How to move a village

Just north of Copenhagen is Brede Open-air Museum, which is a huge collection of old houses from all over Denmark and Scandinavia. To preserve and exhibit the houses, they were carefully taken down at their place of origin, transported to Brede and re-assembled and restored here. This has created a collection of mainly farmhouses and a few townhouses that show the differences in building style in the Danish regions. And as this is one of the few free museums in Denmark, it's well worth the visit. More about this place in the days to come.
