The home Birkely
Now, cross Rådhusgade and continue on that part of the ramparts where the home ‘Birkely’ is located on the left. The name ‘Hage’ belongs to one of Steges most important families. It can be traced back to the 17th century and has in many ways influenced the town. As such, the home ‘Birkely’ was built in 1871 by A. and V. Hage as an orphanage. In 1924 it was taken over by Stege municipality and served as a nursing home. In 2001 it was renamed ‘Oasen’ (i.e the Oasis’) and is currently functioning as a place for the mentally ill.
Continue along the ramparts until you reach Langgade and make a little detour to the left at the large yellow house.
