After our first week in Denmark, we left Copenhagen and ventured to other places in the country, such as Ebletoft. This little town is so cute. Charming, small old homes and cobblestone narrow streets.
We also ventured into Århus and visited Den Gamle By, the old village. This is a fun place to go, made of houses from a long time ago where you can see what life was like. You can go through the houses and see house set ups and business set ups like a post office, bakery hat maker etc. They also have a small market in the centre where they sell trinkets. The people working here are also dressed in old style clothing to make the whole experience that much more authentic.
Our last stop on this trip was to Sjælland. We were taken from there on day trips. The one in particular that I could rave about for days is Møns Clint. This is an area in Denmark where there are massive white cliffs on the side of the water. The white is a chalk, which causes the shoreline to become white, and fade into the blue water. I can’t wait to come back one day with all the photography knowledge I now have and really take advantage of the many photo opportunities.
To get down to the shore you walk down over 900 stairs!!…. And walk up them to get back to the top! Then in the gift store at the top you can get tourist t-shirts which state how many stairs you have just survived! It is well worth the climb.
Shameless tourist photo.
On this day we also saw another “castle” which had been turned into a hotel.
This is not the hotel, but was outside.
We also visited some manors while on the road, unfortunately I don’t know their names.
I’ve also been to the castle below a few times now, which has been turned into a hotel and restaurant.
So this has been an general overall look at my first trip to Denmark 6 years ago!
If anyone has any requests for a more in depth review on these places, just let me know and I’ll get started!
