The Old Merchant’s Courtyard

A sentimental Journey

Discover a small piece of Faaborg during its flourishing period of 18th and 19th century. A visit to the old Merchant’s Courtyard will take both young and old on a journey to the golden ages of our market town. Inside this picturesque half-timbered house, you can stroll through beautiful rooms with treasures that were brought home from voyages on the great oceans. Or were imported from the local island Lyø, like the collection of fine embroideries.

Teahouse with a view

The museum garden includes a teahouse that invites you to take a break and enjoy the view over the Archipelago. Inside, you will also find games, books and toys to play with.

Get the past of Faaborg right under your skin, when you visit “Den Gamle Gaard”. The entrance is situated close to the Town Jail museum and hosts a cozy little shop of handcraft products to bring home as a souvenir.
