Actually I love hot climates. Before 2019 I had never thought of visiting a Scandinavian country. However, due to a shoulder injury I needed to go to Denmark several times, because they have specialists for this. And what should I say, I fell in love with this beautiful country – the polite and helpful people, the interesting culture, the minimalistic design, high quality healthy food, the clean streets, nature, nightlife, and much more.
The pictures I am going to share in the coming weeks/months were taken from three trips in January/February, April and October 2019.
(Of course, I am also going to show other pictures in the coming weeks – e.g. from Berlin, cats, dogs, landscapes.)
Today, I am beginning with an overview, some general impressions from Aarhus, the second-largest city of Denmark (the capital Copenhagen is number one with regards to population). In the coming days I am then going to go more into detail.

In 2017 Aarhus (or Århus in Danish) was European Capital of Culture, so you can find many interesting museums there. A must see is the art museum ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum which is known for its “rainbow panorama”, a circular skywalk on top of the building designed by Ólafur Elíasson. Even if you are not a great fan of museums, you should really take the time to go to the roof of the building.
More photos from the inside and the rooftop coming soon.

Alongside the canal that goes through the city centre there are lots of nice restaurants, stores, and pubs. Even at night there are people sitting outside, chatting or having drinks (yes, also in winter, brrrr).

The theatre – didn’t have time to visit it, I’m afraid.

The botanical garden (sharing photos from the inside in a future post) is situated next to a windmill in the middle of a pretty park.

The Århus Cathedral with a small shop in front of it. You can find it near the Viking Museum.

Hope you enjoyed this first, tiny glance. I am going more into detail in future posts, so stay tuned.



A Happy New Year to everyone!

Which direction will this planet take?
I prefer not to talk about things like politics, religion, etc. Just look back at last year and think about the things that went wrong and the opportunities this new year might offer.
I am not here to judge, I just take photos, that’s all.
Let me just say that we should not take this world for granted.

Hi again!

This is the final part of the Netherland series.
Of course, there would have been many more pictures to show, but I did not want to present the usual sights everyone sees when they come to this country. For me it’s more about random impressions, not a comprehensive travel report or virtual sightseeing tour.
This final part has a focus on rural impressions, a flower parade and a Buddhist temple with an Avalokiteshvara shrine (Kannon/Kanzeon for the Zen guys out there – Gassho!).

As always click on the thumbnails below to see larger versions.

Hope you enjoyed this series! You can check out my Flickr pictures for alternative shots btw.

New things to come, so stay tuned.

How to begin after a pause of three years?
Let’s make it short. The reason for my absence: life.
People have asked again and again about my blog, so here is some new food.
Well not new actually, since this is just part 2 of a 2014 trip (focus on Amsterdam). However, I wanted to bring this series to a closure, before new pictures come.
This time I won’t make any promises on how often or when I will post new material.
Please bear with me…

Anyways, hope you guys have been doing fine. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line in the comments.
