  • It's a private museum run by the Danish Minority Association in Schleswig-Holsten, the lack of support by the German authorities is remarkable. The museum is a comprehensive coverage of the Danevirke defensive line whch went across the entire width of the Jutland pensinsula here at its narrowest place and its historical importance.
