The Funen Village, Odense

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Discover the traditional life of Danish farmers from the time of Hans Christian Andersen at The Funen Village. This open-air museum was founded as a public works project in 1942 during the German occupation. Some 30 original buildings were moved to the museum from various sites in the Funen region. Walk down the village street along half-timbered houses, flower gardens, and fenced enclosures with livestock. With the living history you can experience the atmosphere of a day in the country in the 18th century. Smell beer brewing, watch a young girl helping the mistress in the kitchen, and hear the sound of the blacksmith's hammer.

  • Nice place to see how Denmark was during HC Andersens erase.
  • Great village but not so many explanations. I didn't really enjoy the visit but my husband does.
  • Nice place with old buildings and live animals.
  • Excellent! A very rich and authentic open air museum in Denmark. A source of ideas, how to use experiences from the past in everyday life and living.
  • Open-air museums presenting the Danish village, you can go back in time and see how life in the countryside a few hundred years ago. A lot of different staging, the ability to pass a horse-drawn carriage. I recommend both the romantic couple and family friendly.
