Info on the region
Around Seebüll and away from the flow of tourists lie several interesting places and cultural attractions. For example:
– Just beyond the border lies TØNDER, a charming little town that had already received its town charter in 1243, with the SØNDERJYLAND MUSEUM and KUNSTMUSEET I TÖNDER; two museums of art and art history in a remarkable complex of buildings. From the museum it is only a few steps to the pedestrian zone with the “old apothecary” (Det Gamlet Apotek), chock-full with a giant selection of handicrafts. Please note our combi-ticket with the KUNSTMUSEET I TÖNDER
Adult: € 14
School children and students: € 3
– A few kilometres west lies MØGELTØNDER, where an avenue listed as a heritage site and lined with thatched houses runs past Castle SCHACKENBORG. The youngest Danish royal couple lived here until 2014. Today it houses a foundation.
– RUDBØL and ROSENKRANZ – this is where the walking trail to the Nolde Museum begins. In both border towns there are historic “Grenzkrüge” (border taprooms) one can stop off at.
– The GOTTESKOOG – border country that has been diked since the 16th century –will now be restored to its natural state. An information booth is located at the eastern edge of Gotteskoog lake.
– The Niebüll town hall, a historically protected building, contains the RICHARD HAIZMANN-MUSEUM/ MUSEUM FÜR MODERNE KUNST. Besides alternating exhibitions, here one can view paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints by the artist HAIZMANN (1895 – 1963), who lived in Niebüll until his death.
