Last year, the corona-lockdown, resulted in me travelling around the country to do research at all the important viking sites in Denmark. Aarhus was founded in the viking age and holds a great, and very small, on-site exhibition from the viking age.
From there we walk up through history by visiting the impressive Cathedral of Aarhus; the longest and tallest church in Denmark. Its construction began in the year 1190.
Further up in history we enjoy a visit to the most extensive Open Air Museum in Denmark; Den Gamle By; like a town in the town. The Museum holds houses and exhibitions from the 1700-1800'ds, from early 1900 and from 1974!!
Yes, you read the year correctly; my childhood is now history. In the main season activities from days passed by, taking place here.
At the end of our historic line we walk up the stairs and take a walk in the famous Olafur Eliasson installation: "Your rainbow panorama" with a beautiful view over the town, This is at ARoS Art Museum; one of the largest art museums in Europe
