  • Battle of Heligoland where Jutland shot the German admiral ship rig on fire, so the skamsomt may lurk deeper into German waters. The only bright spot in the national Liberals, hopeless war against the Prussians in 64, where we lost a third of Denmark's territory with its sumptuous ship to behold, wonderful experience to visit and hear the cannon brage. So forget for a moment the loss of 64. Read Herman Bang By Way of loss and Stucco on the consequences of the loss of the Danish spirit

  • The guided tour makes the experience many times better. There will be simultaneously told a good story. The ship is incredibly nice.

  • One of the best museums of its kind! The frigate has 4 visitable decks and each features scenes (complete with dolls, utensils and sounds) showcasing the life on the ship. The bottom part is still the original woodwork, and it is possible to walk under the ship!
  • Splendid site. Both for kids and adults with a sence for Danish history
  • 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
  • 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!
