The open-air museum Den Gamle By, which translates to The Old Town in English, is an open-air museum that takes you on a journey back into the past. This unique sight in the Danish town of Aarhus should not be missed. Each year about 500 thousand people visit the museum. It consists of buildings from the 16th century and people are encouraged to "join in". Visitors can see how people worked, prepared food, or chopped firewood. Guests can even talk to the people or perhaps try to bring some water from a well or bring garbage to the dung heap. After work, as it is well known, the pleasure comes up. In the cellar, one can enjoy beer and tasty pretzels or try out the air racks and carousel on the plaza.
