End of world attraction in Denmark WA

Latest update 1 March 2015

The Denmark Visitor Centre has lost its world’s largest barometer. Differences of opinion with the Board of Denmark Tourism Incorporated (DTI) and the management of the Denmark Visitor Centre about promoting and signposting the water barometer in the Barometer Tower in the Denmark Visitor Centre lay at the bottom of an ongoing conflict, which resulted in our departure after we asked for the barometer to be given back to us. The Barometer Tower was dismantled mid February 2011. The owner kept it in working order as a temporary set-up in a shed near his house.

Negotiations about a new housing for the barometer were successful. In due course the barometer will find a new permanent setting in a large lifestyle shopping centre in the Netherlands.
