Bogense is a town in central Denmark, located on Funen in Nordfyn municipality, Region of Southern Denmark. The town has a population of 3,721 (1 January 2014). With its half-timbered houses, narrow streets and large marina, it is a popular tourist spot in the summer. The city is connected to Odense and Middelfart via buses operated by Fynbus.The city was the seat of Bogense Municipality until the 2007 Municipal Reform, when Bogense merged into the new Nordfyn Municipality. Though it is not the largest city, Bogense became the seat of the new municipality.HistoryBogense was first mentioned in 1288, when king Erik Menved made it into a borough ("købstad" in Danish). The town was probably established as a trading post at the end of the 12th century. Its layout with a central main street and a number of cross streets is typical of medieval development. The town is thought to have grown up as a result of the ferry which provided a connection to Klakring in Jutland in the Middle Ages. It was probably granted privileges as a market town with a municipal charter during the second half of the 13th century.
