I am almost certain that fairy tales come from Denmark. I mean, just look at it!
More precisely: they come from across the street from where we now live – Frilandsmuseet (the Outdoor Museum).
Frilandsmuseet is a magical place. It’s full of historical buildings – transported from all over Denmark to this very spot (did I mention this is across the street from where we now live?).
It’s full of farm animals.
And friendly hosts.
It sits on almost 100 acres.
Many of the houses here are furnished and accessible to visitors.
A number of villages can be explored.
There’s – of course – a cafe, which serves food, drinks and ice cream.
Frilandmuseet is located in Lyngby. From downtown Copenhagen, the easiest way to get here is on the 184 bus, which leaves from Norreport every 20 min. It is open between 10 am and 4 pm (5 pm during the summer vacation) from May 2 until October 22, and briefly during Christmas. Get here early and be prepared to spend several hours exploring. 100 acres is a lot of acres.
Entrance for adults is 65 krone (around $10), but if you live near this place, I highly recommend the yearly pass, which is 155 krone (around $25).
