Den Gamle By

Den Gamle By or The Old Town was founded in 1909 as the world's first open-air museum of urban history and culture. You will find it in Vijborgvej, adjacent to the Aarhus Botanical Garden.

Seventy-five historical houses from all over Denmark shape the contours of a Danish town as it might have looked in Hans Christian Andersen's days, with streets, shops, yards, homes and workshops.

Together with more than 3 million visitors over the course of the last 10 years, you can meet the people and characters of the past, experience life as it was in their livingrooms and kitchens; and smell the flowers right in their own gardens.

You will be able to join in some of the experiences through Den Gamle By's facebook page:
