Which city is called mini-city

Assens Miniby / Assens Miniby

The first project of the mini-city was the small cookhouse on the harbor pier, which was built as an exact replica based on original drawings.

The term mini-city originated a good 30 years ago.
Varde was the first Danish place to start such a project. Today there are several mini-city projects across Denmark.
It is said that without knowledge of the past, there is no future. This is where the mini-city projects have their value as mediators of history.

Over 60 houses have been built since the beginning of 1990.
The work is carried out in a mini mason's workshop.
Over the years, around a dozen retirees have created the houses here, which are true to life down to the last detail.

Construction engineering
Everything is handmade. Bricks, roof tiles, and ridge tiles are molded from red clay.
After a sufficient drying time, the bricks are fired in our own kiln at approx. 1000 degrees. Doors and windows consist of 2 mm plastic sheets that are placed on the machine.
The inner framework is made of a material called polycolar
After completion and drying, the houses are cleaned, some even painted.
Then doors and windows and possibly gates are used. Steps and iron railings must also be attached so that everything looks as real as possible.
