located directly at the entrance of Sonderburg harbour it is a place worth to visit at any time of the year, inside and outside...just remember Shakespear's "Hamlet" that plays just there...

We visited this museum expecting a quick walk round and ended up spending two hours! We would have spent longer but wanted to go to The Dybbol over the water. The castle has a rich history and as well as good background to the events of 1864 the exhibition gives great insights into the time in southern Jutland leading up... More

A nice museum about the history of Sønderborg, and the battle that has been fought. With a lot of paintings and information about the history, also in English and German.

Old fortress castle with great view over the bay. Look for the falcon nest on the wall. Beautiful birds.

Given the circumstances and the thing that it was burnt twice (I think), then is still a nice and important building in the city. But it just doesn't give me the feeling of a castle. And for a small city, the museum inside is also ok. Nothing impressive but worth checking it, because you will anyway pass by for many... More
