  1. Aarhus is cool, so cool that I told myself to give it a miss this time so I can return to Denmark one day to see it. 😂
    The museum’s rainbow observatory is definitely eye-catching. Can you pleas explain what is that dish?? Apart from the lettuce and the chicken I don’t think I can recognise any other ingredient…

    1. If I remember correctly, it was the slow-braised chicken with cauliflower sauce, served together with vegetables and chicken stock. The round things are mustard seeds which are strangely sweet. I thought they were peas 🙂

  2. These photographs are phenomenal. Denmark is high on my list of countries to visit and the ARoS Museum is one I’ve wanted to visit for a couple of years now. The architecture looks unreal as well!

    1. He looks so real! When you come closer, you can even see the veins in his eyes and tissues on his skin 🙂 The artist really has a fine eye for detail.

  3. Your coverage of (relatively) lesser known cities and towns like this is what makes your blog so fascinating. That and the beautiful photos of the local architecture and gastronomy scenes keep me craving for more! Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you, Bama! You are too kind. Although small towns are less “instagramable”, I personally think they have their own charm. Additionally, it is also easier to write about an unknown place than to write about a tourist magnet where millions of people have already visited 🙂

  4. That’s my little City, Len. And these beautiful photos come so much alive here. Brilliant photography. 🙂 Have you been in Aarhus lately?

    1. Yes, I was there in late summer. Just a weekend trip from Hamburg. It was still cold even in August 🙂
      Regarding the challenge, I must kindly deny the nomination because I found it is a bit difficult to integrate into my blog. But thanks a lot for nominating me 😉

      1. Yeah, it wasn’t a very good summer this year and danish weather is so unpredictable. I respect your wish with the challenge. Was my way to tell you how great a blog you’ve got here. Cheers. 🙂

    1. Aarhus is a bit out of the way, but the town is really interesting. You should give it a try if you like modern art and architecture. Another plus point is that the town is still under the radar of most tourists 🙂

      1. I will definitely go – it is a bit out of the way, as you say, but looks worth it. There are more things to combine it with in that part of Denmark.

  5. Yet another city I didn’t know anything about until your terrific post. I tend to like student cities for their vibrance. The architecture is stunning and I love the mix of old and new.

    1. Quite clever, I think. A clear example is the ARoS. They put a colourful walkway on the top of an old building, and the number of visitors soar 🙂
