Experience industrial

Cathrinesminde Brickworks is a well-preserved cultural environment and museum, designated as one of Denmark’s most important monuments to its industrial heritage.

The museum tells the story of the brick industry, which flourished around Flensburg Fjord for more than 200 years.

Explore the impressive red-roofed drying sheds, get right up close to the ring kiln and brickwork machinery, step back in time in the recreated workmen’s lodgings and learn about life in the small community around the brickworks.
