The world’s first open air museum (since 1914) has another distinction: it’s one of the only ones to recreate a town rather than a village. About 25 antique buildings, a number of pretty period gardens, and staff dressed in historically accurate wardrobe bring to life the illusion of a historical town – and it’s really a cha...

Someone put a lot of thought into building this museum and it paid off big time. The construct is massive – ten stories tall, 17000 square metres – one of the largest art museums in Europe. Approaching it you’ll see the 150 metre long Rainbow Panorama – the circular skywalk that rests like a crown on the building.

The museum is arresting enough at first sight – it looks like it’s growing straight out of the ground, much like Aladdin’s Cave… and like that cave, it contains terrific treasures.

How often is a royal couple gifted a palace of their very own on the occasion of their marriage by the people they rule? But that’s just what the Municipality of Aarhus did. The Royal Family continues to use the palace as a summer home to this date. The palace itself isn’t open to the public but the park is, at least during the months w...

The original building that stood on these grounds was in such a sorry state that when the Danish Prime Minister decided he wanted to live here, he had the whole place torn down and had the building you see today constructed. This was in the early 1700’s. The castle became famous as the place from where the Prime Minister’s daughter, Ann...
