The first written record of Egholm estate dates back to 1405, but the oldest building (today a magazine) dates from the 1200s. It was probably a keep built to the highest part. The current neo-classical main building was constructed in 1841 by Wolfgang von Haffner. Today Egholm is a museum.

What a splendid experience. The museum is sort of out of the way, but absolutely worth the trip. The historical importance of this museums WWII exhibition is definitely something that should not be forgotten. We used a little over 2 hours and enjoyed the audio guide (in Danish) which we received without extra expense. There is complimentary coffee at the end of the tour. We will definitely visit the museum again.

Very informative war museum with main emphasis on weapons and various effects of WW2. As an extra, there were weapons from the Middle Ages and the American Civil War . Very interesting lecture from the owner of the museum about the origin and especially the procurement of these weapons to the museum. Especially how they managed to have both a tank and a plane indoors.

A LOT of things collected from WW2, very neatly displayed and the audioguide gives you a very good tour of the collection. Highly recommended for a family trip, to pack the picnic basket and spend many hours there. A little sad they didn't have ice cream, as we were visiting on a very hot day.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
