Den Gamle By


A short walk northwest of the centre is one of the city’s best-known attractions, Den Gamle by (“the old town”), an open-air museum of traditional Danish life, with seventy-odd half-timbered townhouses and actors in contemporary dress. A new town expansion is under construction (due for completion in 2014), which will feature shops and homes from 1900 to 1974 and attractions such as a poster museum. Close by are the pleasant botanical gardens.
