    1 - Aarhus

    August 3, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    10 hours on the train was a bit tooooo long. But we survived! Sadly a part of the group had a lot of trouble with the trains so they arrived later. We checked in into the Airbnb which is located at the harbor so also really central. We have a really nice view with a small balcony which is great. After we checked in and showered (since we were still wearing the clothes from Friday and it was disgusting) we strolled around the city to find something to eat. We ended up with a pizza.
    So after we had an delicious dinner we went to get the rest of the group whom finally arrived at the station and went for another walk through the city. Just exploring and seeing things, but taking it easy. My impression of Aarhus is really clean and safe. It’s not big like tourist big so you’re feeling kind of with the locals. It’s nice!
    This weekend in Aarhus there is a sort of festival in the harbor. So there are stages everywhere and they had a big firework show.
    But now it’s time to really catch up with some sleep since I haven’t really slept at all past night.

    Tomorrow we will continue our journey to Copenhagen.

    Leaving Aarhus

    August 4, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Aarhus is a beautiful city. In the morning we had a really nice breakfast at grod, after that we went for a walk to the museaum Aros. It known from the rainbow panoramic view. It was really weird walking up there since everything was a weird color. But a truly nice experience. Then we checked out the museum, it was really big and it does have a lot of paintings in different styles and from different times. It was really nice to see. After the museum we went back to hostel to get our stuff and went on to the station. Goodbye Aarhus. 😇Read more

    Der Tag in Aarhus

    October 11, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Heute ging es nach Aarhus... Kurz nach 7 Uhr machten wir fest und die Stadtbesichtigung konnte beginnen. Wir besuchten Kirchen und die königliche Sommerresidenz. Zusätzlich besuchte ich noch das Stadion von Aarhus GF und dann ging es 15 Uhr auch schon wieder los nach Oslo...Read more

    Aarhus by Night

    November 26, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Travelling in winter can be a disadvantage when cloud cover and the Earth's angle work in vicious tandem to create 3:30pm sunsets. This was the time in Aarhus after I had arrived and eaten lunch...

    However, a seasoned traveller can turn anything into an advantage. And so began my night-time (late afternoon 😆) tour of Aarhus. I had no plan. I simply followed the neon signs and Christmas lights from block to block and saw where my feet took me.

    I saw a rainbow halo, a haunting yet beautiful Christmas tree, a hyggelig street and a rooftop lookout. Spontaneity can be the best plan of all.

    Gamle By

    March 8, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ❄️ 0 °C

    Mein Tag bestand heute aus einen kleinen Strandspaziergang im Nebel, lesen und lümmeln auf der Couch und am Abend Sauna.
    Das Wetter hat heute einen Teil seiner Bandbreite gezeigt, wenn auch nicht unbedingt die Schönste. Schnee am Morgen, Nebel den ganzen Tag und Regen am Abend.

    Und weil das jetzt nicht so ein spannender Tag für euch Follower ist, gibt es einen Bericht von unserem Ausflug nach Gamle By in Aarhus.
    Julia und ich waren im Oktober 2015 in Aarhus.
    Auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert ist das Museumsdorf „Gamble By“.
    Gamle By = Alte Stadt, ist ein Freiluftmuseum, welches in Form einer mittelalterlichen Stadt angelegt wurde. Die Häuser, welche man dort findet, sind originale aus ganz Dänemark, welche an ihren ursprünglichen Standorten abgebaut und in Gamle By wieder aufgebaut wurden.
    Es gibt Häuser aus verschiedenen Zeitepochen, um 1800, um 1900 und die 1970er. Einige Häuser stehen auch für ein Handwerk aus der jeweiligen Zeit. Beeindruckend fand ich die alte Apotheke. Die Wohnsituation der Menschen in der Zeit ist recht authentisch nachgestellt. Da macht sich bei mir immer Dankbarkeit breit, im hier und jetzt zu leben.
    Die Bäckerei in Gamle By ist in Betrieb und verkauft sehr leckeres Gebäck und Brot. Man kann sich auch mit einem Fiaker über das alte Pflaster kutschieren lassen.
    In einem Mietshaus kann man sich mehrere Wohnungen ansehen, die im 70ziger Jahre Stil eingerichtet sind. Witzig, in einem Wohnzimmer lief im Fernsehen das Fußball WM Endspiel von 1974.
    Auch die Innenstadt von Aarhus ist sehenswert, Cafés und tolle kleine Geschäfte findet man in der Altstadt.
    Wir hatten bei unserem Tagesausflug nach Aarhus nicht mehr viel Zeit um zum Beispiel dem Kunstmuseum mit seiner Rainbow Panorama auf dem Dach einen Besuch abzustatten.
    Aarhus hat ein wenig den Ruf der ewig Zweiten...
    Zweitgrößte Stadt Dänemarks, steht erst an zweiter Stelle nach Kopenhagen, wenn es um Städtereisen in Dänemark geht. Aarhus, Kulturhauptstadt 2017, ist auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert... und ich muss da definitiv noch mal hin.

    6th stop: Aarhus

    September 14, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Very short stay in aarhus as it wasn't planned and I wanted to break up the train ride between Goeteborg and Amsterdam. Nontheless, aarhus is quite a pretty city, a good end for the Scandinavian part of my travels.Read more

    September 8, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Spent the entirety of Saturday reading a book I bought at the airport in Germany ‘The shortest history of Germany’. Loved it. Clearly couldn’t put it down. From the dawn of writing to today. Great insight!

    We had breakfast with Nanna’s boyfriend Andreas and a friend of hers. Then pizza dinner with their cousin I had met at her Auties party Tina.

    Was a really good relaxing day!

    Yesterday we headed to the Moesguard museum. Bloody hell what a building. Grows out of the ground with grass all up its sloped roof which you can walk and relax on. Great view to the seas.
    The museum was great fun. History of people of Denmark and particularly Aarhus. Really well done! I got to the see the Grauballe man up close and personal. The Iron Age bog man. Fully preserved. They actually had to put him in a box under similar conditions to the bog (which holds no bacteria) to ensure he was fully leatherised and not shrink and lose his form. The best preserved man to date.

    The museum is interactive and fun. Ideal to learn about this area and greater Denmark!

    Into town and we found an all you can eat Sushi restaurant ( sounds bad but..) that you order through iPads. Absolutely delicious. Probably would have been cheap but we also ordered wine which was so nice we had a few 😁

    Back home to relax and hit the hay.

    Sickness and Aros museum

    September 12, 2017 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Had a fever and sweats through the night but felt ok by morning. A few periods through the day when the lurgy wanted to claim me but I am enjoying the lemon and honey drinks 👍
    Thor took us to one of the Aarhus museums before he had Uni this afternoon. It's modern art so some pieces are quite questionable...."that's art??" ...and some were interesting. There's a huge very lifelike creation, Big Boy. It has been there for a while apparently and an Australian made it. There was also a film piece there by an Australian.
    We came back to a lovely soup made by Karen then a rest afternoon. By then I needed a snooze- the flu was getting me a bit.
    Nanna made us tea and we had a movie night with Thor. Ib and Thor usually watch movies of a Tuesday night but Ib is away tonight so we are standing in for him 😉
    We watched Red Dog with German subtitles!

    Meeting Stella's brother

    August 29, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Had a relaxing morning with Ása and Stell. Watched a few Danish movies with subtitles. We were going to recline in front of the projector in the bar but the DVD player was being funky.

    It was sunny then rained then sunny again.

    We left around 4pm and drove to Niklas house to meet him and his gorgeous children. 2 year old Agnes and 6 month old Ella. Pernille followed home shortly after and we caught up over noodles and beer.

    Was lovely to finally meet them! Stayed a couple of hours and then Niklas drove us to Nana’s where we are staying.

    Bit worn out then so off to bed :)

    November 27, 2019 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    For me, Aarhus's main attraction is the the ARoS Art Museum, due to its top-floor, immersive and panoramic rainbow walkway! But I actually stayed at the museum for a whole day (well until sunset), exploring every exhibition.

    I met Boy, was geography nerding out in an exhibition about "home", then film nerded out in a Douglas Gordon exhibition of video art!

    Today confirmed my suspicions. I like the #art.
