What to see & do
Dybbøl Mølle – The Dybbøl Mølle is a tower mill with a gallery in which the mill stands plastered in a foundation wall. It is a traditional windmill in Europe, although what we see today is a rebuilt version of the old mill destroyed during the battle of Dybbøl. Since 1864, the mill was made into a national symbol.
Sonderborg Castle – The Sonderborg Castle is one of the few destinations within the city of Sonderborg. It is located on the island of Als in South Jutland, in the middle of the town in a park setting overlooking the Als Fjord. It houses a museum focusing on the history and culture of the area.
Queen Dorothea's Chapel (within the Sonderborg Castle) – Built between 1568 and 1570, the Queen Dorothea's Chapel is a unique feature of the Sonderborg Castle built by Hercules von Oberberg for Queen Mother Dorothea. It reflects the changing times in Denmark after the reformation. The chapel is almost untouched considering it is one of Europe's oldest and best-preserved Lutheran royal chapels. Many of the items in the chapel were created in Antwerp at painter Frans Floris' workshop. The chapel's organ meanwhile, is attributed to organ builder Hermann Raphaelis, and is believed to have been built in 1570, while the paintwork for the organ case dates mainly from 1626. Under the west gallery of the chapel, there is a choir loft over which there was originally a royal chair, however, it disappeared when the organ was built in its present position in 1626.
