Farm Cottages (1850 AD)

The Farm Cottages provide a reconstructed smallholder environment from about 1850. The environment comprises two dwelling houses, a workshop, gardens, fields, domestic animals and grazing land.


The dwelling houses are reconstructions of houses now found at "Frilandsmuseet", the Open Air Museum, North of Copenhagen. Just like the houses in the Iron Age Village, the Farm Cottages are built to be lived in and used.


The gardens belonging to the houses have been planned to resemble country gardens of about 150 years ago. There are vegetable gardens, herb gardens, fruit gardens and flowergardens. Low hedges divide the gardens up into smaller beds for the flowers, vegetables etc.


Prehistoric Families live in the houses in the summer and autumn holidays.
