Open-Air Museum, {CATEGORY}

Your schedule may allow you to visit only Copenhagen with no time for the Danish countryside. But there is a way out of that - call it a look at "Denmark in a Nutshell". At one of the largest and oldest (1897) open-air museums in the world, you can wander into a time capsule of long ago - a sort of Danish version of the Scottish Brigadoon - and return to a town that still lives on in the 19th century, when Hans Christian Andersen was writing all those fairy tales. This reconstructed village in Lyngby, on the fringe of Copenhagen, recaptures Denmark's one-time rural character. The "museum" is nearly 36 hectares (89 acres), a 3km (1 3/4-mile) walk around the compound, and includes more than 50 re-created buildings - farmsteads, windmills, and fishermen's cottages. Exhibits include a half-timbered 18th-century farmstead from one of the tiny windswept Danish islands, a primitive longhouse from the remote Faroe Islands, thatched fishermen's huts from Jutland, tower windmills, and a potter's workshop from the mid-19th century. Folk dancers in native costume perform, and there are demonstrations of lace making and loom weaving. Adjacent to the open-air museum stands Brede Værk, an intact industrial plant that gives a complete picture of a former factory community which closed in 1956. The Nationalmuseet moved to preserve it as a reminder of Denmark's past. Still intact are the cottages of the working-class families, even the houses of the foremen. Their former eating house has been turned into a restaurant today, and there are even an orphanage and a nursery garden. The old factory buildings house exhibitions illustrating "The Cradle of Industry". Our delight here is touring Brede House, a neoclassical manor dating from 1795. The owner of the mill, Peter van Hemert, lived here with his family before he went bankrupt in 1805. He pictured himself a fanciful decorator, decking his halls like he was Louis XVI. The park is about 14km (8 2/3 miles) from the Central Railway Station. There's an old-style restaurant at the entryway to the museum.
