    FLUGT - Refugee Museum of Denmark

    4.32 km

    FLUGT - the Refugee Museum of Denmark will put big numbers and statistics into perspective by conveying the stories of individual people. You will experience a journey across time and place, meeting people who have had to say goodbye to everything they know and love. You will follow them during their escape and their arrival in Denmark and the dream of a new future.

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

    Oksbøllejren – Denmark’s largest refugee camp

    At the end of World War II, more than 250,000 German civilians arrived in occupied Denmark after a dramatic, violent escape. In the last few months of the war, the Red Army’s attack on Nazi Germany greatly affected civilians and displaced millions of Germans from their homes. Denmark’s largest refugee camp, Oksbøllejren, was built in 1945 and housed 35,000 refugees at its peak. The museum is now located in this area. It is where you will experience – both inside the museum and out in the plantation – what life in Oksbøllejren was like.

    Constant refugees

    Refugee flows are not just a historical phenomenon. Recent years have seen the largest refugee flows ever. War and persecution drive people to escape for survival, safety and a new home. This is a ubiquitous phenomenon, so you will not just meet the refugees of the past at FLUGT. In the exhibition Constant Refugees, 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, at present, Ukraine.

    Audio tour of the former refugee camp

    Outside the museum, you can wander camp's original paths and roads with an audio guide. On the plantation, you will experience life in the camp as it was in 1946. Among other things, you will be invited to Theatre Oxbøl to meet some of the camp 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 each year by up to 20,000 descendants.

    In Marbæk Plantage there are field differences from the older Iron Age. And in the middle of the plantation, east of the road between Sjelborg and Myrthue, an area has been cleared where these field boundaries can be seen. Remains of houses from the Iron Age are also found at Myrthue and on the outskirts of Sjelborg plantation. In Myrthue, three plots of house have been preserved, where the houses' fireplaces and paved stables can still be seen. Between the houses there are paved paths.

    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.

    Gold of the West Coast

    Contemplate the treasure trove which holds one of the finest amber collections in Europe. Also meet the amber hunter who might reveal how you can find amber yourself. Discover the many properties of amber in the amber forest and get to know the difference between amber and just yellow rocks.

    Army of Concrete

    World War II was not just about concrete and cannons but first and foremost a world tragedy that struck ordinary people – also on the Danish west coast. Meet some of these people and learn of their fates in the exhibition, which is built like a bunker landscape.

    The Tirpitz Bunker

    The old bunker lies as a testimony to the widespread consequences of World War II. Like a huge concrete block full of secrets, it calls for you to explore in the narrow aisles. Here too, a wealth of great stories lies hidden.

    Blåvandshuk Lighthouse

    16.94 km

    Blåvandshuk Fyr is probably the most eyecatching building in Blaavand with its appr. 40 mtr. tall light house, which with its own rough charm marks The Most Western Landmark of Denmark. Around the light house you find the hardly flattering concrete bunkers from world war two. The light house was built in the year 1900 as a replacement for the old angle light from 1888.

    Due to its location on a high dune, the light source is placed 55 meters. above sea level. The light source it self is fairly modest and is supplied by an electrical light lamp of 1000 watts and 220 volts. The very intense light beam, which is visible from sea at a distance of about 50 to 60 kilometers is produced by a rotating lens, which by use the mean of various shields, generates the characteristics of the light, 3 blinks each 20 secs.

    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.
