Den Gamle By in Aarhus is a museum that contains several of historical ‘villages’ reconstructed from different time periods in Denmark.
There are many examples of different types of old doors on buildings. A wood door with a heart carved into it, set in under a steep stairway. At home moon-shapes are carved into outhouses so maybe this is a charming latrine. A red door in a red building. The buildings are painted with historically-correct coloured paints from that time period.Wooden door to a shed with some great hinges. Another cool wrought-iron hinge. An old latch and a lock that looks a tad newer.Exterior doors to houses often had extremely decorative hardware. Decorative brass hinge with lock and door pull. This doesn’t look Danish at all.Carved wooden door way leading into a two-storey house of an important person in the town. A simpler doorway in plain old No 33, its only decoration is a horseshoe over the door. A green interior door to a cupboard. I like the airing holes cut into it – so practical and so attractive.Another old door with a cut-out that frames an artfully-placed copper kettle.
