In Bogense, you can see the world's oldest holly - it is located in the garden at the cafe, and you are welcome to walk into the garden and see it.

The tree is planted by a young tobacco roller who bought the property Adelgade 58 from the hotel owner in 1908, tore the building down and built the current house in which he himself had a tobacco production as well as a shop and, moreover, a small slaughterhouse that was in use until the 1970's.

The holly was planted in 1908, and is now 110 years old and thus the oldest survivor of its species, according to legend. It was listed as a protected tree by the Danish Society for Nature Conservation in 1996.

The holly can be seen in the winter season with a million red berries and is evergreen throughout the year.

 

Today, there are terraces around and next to the beautiful tree.
