Aarhus, a gem (day one)

On Saturday afternoon we needed to run a few errands so headed out to see what we could find. The campground is in a very small village, so we ended up in the city of Aarhus. It was a gem! We didn’t have a lot of time to explore that day, but we did walk around a bit. We parked near the Rådhusparken, a large park in the center of town where the ARoS Art Museum is located. The girls had fun running around and playing.

We kept walking down towards the water and found this fun playground on a rooftop.


By then everyone was hungry and had to pee, so we walked around a found a delightful downtown area with a delicious pizza place. We had a belated birthday dinner from me, as a treat from Opa!

Afterwards we walked back to the car, through the same park.




Some of you may be wondering (and I do want to keep this as a journal as well), so this is what we saw in regards to Covid-19 in Denmark: no one wears masks (which was strange for a few days after leaving Germany where we have been wearing them daily since the end of April), there are a lot of signs about keeping 1-2 meters distance from others but they aren’t always followed, all shops and restaurants are open, there is hand sanitiser available everywhere and there are very few cases in the country. They did have a fairly strict lockdown in March and April and seem to have pretty effectively flattened the curve. It will be interesting to see how the regulations vary country to country and as the year goes on….
