The Froslev Camp Museum

One of Europe's best preserved prisoner of war camps. The Froslev Camp was built as a German internment camp in 1944 during the German occupation of Denmark and today is one of Europe's best preserved German prisoner of war camps. Several thousand Danes were imprisoned at the camp by the German security police. Even though the Froslev Camp was built to avoid the deportation of Danes to concentration camps in Germany, around 1600 Froslev prisoners were sent on, contrary to all agreements, to the horrors of the German concentration camps. In the days of liberation, there was an urgent need for internment options for the thousands of Danish citizens who the Resistance suspected of activities detrimental to the state. The Froslev Camp's many barracks could be used for this purpose. The Froslev Camp was renamed the Faarhus Camp and the camp was reused for so-called quislings or traitors. The museum contains an exhibition about the Faarhus Camp, which opened in March 2013. The Museum is closed in December and January.

We took a trip here, on the same day as visiting the Laboe Naval Memorial. I would recommend the trip over here if you have a car - it is about an hour drive from near Kiel, Germany. This concentration camp was mainly for Danish citizens who didn't agree with the Nazis. It was interesting to see the buildings in much the same state as in the 1940's. Also some personal items (like some homemade playing cards from cut up pieces of brown paper). It is a self guided tour. Most of the information plaques are in English (and I think German, and Danish).

Det Maritime Kalvo

Reviewed By Vestpucci - Aabenraa, Denmark

Øen, der er forbundet med fastlandet ved hjælp af en dæmning, er ikke særlig stor, og man kan fint komme rundt på et stisystem, der også går tværs over øen og forbi en stenpark bestående af vandresten fra istiden. Når man kører over til øen kan man enten parkere på den lille lystbådshavns eller kroens parkeringsplads. I det område lå der i midten af 1800-talletet skibsværft, der også forklarer de fine gamle boliger, der stadigvæk bliver beboet af øens i alt 8 indbyggere.

Rise Kirke

Reviewed By udelivogrejser - Rødekro, Danmark

Jeg ville til Rise Kirke for at lægge en bårebuket, inden bisættelsen. Jeg tog den beslutning, at,gå ind i kirken, for at sige det sidste farvel til afdøde. Det var en god fornemmelse, at komme ind i den lille landsby kirke. Her var fredfyldt. Kirketjeneren gjorde stor indtryk på mig, han forlod kirken ,og lod mig være alene.

Klovtoft Kurklinik & Barfodspark

Reviewed By DoctorMuth - Copenhagen, Denmark

The concept is pretty simple; you walk barefoot around a little park, where the landscape and some signs help you explore and sense through your feet. Small tubs of mud, a sensory path where you follow a line with closed eyes, a track through the plantation with oblong boxes containing gravel, pinecones, beach sand, logs etc. And at the end, a shallow pool to wade around in while digesting all the pedal input of your walk.
As I visited on a quiet day by myself, the experience was quite meditative. But there are many nooks and paths to discover and cute and quirky decorations and some picnic area, and I could easily imagine a more adventurous and boisterous experience, if I had come with friends and children.

Vandkunst

Reviewed By 748Rita - Aarhus, Denmark

Vandkunsten er en skulptur, som er meget elsket af byen. Den har en hyggelig plasken fra de mange finurlige haner, og den giver charme til det lille torv, den står på. Konstrueret af et højt kobberrør, som er påsat af en masse haner og rør, hvorfra vandet plasker. I 1969 blev gågaden indviet, og da var vandkunsten en del af inventaret. På denne åbningsdag flød den ene hane med sodavand af fabrikatet Stolly.
