    Memorial stone

    The memorial stone is located north of the harbour in Dragør and was erected in 2003 in memory of the humanitarian effort made by fishermen and others from Dragør in October 1943, when the Germans started its action against the Danish Jews. It is said that more than 700 persons were saved by the Dragør fishermen and other helpers.

    The relief is made by artist Ole Bunton and the stone weights around 9 tons.

    Dragør Fort is one of five coastal forts constructed at the beginning of World War I (the others were Flakfortet, Kongelundsfortet, Mosede Fort and Taarbæk Fort). The fortification was built between 1910 and 1915 to protect the coast of Amager from enemy attack and invasion. The fortification is built on an artificial island about 200 metres from the coast line and you have a nice view of Dragør village and the Øresund Bridge from the ramparts.

    Dragør Fort has since 2002 been owned by a private company and there is a small hotel (and a restaurant) inside the old fortification today. Their webpage is only in Danish...

    Dragør Museum - at Dragør Harbour - is a museum about the area’s history with a particular attention to its seafaring history. Full of ship models, paintings, and weird things brought home by local sailors from around the World...

    The museum is housed in an old building from 1753, and before being converted into a museum, it had been used as a store house for salvaged goods, the harbour master’s office, and the town hall. The museum also owns a cutter, the Elisabeth K571, which was used to rescue about 70 Danish Jews to Sweden during World War II.

    Drag��r Old Village

    Dragør Old Village is a very beautiful place with cosy, picturesque alleys and cobblestone streets built in the traditional Danish style. The houses are yellow painted with red roofs and many of these buildings are built between the end of the 18th century and 1850. 25% of the houses are preserved, and they are all covered by a local preservations plan which secures that the village will keep its special character. Around the alleys you’ll also see many roses and hollyhocks.

    Buy an ice cream and take a stroll through old Dragør...

    Öresund Bridge dip

    by Sjalen Written Oct 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bridge can be seen from several places on both sides of the strait, but along the pier in Dragoer it is fun as you can see where the bridge becomes a tunnel. All of a sudden, cars and lorries just disappear into the sea! :))) You need a good camera zoom if you want to do more than just look. I didn't have a zoom...
