The Museum Ship, Rylen

"Rylen" was originally built as a fishing boat in 1896. It was famous all over Denmark in the 1920's, when it was an "expedition ship" for the two artists, Johannes Larsen and Achton Friis, who sailed to 123 Danish islands. Their journeys resulted in the multi-volume work, The Isles of the Danes.

"Rylen" was bought and restored in 1992 by the Johannes Larsen Museum. When it isn't sailing around in Danish waters with artists on board, it can be seen in the "museum harbour" in Kerteminde, close to the "Rudolf Mathis" restaurant.

During the periods in which Rylen is not out sailing, you can find it at the dock behind the restaurant Rudolf Mathis  See map
