Den Gamle By

Travel through time from Hans Christian Andersen's time in the 19th century to the 1920s and 1970s. Meet the townspeople and see their homes, shops and workshops.

Many visitors will remember Denmark and the welfare state and recognise the 1970s quarter with the commune and the nuclear family, the jazz bar and moped workshop, the TV shop, the minimarket and the Turkish migrants’ flat.

Admission is free for everyone under 18 years old.
