Dybøl Mill and the Dybøl 1864 battlegrounds still tells the story of the huge battle between Danish and Prussian/German forces that took place in 1864. During this battle the Danish fortifications near the old windmill played an essential part. Denmark lost this battle - and lost a lot of land to Germany. Some of this land was given back to Denmark after World War I - after a referendum in this area.
