Old Doors in Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark

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. Old doors in the 1864 village of the large open-air museum in Aarhus, DenmarkA 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.
