Dive into history
The shelter is in the backyard behind Museum Polakkasernen, which is a museum where you can learn about the east European seasonal sugar beet workers who came to Denmark during the early industrial times. The workers were brought here by the nearby estate, Lungholm Gods, where you can host parties or feel like the king of the world in while sleeping in the luxurious castle. The village Tågerup is also known for its exquisite church, which has beautiful frescos from the 1400s.

This area offers many opportunities for exciting adventures in nature, particularly if you enjoy hiking or animal observations.
