The "Old Town" in English, Den Gamle By is an open-air museum in the middle of Aarhus developed in 1909 as the first of its kind. Consisting of 75 houses recreated to exemplify traditional Danish ways of life, you may interact with the woodworkers, bakers, and other tradesmen of the 1800's, while businesses like the ironmonger and the bookstore represent the 1920's. We know, we know, not everyone is going to want to spend their time greeting actors dressed as 19th century workers or learning age old baking methods. For those that nay say, pay the 15 USD or so to enjoy highlights like the well-tended Mintmasters' Mansion, which is the only remaining building from the old Copenhagen quarter, and the often political displays of the Danish Poster Museum. One of Aarhus' most visited attractions, be sure to put Den Gamle By in your itinerary if a meticulous, large-scale reconstruction of Danish history sounds like a worthy companion to your treks through Mols Bjerge or Moesgaard forest.
