Come and hear about one of the greatest strandings on Holmsland Klit, when the story of the bark “Elisabeth Rickmers” is told in a mini-exhibition at Abeline’s Farm.

In 1894 the huge German bark “Elisabeth Rickmers” stranded on the part of the coast that belonged to Abeline’s Farm.
It therefore fell to Abeline’s father-in-law Chresten to house the seamen and it was also him who split the ship apart and sold the parts at the annual stranding auction.
He earned so much money from this that he could turn the farm over to his son Laurids and daughter-in-law Abeline the same year.

The story of the stranding in 1894 is told through pictures and a listening station.
