Mindeparken - the Memorial Park Connectet to the Palace
Guidet walk in the Memorial park commemorating Danes killed in the Great War 1914-18. The Memorial Park is situated next to the palace gardens by HM the Queen's summer residence, Marselisborg Palace.
Next to the Palace grounds is the Memorial Park and monument commemorating all Danes killed in the Great War 1914-18. Although Denmark stayed neutral in the First World War a large number of merchant sailors and some fishermen died at sea in addition to Danes who volunteered for the allied armies.
By far the majority of Danish war dead were from Southern Jutland, then part of Germany after Denmark lost the war of 1864 against Prussia and Austria. Some 4,100 people from this part of Denmark were killed from 1914-18. In 1920, as a result of Germany losing the Great War, Southern Jutland once again became part of Denmark.
