Not too far away in History Marstal was a power center for Danish and European commercial freight shipping. Schooners and later small powered freighters carried cargo all over the world. Bringing things to modelsize often helps understanding, and the fact that this shipping adventure originates from a mere 4000 population town certainly makes the story almost model size and very...

A visit at Marstal Søfartsmuseum is a must, when you come to Ærø. It will give you a view into the life on the Sea for the last 500 Years. And of course you also need to read the chronicle about the birth of the modern Denmark, a novel by Carsten Jensen, which also give life to Marstal.

The artwork and ship models are quite beautiful in this maritime museum ("Museum of Seafaring"). We also enjoyed the full-scale models of rooms on ships (including a bridge and sleeping quarters). The problem is that there are almost no English translations of the Danish explanations throughout the museum. Of course, that's not an issue if you read Danish. But I... More

Great museum. Only problem is you need hours to get through it all. Or do as we did: Go back twice. Great display of model ships, old engines, and a thorough documentation of the naval history of Ærø and Marstal

Marstal Maritime Museum is a wonderful place to visit if you like old sailing ships, maritime history and maritime paintings. Marstal.....and the harbor, was, and still is, a center for maritime activity. You can easily spend half a day at the museum. Volunteers are available to answer any questions you may have. A visit to the museum is a "must"... More
