  Torvet, Den Gamle By
by Roeffie

Den Gamle By

Den Gamle By was founded in 1914 by Peter Holm as the world´s first open-air museum of urban history and culture. The houses and interiors come from all over Denmark.

The houses are registered, dismantled, moved to Århus and rebuilt in Den Gamle By, which today stands as a reinterpretation of a typical Danish town from the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s.
