You are here


The Funen Village is a village from the time of Hans Christian Andersen The Funen Village is an open-air museum that presents a Funen village milieu as it appeared in the time of Hans Christian Andersen. A village milieu has been recreated here comprising half-timbered houses, flower gardens, fences, a village pond and a village street – and all surrounded by cultivated fields. Visitors can follow the farming of the common field in the views between the buildings, observe old Danish livestock breeds, and inspect examples of Funen kitchen and ornamental gardens. Particularly during summerholidays, you will be greeted by the members of Living History. They tell the story of how ordinary country people lived in Funen in the 19th century and liven up the village atmosphere as they go about their daily chores in peasant costumes.
