Half-Timbered Brick Buildings in a Recreated Village (Aarhus, Denmark)

The half-timbered brick buildings in the villages of Denmark look like something out of a fairy tale.

And when someone wants to get rid of one of these charming old buildings they often get sent to a recreated village like Den Gamle By. Here they are painstakingly reconstructed and filled with authentic furniture, plants and sometimes even people of the time period that they came from.

I have picked mostly the homes from the village set in 1864. The lantern on a half-timbered wall in the village Den Gamle By, recreated villages set in different times, in Aarhus, DenmarkThe windows are all multi-pane glass as they hadn’t yet mastered the art of large pieces of glass. Leaded window in an old half-timbered building painted in red ochre in Den Gamle By, recreated villages set in different times, in Aarhus, DenmarkSome modern boys from a school trip having lunch on the other side of a canal.

The bricks were often covered with a very thin layer of mud and then painted with red ochre or ox blood to achieve these rich dark reds. A window on an old half-timbered building in Den Gamle By, recreated villages set in different times, in Aarhus, DenmarkThis is from the 1927 village – the buildings were sometimes the same but the advertising was updated. 'Beer Here', an old style poster on red brick half-timbered building in Den Gamle By, recreated villages set in different times, in Aarhus, DenmarkCee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week was to take something from a photo and feature it. Possible topics are geometry, bushes, window, brick, curtain, green, tan, wall, building, dark red, tree, etc. With this set of buildings I seem to have covered everything except for curtains which don’t seemed to have been used much back in those days.
