Ebeltoft - Tourist town no. 1 on Djursland
Ebeltoft's old town centre oozes of nostalgia. Cafés, restaurants and interesting shops are located idyllically in the winding medieval streets with cobblestones, half-timbered houses and hollyhocks. The town of Ebeltoft, with its historic town environment, is part of the national park. The town square is the heart of Ebeltoft, where market merchants, watchmen and the old town hall form a unique setting. Here, many tourists for example enjoy the weekly jazz concert.
There are activities all year round in Ebeltoft. Meet the Molboers in the town streets during the summer months, listen to jazz in the square starting Whitsun Saturday, and there is also the car-boot market during Sundays as well as the summer party. During the autumn holiday, there is the Ebel festival, where you and your family are invited to see and experience activities focused on apples.

Ebeltoft, the cosy commercial town, are the citizens proud of, and it is matter of honour for them to make tourists feel welcome. Furthermore, Ebeltoft has the widest selection of grocery shops in Djursland.
The old town hall in Ebeltoft is used by citizens and guests of
the town for weddings. Couples from all over Denmark, and
often other countries as well, come to Ebeltoft to be married in
this old, charming town hall, which is also a museum that is
open to the public during the summer. The old town hall, which
is the town's nationally known landmark, also contains
Museum Østjylland. The watchmen are a beautiful and
atmospheric attraction. During the peak season, the watchmen
do their rounds in Ebeltoft from the stairs in front of the old
town hall, and their
clear singing voices can be heard from far away. When Christmas is approaching, the watchmen can also be heard and seen as they patrol the old streets.
Ebeltoft is home to the frigate Fregatten Jylland - the longest wooden ship in the world, as well as the glass museum Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, which is known throughout the world for its unique collection of international modern glass art.
