The Sea War Museum Jutland in Thyborøn tells the story of the greatest sea battle in history - the Jutland Battle - which took place off the west coast of Jutland in 1916. 100,000 men on German and British ships fought for dominion at sea. The cannon order was so violent that it could be heard ashore. 8,645 sailors lost their lives. Twenty-four ships ended up on the seabed. In the dunes facing the sea is a memorial park for the Jutland Battle. "War is a tragedy and should not be glorified, but the story must be told and the victims should be remembered." is the museum's motto. We have no enemies. It is the war itself, which, is the enemy.
