Cannon in action Ebeltoft

The Danish Navy frigate Jylland was built in 1860. As a wooden ship with front-loading cannon, her design was already outdated at that time. She still saw action in 1864, in the war against Germany.

Since 1994, she sits in a dry dock in the small town Ebeltoft and serves as a museum.

Every day at 12.00, one of the 24lbs. cannon is fired.

Jylland is carrying 44 cannon
