Medal for participation

Medalje for delatgelse

Are you dedicated to history? Join the Battle of Als and help recreate episodes from the War of 1864. We want to spread the word about the War of 1864 and need your help.

The participants get an exciting and authentic experience, as time is turned backwards to 1864. We are building a soldier camp at Dybbøl Banke, with tent camp, hospital, sutler and much more. During the day, both Danish and Prussian soldiers participate in combat demonstrations that take place in the historic landscape at Dybbøl Banke.

War does not only affect soldiers. The camp also features a home front, where we tell stories of everyday life on the farm. As a civilian you can sell historically correct goods or perform a historical art or craft.
