Kerteminde Town Historical Archives

At the Kerteminde Town Historical Archives, you can find the answer to almost everything about the local area's culture and history.

You don't have to have a specific question to use the archives. If you want to browse through our collections, for example to read old newspapers or look at old photos from the town, you're welcome to spend a couple of hours in the reading room.

Contribute to local history

Our collections consist of donations received by the archives since they opened in 1955, and the collecting never ends! You can help us collect; any items that add to our knowledge of the community are of interest.

Opening hours

The archives are open on Mon.-Thurs. from 1:00 - 3:00 PM.

The archives are closed between Christmas and New Year.
