Stories about what a small number of locals with the right inclination and focus can accomplish are presented for you at the harbour in Ebeltoft. Here, glass artist Finn Lynggard and managing director Erling Rasmussen of Kvadrat, a leading manufacturer of design textiles, worked together closely in the 1980s to bring into being an international museum for modern glass art. Today the Glass Museum in Ebeltoft is recognised globally, and is the only museum of its kind.

The "slaughterhouse lot" (Slagterigrunden) – a new urban area
A centre for maritime cultural heritage is being developed in connection with the frigate "Jylland". This centre will be actively focusing on Denmark as a seafaring nation seen from a national and international perspective, including live presentations in workshops, a unique educational platform, traineeships and jobs as well as a Nordic knowledge centre.
The foundation RealDania is carrying out the project”Places in the landscape” at the castle ruins of Kalø, including a range of architectonic initiatives that serve to “uplift” the experience in this an already very spectacular place.
Plans have been made to reconstruct the culture-historical building ”Lystøndeskuret” from the area ”Holmen” in Copenhagen in the form of a local hall in the old fishing harbour of Ebeltoft. The building will provide the setting for various cultural activities and open workshops focusing on maintenance of the boats of the fishing harbour as well as the renovation of historical fishing vessels.
The revised master plan is prepared on background of assessment and treatment of the posts, objections and comments that emerged in
debate between the Masterplan of Ebeltoft Havnefront.
The many posts has been imaginative and detailed, and has given rise to a more specific processing of the master plan.
