Denmark Road Trip: Aarhus, the Danish Party City

Denmark Road Trip: Aarhus, the Danish Party City

The first part of our Denmark road trip took us to Odense, a relatively quiet city compared to what was next: Aarhus. Home to Aarhus University, the majority of the Jutland city’s population are students and it’s known for being a bit of a party town. Read on to find out my favorite things to do in Aarhus, and how I ended up spending my night bar hopping with a group of 19-year-olds who were wearing Hawaiian leis!

Copenhagen was amazing and quickly became one of my favorite cities. But we wanted to see what else the happiest country in the world had to offer, so we set off on a Denmark road trip. I had learned to drive a stick shift the week before I left in Brooklyn and was excited to take on the challenge, but when I arrived to pick up my car at Sixt they actually gave me an automatic car at no extra charge! Can we pause for a second and talk about how adorable European cars are? They are the perfect size for people like myself, who were not blessed with tall genes.

The first stop on our Denmark road trip was the city of Odense, famous for being the birthplace to writer Hans Christian Andersen.

Some exciting news here! I’ve created my first ever travel video. These types of technological skills don’t come naturally to me, so I figured I should try my hand at video editing with something so beautiful, not even my lack of computer know how could ruin it: the fjords of Norway.

Jetting off on a two-day detour to Norway during my Denmark trip was a slightly over-the-top expense, but I’m glad I did it because I saw some incredible things there: the fjords (post to come later) and the adorable city of Bergen, surrounded by seven beautiful mountains. I only got to spend about 24 hours exploring Bergen, but despite a severe lack of sleep and inability to afford food, we somehow crammed in almost all the major “to-dos.” This post comes just in time for my NY-based readers, as Norwegian just launched some CRAZY new cheap direct flights to Bergen!

An Unexpectedly Cool Place To Visit: Kodbyen, Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District

On the outer fringes of Vesterbro lies Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District, called Kodbyen (literally: Meat City). Among the functioning meat processing facilities, wholesalers, butchers and refrigeration trucks you might spot stylishly clad Danes heading toward one of the city’s quirky new bars or trendy restaurants. That’s because in an effort to revitalize the drab neighborhood, Copenhagen leased abandoned facilities to creative business, art galleries and restaurants & bars starting in the early 2000s.
