What to expect

Travel back in time during a visit to Den Gamle By or The Old Town in English. Join a local guide to explore the open-air museum and dive into Danish culture and history. You will pass 75 historic houses and apartments, shops, a pharmacy, school, post office, and jazz bar. This museum is one of the biggest attractions in Aarhus and cannot be missed while staying in the city.

Follow your guide through the museum and through three centuries. In the area of life before the 1900s, you can experience Denmark in the days of Hans Christian Andersen and the centuries before. Visit various houses from the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s and workshops of a carpenter, candlemaker, shoemaker, goldsmith, and more. Try some Danish pastries made with recipes from 1850. Travel towards 1920, a period Denmark became more modern and industrialization started to have an effect on life in Denmark. See vintage cars, electric wires, bookstores, and petrol pumps.

Finally, you will find yourself in 1974. Visit homes of various families each with their own style. Enjoy the lively vibes in the local jazz bar, taste a pastry at Café Bonnich and admire the old radio's and tv's at Poul's Radio and TV Shop. These 2 hours will give you an idea of how Danish towns and people changed throughout the centuries.
