Danmarks Museum for Lystsejlads
Explore the history of yachting.
In the large hall at the harbor in Svendborg, you have the opportunity to experience over 130 vessels - ranging from small dinghies and classic kayaks to historical boats such as the Starboat Leise, which sailed with the Olympic flame, or Denmark's smallest spidsgatter "Bette Ole" at just 4 meters.
Additionally, there are plenty of exciting artifacts. Among them, Paul Elvstrøm's stopwatch, from when he won his first Olympics, and the world's first composite rigging, which is actually a Danish invention.
In the summer of 2024, there will be an exhibition about the history of Danish Olympic sailing. The Olympic exhibition opens in the spring and will offer a wealth of knowledge, exciting boats, and stories from Danish Olympic sailors' Olympic history.
