In interesting trip just under an hours drive from where I was staying. The buildings were in immaculate condition (hardly surprising as it was latterly an Army Camp) with a few containing displays about it's part in the war.

Took a short visit to this internment camp which is very close to the German border. Many museums (some free, others not). Learned a lot about the Danes role and imprisonment during WWII. Nice place to visit if you are in the area.
