“To travel is to live.” Hans Christian Andersen
Last August my mom and I went to Denmark and we fell in love with this beautiful country! The design, the streets the food, everything was amazing! Our first stop in Denmark was Copenhagen, you can head back on the blog to see what we loved in Copenhagen. After Copenhagen we drove to Aarhus, we stopped in Odense to see Hans Christian Andersen’s home and museum, it was such a cute little town and I loved reading all of the quotes from his fairy tales.
We were lucky enough to have some friends in Aarhus that gave us an awesome tour of the city. Aarhus is an up and coming city, it was so hip! We were there when so many new things were opening! Here are a few of our favorite things!
We stayed in an Air BNB near Bruuns Galleri and it was the perfect central location.
We were there on the opening day for the Selling Rooftop, they created a beautiful garden area on the rooftop of the department store. There was a cute restaurant and little amphitheater and a glass sidewalk that you could walk out on and look at the street below.
We found the best street food market, there were so many options and the food was so delicious. Make sure to visit Aarhus Street Food.
We only had a few hours at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, we wish we would have had more time, but walking around the Rainbow Panorama gave a great view of the city.
I am always drawn to the water on trips, one of my favorite things to do is walk along the water. There were so many fun things to do around DOKK1, it had just opened up as well! And they have the coolest parking garage, it was like we traveled to the future. We were also able to see the boat that the Queen of Denmark was staying on!
I also love visiting Botanical Gardens when I travel, I love to see all of the plant varieties!
I wish we would have had more time at the Den Gamle By, we had to run through it quick but I could have spent a lot more time there!
And most of these photos were taken on the cutest street I have ever seen, you must go to Mollestien!
