During the Second World War many Jews fled to Sweden hidden in fisher boats – one of which, the cutter K571 Elisabeth of Dragoer, now being a museum ship and is seen in the harbour. Three museums portray Dragoer: Dragoer Museum with the Maritime history and beautiful interiors, the Pilot Museum in the oldest pilot station in Denmark at the harbour, and the maritime painter Christian Mølsted’s Museum. The military strategic location of Dragoer by the always busy Baltic Sea has implied that Dragoer has two forts – Dragoer Fort close by the town and Kongelundsfortet far south by Kongelunden. Both forts are open to the public.” ( Source: Extracts from tourist brochure in Dragoer”)
