  • We had 3.5 hours available, which stretched quite excellent to almost to see it all. Fortællerne and all other staff were very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and beretsomme. The kids (7, 9 and 14) were very interested in hearing all the stories of soldiers. It was seasoned with activities that fit also the smallest quite well. Pancake frying over an open fire and casting of projectiles in the blacksmith's shop. All hours and money's worth. Very recommendable.

  • Beautiful surroundings to the harsh stories among other things. about 1864. The mill is a fine experience. Maybe there should be a total price for the mill and the historic center. Overall, it seems a bit expensive.

  • When starting his visit will be recommended to see rather introductory film about the run-up to the war in 1864, as well as the day up to the battle at Dybbøl and the battle. This gives a good overview of the events. Then you go on to a smaller exhibition which gives an insight into a situation during the actual battle. After this exhibition comes out in a larger area outdoors that is supposed a redoubt and soldaterby, where there is a staff and man's barak, Canon lists, field vagtstue, etc. Out in this area is there during the day small stories from the staff. They tell vivid and you can feel that they are passionate about to convey. In addition, there is a larger exhibition on significant people before and during the war, and how through the ages have been living in the border area. I was missing a little more communication in writing out of the soldiers village and skansen. It can be recommended to go for a walk around the battle subsequently.
