Go out into the open!
Sønderborg Municipality launches yearly a Danish calendar named “Ud i Naturen”, this is an overview of free tours from March to December with focus on various themes. The calendar is worked out in cooperation with volunteers from nature organizations, each with an area of interest of their own, this makes it possible to offer tours and expert knowledge within themes like fauna and flora, amphibians, birds and bats, just to name a few.

Meet marine life!
In the Danish summer holidays, you can explore and learn about the marine life at our coasts. The Blue Flag programme organizes events throughout the Sønderborg Municipality. Participate at activities like Day of the Crab, Insects and small Animals at the Beach, Shrimping and Taste the Beach and so on.

Touch basins and education riff.
From end of June to midst August, you can meet the nice promoters on marine life at the Blue Flag Centre, situated near Sønderborg Yacht harbour. In the opening hours you can drop by and lent some equipment like for an expedition of the coastal education riff “Triton” through underwater monocular. You can also “pad” a crab in one of the feel- and touch basins outdoors and experience the sea surrounding us by looking at the exhibitions tanks with fish, animals and plants or have a good chat with the promoters on marine biology and environment.
