The old part of town
In 1611 there were 26 houses in Dragør, in 1677 another 27 and around 1700 the town consisted of 135 families. The building custom in the city can be divided into three periods - the three periods of prosperity - 1770, 1830 and 1890.
Major fires in 1842 and 1852, when a total of 36 houses were burned, provided extensive urban renewal. 13 'skipper houses' stand out by their beautiful proportions: Several are listed by builder J. H. Blichmann.
The painters Eckersberg and Julius Exner visited Dragør several times and found motifs for a number of pictures here.
