I first heard about Silkeborg, Denmark from “Parks and Recreation.” Leslie Knope went to London and met the mayor of Silkeborg, played by Heidi Klum. During my month in Aarhus, I knew I had to visit Silkeborg since I’m a big Parks and Rec fan, and sadly, I didn’t run into Heidi Klum. But it […]

Jelling might be the most historically significant place in Denmark, but Ribe is the oldest town in Denmark! It dates back to the Viking Age (so of course I loved it) so there are archaeological digs and historic spots, but it’s also a pretty town with beautiful churches and walking streets! 🙂 History of Ribe, […]

I’m back with another post about Vikings! I’m pretty sure I work them into almost every post I’ve written about Denmark, but this one is different because it’s entirely about Vikings. Jelling, Denmark is one of the most (if not the most) important Viking sites in Denmark. I have been dying to visit for years, […]

During my month in Aarhus, Denmark, I took a lot of day and weekend trips to smaller towns in the area. One of my Danish classmates recommended Ebeltoft, and I think it was my favorite day trip! It was a small town, and I had the whole town to myself on an early Sunday morning. […]

Aarhus, Denmark has some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen! The water turns ten different shades of turquoise, and it stays pretty cool so it’s nice and refreshing on a hot day. People are out sunbathing at the beach and sailing all summer! I got to visit a couple of beaches in Aarhus when […]

Aarhus, Denmark has one of the most interesting “old towns” that I’ve been to because it actually isn’t part of the city. Den Gamle By is considered to be a museum, and it’s a little outside the main part of the city. You do have to pay to enter (but I will talk about a […]

I’ve found the prettiest cobblestone street in Aarhus and maybe even in Denmark! 🙂 When I was exploring downtown Aarhus, I happened to stumble upon Møllestien, a cobblestone street with colorful houses dating from the 18th century. I didn’t see a single person there, so it isn’t a big tourist area, which is perfect for this […]

If you haven’t visited Aarhus, you may have still seen photos of the famous rainbow panorama! The ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (or ARoS Art Museum) is one of the most interesting museums I’ve been to, and it’s well known for its rainbow you can walk through on the roof. If you’re planning a trip to Aarhus, you […]

If you’ve been keeping up with my adventures, you’ll know that I just spent a month living in Aarhus, Denmark! I was there to take a class on the Viking Age, and while I’ve lived in Copenhagen for a few months, this was my first time in Jutland. Aarhus is the largest city in Jutland […]

Somehow when I was living in Copenhagen, I never heard about Dragør, even though it’s so close to the city! I happened to read about it when looking for hidden gems in Copenhagen for my trip back, and I’m so glad I did. Dragør is the cutest fishing village I’ve ever visited, and it’s my favorite day […]

If you read Shakespeare in high school, there’s a good chance you read “Hamlet” and learned that it took place in Denmark (“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark,” anyone?). Kronborg Castle, or Elsinore, is where “Hamlet” takes place and it actually exists, and you can visit it in Helsingør! Helsingør is just a quick trip […]
