The Old Town (Den Gamle By)

The Old Town - Aarhus, Denmark

Perhaps my favorite museum visit, ever, was to Den Gamle By in Aarhus on Jutland. Besides the fact that I love old buildings, I had just the right conditions for visiting this place. I arrived almost an hour before they opened, and the guy at the gate let me in so I got to walk around and imagine myself traveling back in time several hundred years without tourists ruining the illusion. By the time I left a couple hours later, The Old Town was filling up and the ambiance had totally changed.

I believe today’s photo is the inner garden surrounded by “The Mayor’s House” (aka “The Old Mayor’s Residence” or “The Merchant’s House”). This building dates back to the 16th Century and was moved to its current location in 1914 as the first building in Den Gamle By.
