After the city tour comes to its end, you will continue your acquaintance with Denmark.

City-museum Den Gamle By (The Old City), which represents a small town full of old-time edifices, is regarded as one of the most extraordinary places. Those buildings were brought to Aarhus from all corners of Denmark. On the streets of that town, you will have a chance to see “local inhabitants,” dressed in vintage clothes – they are the museum’s workers, who welcome the guests every day.
