In cooperation with Danish institutions, the museum shipyard presents old trades and activities of the maritime working world. Here sailing ships of the 18th and 19th century, that were important for the region, are rebuilt in traditional timber construction. In this way the everyday labour of that period is displayed to the public. The ships are put into operation for discrete cultural tourism. These practical projects serve as a youth and student exchange across the borders as well as a cultural programme on both sides of the Flensburger Förde (Flensburg Bay).
