Dragør fishing village
On our distinctive Rescue Route tours, your Jewish guide will delve into the fascinating history of Danish Jewry, starting from when the first Jews were invited by King Christian 4th in 1622 up to the present day. They’ll also recount personal family narratives, providing insight into the miraculous rescue of over 7,000 Danish Jews during World War 2.

Courageous fishermen played a pivotal role in aiding more than 95% of the Jewish population in Denmark to safety in Sweden during an unprecedented act of heroism. Many Jewish Danes found refuge by escaping from Dragør village on small fishing boats, including the historic fishing boat Elisabeth K571. Explore this authentic fishing cutter that transported numerous Danish Jews to safety in Sweden during the stormy nights of October 1943.

With its old half-timbered houses, charming cafes, and restaurants, Dragør Town offers a picturesque setting. Just 8 miles from Copenhagen’s center, a visit to Dragør not only brings the past to life but also provides a unique glimpse into the daily life of a small Danish coastal village today.
