On the path of Nyborg's Past

 I forbindelse med anlæggelsen af den nye bydel
Nyenstad i 1540erne og byens nye fæstningsverker
anlagde man for første gang en større skibsbro
i sydlig forlængelse af byen. Indtil da lå Nyborgs
havn ved Knudshoved. Fra den nye "Strandport"
skulle kongen kunne ride standsmessigt ind i
sin residensstad med 300 ryttere. Byen var nøje
anlagt, så alle der rejste gennem Nyborg - via
Strandporten og Landporten - også måtte forbi
både slot og turneringsplads.
(English translation:)
In connection with the construction of the new district of
Nyenstad in the 1540s and the city's new fortifications,
for the first time, a large bridge was built
in southern extension of the city. Until then, Nyborgs harbor had been located at the
harbor at Knudshoved. From the new "Strand Port"
the king would now be able to ride readily to
his royal residence with 300 riders. The city was carefully
laid out, so that everyone who traveled through Nyborg - via
the Strand Port and the Land Port - also had to pass
both the castle and tournament (i.e., jousting) space.
