Art Towers

Denmark’s longest art exhibition - a totally unique way of enjoying works of art.

In Denmark’s Longest Art Exhibition spread out on 12 different towers, you can explore the many facets of art and see how different artists meet the challenge, when the “gallery” measures 1,5m x 1,5m and 8 m to the ceiling!
No matter which season you come, you can visit the towers, since they are open all year round. We would actually encourage you to visit them in different seasons, because there is a difference between the experience on a summer day or a day in fall or the winter.

Cultural legacy and cooperation
Due to a brilliant idea from a local artist (Hans Kjær) and an amazing cooperation between artists and Langeland’s Power Supply, for the tenth year in a row, it is possible to visit the old transformer towers. Every year in the beginning of May, new exhibitions arrive in 4 of the twelve towers. In connection with the replacements, the towers go through necessary maintenance so the different types of transformer towers are also kept for posterity and as a part of Langeland’s cultural legacy.
