From 1864 to 1920 the Danish area “Sønderjylland” was a part of Germany.
During the First World War the German Imperial Navy operated Zeppelin airships from Tønder city. The base was placed a few kilometers north of the city. On July 19, 1918 the Royal Navy carried out an air-raid on the base in Tønder. It was the first ever successful air raid launched from an aircraft carrier. The remains of the bombs used by the Royal Navy Sopwith Camels can be seen at the museum.
The Zeppelin- and Garrison Museum in Tønder opened in 1999. The museum is situated in the vicinity of the old base and among the exhibits are the original propellers from of the airships.
