Den Gamle By

2 Viborgvej
Aarhus , Denmark

Cars are nowhere to be found in Den Gamle By (The Old Town). This Aarhus tourist attraction is actually an open-air museum comprised of 75 historic buildings in a pedestrian-only village, which has a post office, school, theatre, grocery, and a customs house. Staff members are dressed in traditional attire and can be seen in and around the village. Most of the structures—which were built between 1550 and the latter part of the 19th century—originated in various parts of Denmark and were later moved to Aarhus during the 20th century. The Old Town opened in 1914 and now welcomes 3.5 million visitors each year.
