Den Gamle By

Take an adventurous time journey through 400 years of Danish history. Travel back in time in Den Gamle By (The Old Town), Denmark's most beloved open-air museum. In Den Gamle By you will experience what everyday life looked like in the days of H.C. Andersen up to the modern times of the 1920s, the beginning of our modern society in the 1960s and 70s and all the way up to 2014.

In Den Gamle By you become one with history, and you can both smell, taste and try your hand while you sniff around the streets and alleys, look into people's homes and strike a deal in one of the historic shops. All around you meet 'people of the time' who like to show off and tell stories. It's almost like being there yourself.

Top class Museum
In the summer Den Gamle By comes alive and you can meet the people living and working in the old huses. Watch them cook, chop firewood, do handicrafts, run to school or serve customers in the shops. Den Gamle By has been awarded three stars in the Michelin Travel Guide.
