Part I of II

It was hot. It was sunny. The sky was almost completely cloud-free. The trees are full of rich green, healthy leaves and some mixed with beautiful flowers.
There's no way I could keep myself locked inside.
I decided to take a trip to one of the largest and oldest open air museums in the world. It's located in the old town of Lyngby, approx. 20 km north of Copenhagen.

Eliza and I had loads of fun, and have decided now to share our adventure with the great folks here at S&B. :)

Hope you enjoy!

Here's a quick summary of the Open Air Museum:

The Open Air Museum north of Copenhagen is one of the largest and oldest in the world. Spread across 86 acres of land today the museum houses more than 50 farms, mills and houses from the period 1650-1950. Virtually every region in Denmark and the Faeroe Islands as well as the former Danish provinces of southern Sweden and northern Germany is represented so at the Open Air Museum you can travel the length and breadth of Denmark in a single afternoon - just a stone's throw from Copenhagen centre.

Looks like a good idea :)

Now to see the inside of one of the houses.

I guess people back in the 1600s weren't very tall:

Look at their beds (to the right):

The outside of that house:

Part II will come soon...


Cheers! :cheers2:

Thank you! Nice Pics. Like these houses.
But thats surely not what Denmark is about. All old houses in northern europe look likes these. ;)
Beutiful photos, it surprised me that some of the houses looked like typical Ukrainian country home.
