  • Amazing Buildings
  • I saw this for the second time now. Last time I saw this was in 1985. I like it even more now. Only the Staveloftet should be reason enough to go there. A kind of stabbur from 1340 !!! From the period before the Black Death. A lot of buildings have been added, and it is never boring in this museum
