A look at the old Munkebo in mini size
At Bakkely 50, Munkebo has an exciting little attraction that is worth a visit. It is a mini-city which consists of approx. 100 mini-houses, down to the detail, are exact copies of the houses from the old Munkebo fishing village, as it looked in 1956 before the establishment of the Lindøværftet created a stir in the small community. The exhibition also includes a board exhibition which tells the whole story of the area from past to present.
It is possible to visit the workshop during working hours, where a group of unpaid, active seniors work on the small mini houses.

September to May:
