    The Royal Jylland is a beautifully restored three-master of the 19th century. The ship and the adjacent museum are very worthy of visit. Great contrasts between the crew and the Royal suites.

    When we were on holiday in Ebeltoft, we had the most beautiful view of the frigate Jutland as our grandson on 2 years called a pirate ship! Always a pleasure to watch!

    It is exciting to visit the frigate, which is an impressive ship. The ship tells an exciting story of Denmark's past.

    Have to admit that the ship is incredibly well preserved for its age, as well as the wear and tear it faced during the Slesvig Wars. The museum does a good job and informing its visitors what it was like of her sailors during the 1800's, as well as what she faced during the Slevig War of 1864 against the combined fleet of Prussia and Austria. A marvel of Danish ingenuity and a perfect example of what was Denmark's small, but fierce navy.

    An interesting museum ship, propelled by both sail and steam. Beautifully restored and well worth visiting

    if you are into classic warship and maritime history this will be right in your alley. You get to visit all decks and inspect the ship from beneath. There is also a large museum with a basement especially made for the kids. Visit the workshops to see how they are restoring the ship.

    Be there for the daily canon blasts - good show and the information given prior to this is good and entertaining. Treasure hunt for the kids is a good way to get around the entire area. The interactive setups doesn't work too well anymore though - kids liked them anyhow. One huge ship!

    The ship is very well preserved and the exhibition gives a good impression of life on board. There are also activities for the kids integrated in the exhibition. Cannons are fired and sails are set.
