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.

Here you can see many authentic things from world war 2, as it was a prison where germans put border police and others. Some was sent to seadth in Germany. Alså a U.N museum and museum for civil defence.
