Overview

In the History Centre Dybbol Banke you step directly into the events of the dramatic war of 1864. You become be part of the drama and you will learn more about one of the most important battles in the Danish history. Experience history with all your senses: When you enter the territory, you will hear how the thunder of cannons is blended with the shouting and crying of injured soldiers. Go on your journey of exploration and find out, how a correct redoubt is built. Look into the barracks in the "soldiers' town" behind the front where the young and tired soldiers try to get some rest between the bloody battles. The war 1864 resulted in the disappearance of the multinational Danish nation state. Denmark developed into a national small state and got a part of Southern Jutland in form of Schleswig back. Prussia grew into the expanding German Empire which later sank and developed then into the Federal Republic Germany we know today. Therefore, the war in Dybbol is a central landmark in the European history. If you are ready to occupy the History Centre, then we are ready to offer you a very special adventure. Fascinating, entertaining, but also really serious.

Live actors, 1864 shops, museum with the personal story of both Danish and Preussian soldiers. Very cool place for kids, with the firing of riffles and canons. If you are interested in history, this is a must see.

Unfortunately, it was windy and rainy when we stopped at Dybbol National Park. We took a quick walk and took some nice pictures. It would be great on a warm, sunny day!

Few British people know much about the Schleswig-Holstein Question. In the famous Palmerston quotation he said that only three people had ever understood it: Prince Albert, who was dead; Bismarck; and Palmerston himself, and he had forgotten! This museum will fill in the gaps for...More

The museum was very informative, but a bit expensive. I am unsure if it is possible to view the movies about the battle in e.g. English. We saw them in Danish, but that is not a problem for a Swedish person. The best part was...More
