Frilandsmuseet | CruiseCopenhagen

Frilandsmuseet/The Open Air Museum

Only 30 minutes from central Copenhagen you can enter a different world: the countryside of old Denmark. Imagine yourself transported back in time, strolling along the gravel roads, historic gardens and visiting the fully-furnished homes of the people of the past.

In the summer holiday there are lots of family activities inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales.

Try the fairytale-trail, watch short plays, go on a self-guided tour about the author’s childhood and interact with the Princess on the Pea Pod, Clumsy Hans or the ugly duckling.
