^Glad you like it mate!


Vallø

South of Copenhagen you will find the small village of Vallø mostly known for it's castle
[IMG]http://i25.************/t85gtk.jpg[/IMG]

The area down there is very rural with a very typical Danish landscape
[IMG]http://i30.************/41c7p.jpg[/IMG]

Baahhhh..
[IMG]http://i25.************/2jc91rb.jpg[/IMG]

Pruuuhhh..
[IMG]http://i25.************/2jcrys.jpg[/IMG]

Yawn..
[IMG]http://i26.************/29w8lmb.jpg[/IMG]

Getting closer - the castle moat
[IMG]http://i30.************/2vcf8ug.jpg[/IMG]

Restaurant..
[IMG]http://i28.************/15g7b0i.jpg[/IMG]

Moat again
[IMG]http://i31.************/8y5e12.jpg[/IMG]

Whoop there it is..
[IMG]http://i26.************/i2obb8.jpg[/IMG]

The oldest parts are from 1256 - the main part from 1580
[IMG]http://i31.************/2im556b.jpg[/IMG]

Much of the interior was sadly destroyed in a large fire in 1893
[IMG]http://i31.************/29glxko.jpg[/IMG]

Another part of Vallø is it's forest "Vallø Storskov"
[IMG]http://i32.************/jskmr9.jpg[/IMG]

In typical Danish fashion this is more like a tree plantation than an actual forest..
[IMG]http://i30.************/9ghjx5.jpg[/IMG]

But a nice place for a relaxing walk never the less
[IMG]http://i30.************/2ahfspw.jpg[/IMG]

And we're out again...
[IMG]http://i27.************/o9pld0.jpg[/IMG]

That's it for this time.. new pics comming soon

I love these pics. After seeing Adam's aebler I wanted to visit denmark but sure it isn't easy from italy.
Now I know where to go for a five day trip, how long by car if I drive from Copen (which is where I will land, presumably).

This is all within a radius of around 70 (probably less) km from Copenhagen and should be possible to visit within 2 days.

All places so far can be reached in under an hour from downtown Copenhagen by car..

For pretty precise driving times you can try: www.maps.google.dk

Hillerød

Desided to go visit my favorite castle 'Frederiksborg Castle' in the city of Hillerød today
[IMG]http://i25.************/10gn3w6.jpg[/IMG]

There are main roads going there, but the sideroads are more fun
[IMG]http://i27.************/28tb606.jpg[/IMG]

With 30.000 people Hillerød isn't exactly the largest of cities - and as usual in Denmark it's very sprawly

Cars are usually allowed to bring goods to the shops before opening hours

Very nice pics again. I'm back from a roadtrip through Denmark, and i visited Ribe, Hanstholm and Aabenraa. They weren't as nice as the towns you pictured, but Ribe was pretty nice. Hanstholm was nothing special (except for natural scenery!) and Aabenraa was average.

ARGH you missed Tønder (and Møgeltønder)...shame on you!

I could have told you that Aabenraa really isn't anything special

In general the cities/towns on Zealand (esp. the cities around CPH) are more beutiful than the ones in Jutland.

i passed by Tønder, but since it was already around 5 pm, i needed to get to the campsite in Ribe.
The setting of Aabenraa is quite nice though. Half of Hanstholm stinks because of the fishing industry, luckily, the campsite was just outside of the smelly zone.

Don't really know where Hanstholm is but after your description I guess it's somewhere up north along the westcoast

Hanstholm is an important harbor on the northwest of Jutland. It's shown on most non-detailed maps, but it has a low population. It's where the ferries to Iceland and Norway depart.

There is a nice campsite there at 40m altitude in the dunes with an excellent view of the Skagerrak. Overall, the west coast have a very nice scenery, especially north of Esbjerg, all the way to Hanstholm (I haven't been further up north along the coast).

Thanks mate - yeah Jutland isn't bad, but we all know that Zealand is where it's happening

The scenery in Jutland is more beautiful though...

I guess that south of Esbjerg it reminds you to much of the Netherlands
