A different Denmark – Kerteminde Bay


Lars and I tend to have a positive attitude towards life. Sure, we were disappointed on that Thursday, but we now had a good reason to come back later in spring. And we still had 2 days left of our holiday! On Friday, we first went to a place that we both love very much: Kerteminde Bay. Kerteminde itself is…

A different Denmark – The Beach


I am not referring to the movie, but to our favorite beach, which is situated on the island of Zealand. To be more precise, it is located near the village of Magleby, to the south of Copenhagen. Why is this beach so important for us? First of all, I am simply in love with the Danish coast. Because the Baltic…

A different Denmark – Dreaming of summer

Five burial mounds dominate the landscape in the hills south of Maden. Helnæs is first mentioned in historical records in 1231 as “Hælghænæs” (sacred promontory). Take the narrow road embankment out to…

A different Denmark – Thurø harbor


Did you know that there are more than 400 (named) islands in Denmark? Not all of them are inhabited. Some are connected to one of the main islands by bridges, other can only be  reached by boat/ferry. And with more than 7.000 kilometers of coastline, you’ll find plenty of beaches and harbors in all sizes. It’s one of the main…

A different Denmark – Thurø


And why different? First of all, because we did discover new places during our holiday! And second, because familiar places can look unusual when they are covered with a blanket of snow. During our first weekend Lars and I took it easy and went to some of our favorite places. And how enchanted they looked! Like Thurø. If you don’t know…
