Travel destination - Denmark - Århus - Henne
- Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and was first settled by Vikings, who called it “Aros,” an Old Norse word meaning “river mouth.” The city has two 13th century cathedrals, an open air museum – Den Gamle By (The Old Town) – that dates from the 15th century, the indoor/outdoor Moesgaard Prehistoric Museum, set in a 250-acre forest south of town, and the art museum ARoS located in the centre of Aarhus (in the conference area).
- Henne Mølle å Badehotel is set in a spectacular natural setting, hidden between the dunes at the end of a 4-kilometer long gravel road through a beautiful, protected heath area in the Danish North Sea Nature Park near Henne Strand.
We wanted to spend part of our summer in good old Denmark. So we headed for Aarhus where we stayed at the new Comwell Hotel in a really nice corner room with a great view. We did the mandatory strolling in the charming streets and of course we visited the beautiful ARoS Museum followed by a really nice dinner at the Food Hall.
Leaving Aarhus we headed for the west coast where we stayed a couple of days at the seaside hotel, Henne Mølle Å, designed by Poul Henningsen and of course generously decorated with various PH lamps 🙂 A delightful stay in beautiful surroundings – inside and out – and delicious food as well.
