Old town in Aarhus



all images © Eni Turkeshi Photography

Last weekend i had the chance to visit the city of Aarhus , one of the biggest cities of Denmark.
The city gets the name from the river runing into it.

That`s why it reminded me of Amsterdam a bit because of its bicycles,river and some of its houses.

It`s one of the most energic cities of Denmark thanks to the many students living here.Although we did not have a long time to visit it , i can say it was a lovely city, which i wish i will revisit soon.
But what i want to talk about in this post , is the Old Town in Aarhus, a historic treasure.The town is celebrating its 100 anniversary.
The town consists of 75 old houses , gardens,shops,workshops,and exhibitions.You can feel yourself living in an Andersen tale for a while;)
There were different shops of different crafts there such as bicycle makers, shoe makers , tailors , coppersmiths, barber etc.
I also found a photographers house:) It was so cool with great furniture and an old camera to die for.
The houses were very lovely too and mostof them very well furnished.

The river passes between some of the houses and lots of swans and gooses made it even more lovely.
When i saw them and the houses for a moment i felt myself like a protagonist at `Nils Holgerson` movie:))

There are different exhibitions and events being organized here and also picnik houses are available for the visitors .
I think this is a ver very good idea.You can have your food in a very special old house .

Actually there are a loft of things to be told about this special city but i will leave this to the photos to show;)

One last info: The entrance fee is 11 euro for tourists and around 7.5 euro for students.
