Artsy Aarhus

On the way to Copenhagen lies a small city of importance, so we popped in for a couple of temperature-breaking days to walk the cafe-lined canal, check out a luscious yarn shop, wash clothes, explore a living colour-wheel and enjoy modern art Danish-style. Aarhus may be small but it’s delightful!  In part because it was just so good to get off the train!

Particularly so. Wednesday and Thursday, we spent an extra long time riding the rails due to a mismanaged train connection on the part of the railway, a delayed border crossing, a train cancelation and an extended wait to reschedule. The German train system is struggling to meet population demands and apparently what was once a state-of-the-art system declines because of a lack of maintenance and funding. We felt it.

Here is Aarhus. Charming and rambunctious!

    Sorry to hear of the train troubles – yikes. Did you spend any time in Hamburg at all, or just fighting the train/schedule, etc. Love the picture of Gord with the giant boy statue. 🙂

    While our train troubles were somewhat disconcerting, we were not alone. We met some lively people in the same boat, so to speak. And, I sat with a family from N. Van! Great fun! We saw a bit of Hamburg. Happened on a Catholic Church and school, of all things. Virtually no tourists and no English. My high school German came in handy — such as it is. My impression of Hamburg is all business. Hotels cater to the executive-type and everyone else went about their business as if we had accidentally stumbled off the beaten-tourist track. Its architecture reminds me of New England, all dressed up in red brick and cobblestones. A lovely spot.
