    FLUGT - Refugee Museum of Denmark

    4.32 km

    FLUGT makes the big numbers and statistics relevant and tells the story of each individual. You will embark on a journey across time and place, meeting people who have had to say goodbye to everything they knew and loved. You'll follow them as they flee, through their arrival in Denmark and on to the dream of a new future.

    World-renowned BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group has designed FLUGT based on the history of the area. In the refugee camp's hospital, which originally consisted of 40 small hospital and operating theatres, the architects have created a brand new museum with eight large exhibition rooms. A beautiful, curved extension ties the original wings together into one whole.

    Oksbøl Camp - the largest refugee camp in Danish history

    At the end of World War II, more than 250,000 German civilians arrived in occupied Denmark after a dramatic and violent escape. In the final months of the war, the Red Army's assault on Nazi Germany took a heavy toll on the civilian population, displacing millions of Germans from their homes. The largest refugee camp in Danish history, Oksbøl Camp, was built in 1945 and housed 35,000 refugees at its largest. It is in this area that the museum is now located. And it is here, both inside the museum and out in the plantation, that you will experience what life was like in the Oksbøl camp.

    Refugees at all times

    Refugee flows are not just a historical phenomenon. These years, the world is experiencing the largest refugee flows ever. War and persecution are driving people to flee for survival, safety and new homes. It is a topic that is omnipresent, which is why it is not only refugees of the past that you will meet in FLUGT. In the exhibition REFUGEES OF ALL TIMES, you will meet the refugees who have come to Denmark in recent times from Russia, Germany, Hungary, Vietnam, Chile, Lebanon, Iran, Bosnia, Syria, Afghanistan and most recently Ukraine.

    Audio walk in the former refugee camp

    Outside the museum, you can hike along the camp's original paths and roads with a guide in your ears. In the plantation, you will experience life in the camp as it was in 1946. Among other things, you will be welcomed inside Teather Oxbøl and meet some of the camp's residents. Afterwards, you can continue your walk to the Refugee Cemetery next to the museum, where up to 1800 Germans are buried. The cemetery is visited by up to 20,000 descendants every year.

    Minibyen in Varde

    9.94 km

    Varde Miniby is a miniature version of Varde town as it looked around the year 1860. The town is built in the size ratio 1:10, and every single building is listed as a faithful copy of the original. Despite the fact that Varde is an old town, it is a minimal part of the original buildings that still stand today, as the Vardens have historically had bad experiences with fire. In the city, there are more than 300 buildings in the small putt version, all built by the so-called mini-masons. These mini-masons are made up of 12 retired, skilled and dexterous men who meet year-round to build the small, millimeter-accurate replicas of the old buildings. The buildings are compiled with home-cast roofs and bricks, window sections, trusses and downspouts.

    Blåvandshuk Lighthouse

    16.94 km

    Blåvandshuk Lighthouse is probably the most eye-catching building in Blåvand with its 39 metre high lighthouse, which with its own rugged charm marks Denmark's westernmost point, Blåvands Huk. From the top, there is a marvellous view of Horns Rev and the world's largest offshore wind farm.

    The lighthouse was built in 1900 to replace the old angle lighthouse from 1888. Thanks to its location on a high dune, the height of the light source above sea level is 55 metres. The light source itself is quite modest, consisting of a 1000 watt 220 volt electric light bulb. The amazingly bright beam of light, which can be seen 50-60 kilometres out to sea, is produced by a rotating lens device that also uses shielding to produce the beacon character, 3 flashes every 20 seconds.

    Wadden Sea National Park

    41.68 km

    The Wadden Sea stretches across 500 km and three countries. UNESCO has recently designated the Danish part of the Wadden Sea as World Heritage Destination. The German/Dutch part was already declared a World Heritage Destination in 2009.

    The tides makes a huge impression when twice a day 1,000,000,000 m3 of water is moved back and forth through the depths. The Wadden Sea is the flawless quiet water, and simultaneously the turbulent ocean on the outside of the dike. The Wadden Sea is full of life - in the air, in the low water, above and below the marshes surface. No other place in Denmark is it possible to encounter so many migrating birds, spring as well as autumn - a total of 10-12 million. During hatching season, do mind your feet, as the bird nests occur in the strangest of places. The Island Mandø situated southwest of Ribe will at this time of year give some remarkable insights into the wild life.

    The warm and low waters of the Wadden sea is at the same time the natural breeding area for many of our most important fish species, and here our summer visitors - the mullet - congregates in great numbers. The Wadden Sea is today the home of the largest population of the common seal Denmark.
