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.
