Nyborg Harbor

Lars’s mother lives very close to the harbor of Nyborg, so we often go there for a walk.

The first thing that was constructed was a steel mill and then a whole residential area for the workers. Eisenhüttenstadt was supposed to be a socialist model city. Most of the architecture was initially influenced…
