The Market Square in Bogense
The town square is surrounded by houses from the 18th century and lime trees planted in 1871. It has been the town’s market square since the Middle Ages, and a market is still held here every Thursday.
All the town’s craftsmen lived on the square. They had a monopoly on their work, just as the merchants had a monopoly on selling goods at 2 miles from town.
BogenseBorgerskole was built in 1853 and served as a school until 1920. There was also a school here before the 19th century.
The wood pump is a copy of the original public pump that stood in the middle of the square.
