The Funen Village
If you want to experience what it was like to live in the Danish countryside back in the 1800s, then you should definitely visit The Funen Village (Den Fynske Landsby). This is a piece of living history where you’ll get to discover what it meant to be a Danish common folk back when Hans Christian Andersen was still writing fairy tales, which have now become literary classics.
Citizens who value the traditional ways of living in the rural community of the Danish 1800s volunteer to take care of the various tasks. There are farmers, peasant girls, smiths, workers, beekeepers and much more – everyone is in character with period clothing and the like! It really is a remarkable sight and all of the sensory impressions around you will surely take you back in time. There are many activities for all ages and countless stories to be heard.
