The main attraction of Danfoss Universe is the blue cube that Danfoss purchased from Iceland after the Expo 2000 in Hannover. The 20 meter tall building design symbolizes several natural elements, spanning from geysers to volcanoes and thunderstorms. In the middle of this unique atmosphere in the blue cube is a geyser, capable of shooting an 18 meter tall beam of water.

Schleswig goes back as far as 1920, when Schleswig was divided and the northern half voted for Denmark, and therefore had a special place in the Danish consciousness and hearts. Gottorp Castle was built in around 1700 in the inner cove of the Schlei. Today Gottorp Castle serves as a museum with large collections from all around Schleswig. The castle’s chapel is still used for worship by the Danish church. In the museum’s side wing the famous Nydam boat is located. After a visit of the castle it is possible to visit the center of Schleswig and the beautiful cathedral.

Hedeby was Denmark's oldest town. In the Viking Age (ca. 800-ca. 1050) it was the largest town with population of several thousand inhabitants. The southern border of the Danish kingdom ran through Eider, not far south of Hedeby. In the Viking Museum Hedeby tells the story of the old city through different texts and artifacts, such as models of houses, ships and costumes.
