  • The "Dem Gamle By" is basically an open-air museum, whose entrance fee of 40 euros for 2 adults including a guide book is absolutely justified for us. In the many houses from the past (16th century) and the modern era (from 2020 to 2014) authentic workshops and living spaces of the respective time are lovingly depicted. The people who meet you are either excellently recreated or costumed real people in a timely manner. The latter invite you to talk and are very friendly. Houses and rooms are equipped with panels in Danish as well as English and German. The content is scarce, but just if you want to see the city in 4 hours. For us, the houses from the 74s were a real highlight and are just fun. For children there is an arena with swings and a carousel. Dogs are allowed into the streets, understandably but not into the houses. We had our two dogs with us and took turns. Dog owners should bring drinking water, however, as bowls with water (unfortunately) are not offered.

  • Streeting savoring the traditional brick buildings shows us not only Danish good taste in preserving its heritage but also allows us to travel with the imagination to what life must have been like there in times past.
