Sønderborg’s city harbour – hear about the developments from poor conditions to wellness

On a guided tour, you will experience the city’s harbour. You hear about the harbour’s development from poor conditions to the realization of Frank Gehry’s harbour project with, among other things, a wellness hotel.

The blood flowed into the harbour! Imagine long queues waiting to come across the Chr. X’s bridge, cargo ships, fishermen and a slaughterhouse from which the blood just flows into the Als Sund. Now you see a beautiful waterfront where people talk and enjoy themselves and new buildings are shinning in the sun. If you want to know how this could happen, participate on the city harbour tour.

On the tour, you will experience different buildings along the city’s harbour, where the guide tells about the harbour’s development from a harbour with industry and railway to a harbour area with restaurants, a beautiful waterfront and new buildings that house everything from a concert hall to a hotel with wellness. Using small anecdotes, we will make the tour alive.
