On our trip from Aarhus back to Northern Germany, we took the chance to see a little bit of Southern Denmark.
According to our empirical observations, we can state the following:
They eat a lot of Hot Dogs and call them Røde Pølser.
They love bicycling.
All kids are blond here. And nearly all adults.
The many summer cottages here are filled with German middle class tourists and their blond kids.
The nature is similar to Sylt. Both places are expensive, but Southern Denmark is less crowded.
This little country with its six million people produces two of the most famous beer brands in the world: Carlsberg and Tuborg.
Denmark is great at playing Handball.
Danish Design is loved worldwide, see Skågen or Bang und Olufsen.
Well, these were our observations in the short time we were here. And of course, there are no clichés included in there.
A car beach. You’re really allowed to come here with your car. Sorry for my astonishment but I haven’t seen anything like this before. Middle and Northern Europe is actually known for their environmentally conscious behaviour. And of all things, this is the place you’re allowed to access the beach with your car. Couldn’t imagine that.
It’s idyllic and perfect for families. It’s convenient not having to carry everything as you can go there by car.
The wind’s trying to blow you away and the dune landscape is majestically beautiful.
A short trip to Blåvand was enough to put the rest of Denmark on our list.
Ribe is Denmark’s oldest city and very well visited. During the whole Middle Ages, the city included the Denmark’s most important harbour at the North Sea. It was an important trade center.
Today the small town has no important meaning at all. With only a little more than 8000 habitants, this may be a town in Denmark, but for us, this is a village.
The Old Town and the Cathedral of Ribe is worth seeing. We saw everything very quickly. It was unspectacular, but really cute. It’s definitely worth a side trip.
After seeing Ribe, we finally continued our trip to Tyskland (Germany). Dear Denmark, we’ll see us again.
