The Old Town Museum

To travel back in time visit ‘Den Gamle By’ and experience first-hand what life was like in Denmark hundreds of years ago. The staff dressed in costumes can show you around this unique open-air museum of urban buildings collected and saved from demolition across the country.

Do & See

The relatively large influx of young people and students from across the Nordic countries creates a natural base for cultural activities, and there are countless cafes as well as clubs, cinemas, museums, parks and various other venues of entertainment. Each year, the town hosts several festivals and concerts including Aarhus International Jazz Festival in July and Aarhus Festuge in September—the biggest themed festival in Scandinavia.
