Experience reenactment at the open-air museum Hjerl Hede

Experience the living open-air museum, where houses and workshops come to life as in the old days.

All summer from June 29 to August 11, Hjerl Hede is brought to life.

Throughout the houses and workshops, you will embark on a journey through time. Through reenactments, we show how life was lived hundreds of years ago.

Throughout the summer, there will be both permanent and changing activities, so you can easily use your annual pass multiple times over the summer and share new experiences with each other.


Practical Information

The reenactment takes place from June 29 to August 11, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. The museum closes at 5:30 PM.

At Hjerl Hede, there is always:

  • Free parking
  • Free admission for everyone under 18 (Please note that some activities require an additional fee)
  • Free admission for dogs on a leash


Historical crafts

At the Craft Square by the historic playground, children (and brave adults) can try an old-fashioned craft.

Try assembling half-timbering, mixing your own paint, laying tiles, and building a wall. There will be a gift for the children.


Take a journey through time

  • Visit the living, historical homes
  • Hear about life in the old days
  • Buy an edible souvenir from the grocer's shop, where the shelves are stocked as they were in 1933
  • Use your senses in the village kitchens and taste historical dishes
  • Look inside the historical workshops, some of which are alive
  • Buy delicious, old-fashioned baked goods in the bakery


Especially fun for children

  • Try a craft at the Craft Square
  • Take a horse-drawn carriage ride around the museum
  • Join in historical games
  • Board the old steam locomotive
  • Become a student in the old village school (remember to buy a school ticket at the museum entrance)
  • Slide, swing, and ride on a penny-farthing at the historic playground


Children and young people under 18 always have free admission. Please note that some activities require an additional fee.

You can also rent a pull wagon, which is good for lunch packs, outerwear, and tired little feet. Buy a token at the entrance.

Take a journey through time at the Open-Air Museum Hjerl Hede for a summer filled with historical experiences and traditional crafts.
