Hjem til Aarhus


Unfortunately, it is many years since there has been time for a whole day in this city.
A danish author Ib Henrik Cavling (world famous only in Denmark) coined the phrase::
The city of smiles” about the second largest danish city, Aarhus – my student city,
with good years at the local University of Aarhus and Aarhus School of Business.
These photos aren’t from one single walk but taken over several laps at quick visits.

A walk inspired from “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.


Entry from the sea side.


Kayaker with fishing boats as a backdrop.


The museum “The Old Town” (Den gamle by) a “village” close to the center.
Old danish houses separated around in Denmark
Then built up again to become part of a historical witness of the past.


A street in the old museum village.


Traffic in Aarhus, with a little bit help from a bus.




Biking in the streets of Aahus. All kind of people and bikes.


Street music.


Street art.

Aarhus Cityhall and its iconic tower.

The title is borrowed from a song from a local band – translated: “Home to Aarhus”

  1. I like very much these pictures, really a charming city! But why it is called the city of smiles? People there is particularly joyful and nice? 😉

  2. It’s a city I would know nothing about but for your blog, Drake, so thank you for sharing it. When I return I may need to rest my weary feet by riding in that pony and trap. 🙂 Thank you so much for thinking of me. I hope your new year is going well.
