German Military & Refugee Cemetery - Oksbøl - Varde - Denmark - World War II - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
During World War II the Germans had some strong fortifications in the Blåvand and Esbjerg area. After the war a lot of German refugees stay in old German military camps in that area. As a result of this there is a rather large German military and refugee cemetery in Oksbøl.
