Early one morning in spring 1940, Danish soldiers receive orders to obstruct the invading German army and impede its progress through Denmark. The Danish soldiers’ stand and subsequent skirmishes took a dramatic turn later that day and the Germans suffered appreciable losses.

On the first day of the German occupation of Denmark, 9 April 1940, the town of Haderslev was the scene of brisk encounters. Learn about the historical events that day, personal anecdotes and funny stories.

A 90-minute guided tour DKK 850 (max. 25 people)
