700 years' history
The market town of Ebeltoft is part of the National Park. The main street in well-preserved downtown Ebeltoft is Adelgade. It runs parallel to the coast and opens out to a square at its southern end.
Here stands The Old Town Hall, which is renowned far and wide. It was built in 1789 and was in use as a town hall up to 1840. Today, it houses part of the Museum of East Jutland. Adelgade and its extensions after the square, Overgade and Nedergade, offer the best routes for discovering old buildings.
Adelgade also offers speciality shops and restaurants. Jernbanegade (railroad street) intersects with Adelgade. From 1901 to 1968, the railroad stopped at Ebeltoft.
There are several interesting museums in the town:
The Museum of East Jutland in The Old Town Hall and the building behind it.
Farvergården, Adelgade 15.
Fregatten Jylland (the frigate Jutland).
Glasmuseet Ebeltoft (glass museum)
