We visited this place for the 2nd time. It is a good day out for family. Well, the tickets are a bit pricey, so, best to spend the whole day there or make the most out of it. At least spend 3 hours there!! It's like another town, the old town (as the name of the museum), with a lot... More

This place is very stunning! I love the architecture of this old town. It really gives me many knowledge about Aarhus in the past time. Anybody who visit Aarhus Denmark should visit this Old Town!

We visited today with our 8 and 10 y.o. children. We arrived late in the day and we were outnumbered by gray hairs. The park has a bunch of old buildings moved in from all around Denmark and it has a few really fun things for kids: a kitchen maid making food, household bugs exhibits (mites, spiders, roaches, moths), just...

Although they call it a museum, it has more of a theme park feel. It's a $20 ticket so if you go, get the most of your day and plan to have lunch there. After going into a house or two, I had my fill. But the grounds were very pretty and the 60s / 70s exhibit was my favorite.... More

Den Gamle By is a nice place to visit, but we found an hour to be adequate to see everything. Luckily there is a discount for arriving in the late afternoon.

I went here during my study at Aarhus University. It was just some steps away from my school and I never regret it. I had chance to the old grocery shop and saw how Aarhus looked like in the past. Well, love the old and new parts of Denmark and Aarhus itself

The old village was a great experience but not the community parking where there was no clear and easy information available that a parking decal was needed. We read the parking sign and believed that all was ok but we were fined 510 Dkr together with a lot of foreign cars just outside the old village. And if that was... More

If you love history you will love this attraction. The 'old town' has been built from relocating wonderful buildings to this site each with their own story to tell. See how people used to live and experience the sites and sounds. A wonderful day out as you wander around cobbled streets and enter different buildings. This is enhanced by taking... More

At first you may question the cost of this attraction but by the end of visiting many old houses with displays - some interactive, seen the old fairground and horse and carts it will prove to be value for money. Parking is in the streets around the attraction.
