Open air museum - near Copenhagen

Here at this open air museum there are more than 100 buildings, where you can discover how farmers and smallholders lived and worked in different regions of Denmark in the 1700s, 1800s and 1900s. The museum also have some farmbuildings from Southern Sweden, Northern Germany and The Faroe Islands.

The buildings range from cottages to manor houses to windmills and watermills, from poor houses to the smithy, lace school and pottery workshop.

In the fields of the farms you'll see sheep, goats, cows and horses.

In the gardens you'll find flowers, fruittrees and old kind of herbs.

In the summer there are activities and the workers dress up in the traditional clotches.

The open air museum is a nice place to learn something about life in Denmark in the old days. It is also a nice place to enjoy a picnic if the weather is good.
