Route 1864Dansk | Deutsch | English

In 1864, fascinating and important events occurred at other places apart from at and around Dybbøl Mill.

Route 1864 leads to twelve places, such as Bøffelkobbel, Egernsund, Broager, Ballebro and Kegnæs – all with the Battlefield Centre Dybbøl Banke as their central focus.

These places and others like them all have a story to tell – an exciting, violent and moving historical narrative about the war of 1864.
