Add To Plan

Enjoy a great opportunity to learn about the everyday life of Danes in the 18th and 19th centuries, in one of the largest and oldest open-air museums in the world.

A great outdoor experience awaits kids and adults alike, just a half-hour from Copenhagen. The Open-Air Museum was founded in 1897 and today spans 86 acres of land and features more than 50 farms, mills and houses dating from 1650 to 1950. Virtually every region in Denmark and the Faroe Islands, as well as the former Danish provinces of southern Sweden and northern Germany, are represented at the Open-Air Museum, allowing you to travel the length and breadth of historic Denmark in a single afternoon.

The buildings here are furnished and fitted with household effects to illustrate everyday life and daily chores in the old farmsteads and rural cottages, especially in the 18th and 19th centuries. The houses have been laid out according to region, and the gardens and landscapes bear testimony of distinctive features in the different parts of Denmark, which are surprisingly diverse for such a small country. Museum staff and volunteers populate the houses and museum grounds, dress in period costume and are seen engaging in typical household and agricultural chores. Visitors are welcome to watch or take part. Wander freely in and out of the houses, watch demonstrations and speak with the docents. Throughout the summer, theater, music and dance performances, craftsmanship workshops and various activities ensure that there is always something interesting going on. Many household animals roam the grounds freely, much as they did in the past, and are tame enough to pet.

After a visit of approximately 2-hours, you'll rejoin your coach and transfer back to the cruise ship pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of walking that includes both cobblestone and natural surfaces. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking or hiking shoes are recommended. This tour will operate in all weather conditions so participants should take appropriate weather gear with them. Interacting with any animals is at your own risk.
