In 1945-49 the woods outside Oksbøl was home to the largest refugee camp in Denmark. The camp housed 35,000 German refugees in the years following World War II. Remains of the refugee camp count the cemetery and a former hospital. A few ruins are scattered in the forest, but several buildings from the time of the camp today have found new uses.

Today, the buildings that housed the hospital in 1945 in Denmark’s largest camp for German refugees stand empty. But next year the ground will be broken for the new museum, FLUGT – Refugee Museum of Denmark.

FLUGT – Refugee Museum of Denmark

The plan is for the museum to open by summer of 2022. You will get to experience a brand new and modern museum designed by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group, which deals with fleeing and refugees. The exhibitions and stories are on the drawing board right now, but it is certain that the main subjects of FLUGT will be the German refugees who fled to Denmark in 1945 as well as the many refugees, from e.g. Vietnam, Bosnia and Syria that have come to this country in recent years.
