July 5.- 6. Nyborg once again relived the splendour of Danehof, the Danish medieval parliament, and the medieval court when Queen Margrethe 1. visited her castle bringing along her 7-year old son Oluf - just like in 1377. Knights, soldiers, craftsmen and merchants gathered around the old castle, and the tournament square in front of the city hall once again witnessed  the knights in a melée and a joust with solid lances.

When Danehof Days 2014 begin on July 5 and 6 in Nyborg, there will be a great procession through the town. Escorted by knights, soldiers, musicians and other good citizens, Queen Margrethe I and her son, 7 year old Oluf, will majestically enter her town, just as she did in 1377. Back then, a large number of bishops, knights, squires and their followers accompanied her to the Danehof gathering at Nyborg Castle, where the assumption of power after the election of Oluf as king the previous year was to be affirmed by the Danehof Parliament. This was the first step towards creating the Kalmar Union, which from 1396-97 combined the three Nordic countries under one regent.

During the fall break, (October 11-19), the book will be presented at several libraries on Fyn (Funen).

Spring is upon us, and this means there will once again be a dig on the castle grounds. The excavation, which began on April 30 and is expected to be completed by the end of May, is part of the archaeological investigation that has been going on at Nyborg Castle for the last five years. This year's excavation will hopefully give some answers to interesting questions that arose during earlier digs. Among other things, archaeologists are searching for the eastern end of a stone building from the 1200's that was found in 2012.
