barracks are named after the famous general Frederik Bülow, who was instrumental in The Battle of Fredericia.
The barracks were dismantled in 2014 and then bought by Fredericia Municipality. Today they serve as a cultural meeting place under the name Kulturkasernen (the Culture Barracks).
