Quotes

Den Gamle By ( "The Old Town') is an award-winning attraction where visitors can walk through time and experience life during three time periods – 1800s, 1920s and 1970s. Initially founded in 1909 as the world's first open-air museum of urban history and culture, it comprises a stunning collection of authentic Danish buildings that have been painstakingly restored and furnished to replicate each period. Exploring the half timbered houses, old-style stores, gardens and workshops, visitors can step back to the days of the famous Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen, or venture to the 1927 quarter, described as the 'Modern Town', to see the affects of industrialisation with electric lighting, petrol pumps and telephone wires appearing amongst the newer styled houses. Leaping forward 50 years, a stroll down the 1970's shopping street reveals 'Poul's Radio and TV Shop' with its retro electronic stock of TVs, radio sets, reel to reel tape recorders and records, a perfectly 'dated' pastry shop where you can grab a coffee and there is even a gynaecologist's clinic. Complemented by costumed staff living out the various roles, it offers a realistic engagement with another time."

I would like to clarify that we intend to live up to the long term contract with Shell, which we entered into in 2011."
