"See traditional costumes in the open-air-museums" Top 5 Page for this destination Denmark Local Custom Tip by globetrott

Denmark Local Customs: 58 reviews and 59 photos

See people in their traditional costumes and merchants, farmers, hat-makers etc. at work in the open-air-museums like "Den Gammle By" in Aarhus. These museums are open like small villages during the evening and night, and you may take a walk through them freely and without restrictions. During the day - according to the opening-hours - the doors of the museum will be locked again and you have to pay some entrance-fee, BUT you also get to see the people in their costumes, working and selling their merchandise in the old houses of the museum.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
