The municipality of Dybbøl covers about 14.4 km². The municipality forms a triangle that borders the Flensburg Fjord in the south and the Alsensund in the east . Neighboring communities in the west are Sottrup Sogn (dt. Satrup ) and Nybøl Sogn (dt. Nübel ).

4455 people live in the municipality of Dybbøl, 2407 of them in the village itself (as of January 1, 2020). In 1925 there were 1,100 parishioners.

Osterdybbøl has grown together with Sønderborg over the Alsensund Bridge.


National memorial in Dybbøl

The Düppler church dates from the 12th century. Of the oldest building, only the wall between the choir and nave with late medieval frescoes remains. In 1586 and again in 1790 the church was extended. The church tower was added in 1857 instead of an older stack of bells . The oldest pieces of equipment are a crucifix from 1250, in which the crown of thorns has been replaced by a royal crown, and a granite stone adorned with lions and wild boars. Heinrich Ringerink's pulpit dates from 1605. During the Schleswig-Holstein uprising and the German-Danish War , soldiers were billeted in the church. The organ , which goes back to Johann Daniel Busch , was destroyed.

In addition to the touristic area of ​​the Düppeler Schanzen, there is also a particularly large stone to look at, namely the Düppeler Stein , which is located in the street Dybbølsten. The boulder is one of the largest stones in Denmark. The legend claims that the huge stone was hurled by a giant who wanted to hit a church near Flensburg with it , possibly the church of Broager . - Another legend assumes that the stone was hurled after her ex-lover by a giant lady who was able to do magic and who lived on the nearby island of Alsen . - One of the giants who were particularly happy to throw stones is said to have been von Handewitt . - In the well-known legend about the origin of the ox islands , which are not far from Dybbøl Sogn, a giant also plays an important role.
