    Take a day off from modern technology and go on a time travel back in time. At Esrum Convent you can experience medieval atmosphere and hear interesting stories. The 3. Weekend in June they host a Medieval Market, while the last week of the summer break offers adventure camp for kids in the age 8 to 13. Here the kids get to shoot with arrows, fight with swards, make a bonfire and much more. At Frilandsmuseet you get to walk around in the reconstructed village with old farms and houses. It is free and allows you to see small plays and cute farm animals.    
    You will probably spent several days at one of the many Danish beaches, so why not learn some more about the life in the water? At Øresund Aquarium (Øresundsakvariet), you get to, besides seeing all the animals fro Øresund (the Sound), fish for crabs and go on a whale safari to see porpoises in open waters. Also The Blue Planet (Den Blå Planet) offers you to catch crabs. Here you can also go on a Øresund Safari and maybe see one of the many cute seals.
