Where - Copenhagen to Aalborg to Hirtshals
Weather - showers, 18°C
Distance - 470km
The trip to Aalborg ( about an hour from our ferry departure point ) was only about 4 hours drive and we had all day to do it. The journey meant crossing to a large middle island of Denmark across an 18km bridge (toll was 240 Danish Kroner or about $50AUD)
To break the journey we visited The Funen Village which is an open air museum from Hans Christian Andersen times. It was very interesting - a bit like Australiana Village I visited as a child ( can't remember if this was the name of it). We spent a few hours here.
We stayed at Aalborg and our Airbnb was a quirky place, fully self contained and private which had nearly everything we needed (except we couldn't get the WiFi to work). The next day we drove to Hirtshals where we had time to visit the bunker museum which part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall and consisted of installations for cannons, machine guns, radar, beach obstacles and mines. Quite interesting (probably more so for Brad than me).
That afternoon we boarded the ferry. Holds up to 800 vehicles. Our cabin is basic but really not that much different than the interior cabin we took on a Royal Caribbean cruise. Next stop - Faroe IslandsRead more
