Langelands Fort

Local name: Langelandsfort

The fort was built in 1953 and was used until 1993. It now houses a museum dedicated to the Cold War. Permanent exhibitions present various aspects of the history of Denmark and Europe during the Cold War period, including stories of Danish spies operating in in Poland.
