24 hours in Aarhus

Når Påsken banker på døren, og man trænger til at komme lidt væk, så tager man da toget til Århus! Mange Københavnere ville nok ikke indrømme det, men uanset hvad, så har jeg nydt 24 timer i Århus over weekenden. Butikker, kaffebarer, museum og nyåbnet hotel var på to-do-listen.

Et sjælendt billede af moi!

En hurtig gåtur fra stationen og man står på Scandic Aarhus City. Indcheckningen gik fint, selvom bloggerhjernen, havde booket værelset til weekenden efter. Flot! Jeg var godt træt efter et par påskefrokoster, så første eftermiddag blev brugt på værelset. Fin indretning og fri internet, gjorde aftenen en del nemmere. Jeg måtte dog lede længe efter minibaren, da aftensulten meldte sig. Minibaren er ikke på værelset, men i receptionen, hvilket gør at man lige tænker to gange når sukkerlysten melder sig. Måske en win win, men alligevel en smule trættende.

Lørdag morgen og jeg var klar til at tage jerngreb om Aarhus. Jeg havde allieret mig med en god lokal kammerat, som havde indvilliget i at agere tourguide. I øvrigt tak til de mange tips via Facebook. Vi slog forbi et par sneakershops, herunder Chapter Shoe, og den meget hyggelige halvhemmelige kaffebar, Great Coffee, frokost på Juliette, inden det allervigtigste, og det jeg havde set mest frem til, skulle erobres, Aros.

Mange vil nok påstå, at jeg ikke er den mest kulturelle, men alligevel nød jeg udstillingerne, især de 9 rum i kælderen. Sjovest er dog spejlrummet, hvor man får fornemmelsen af uendelighed. Tre særudstillinger pryder desuden væggene i Danmarks næstmest besøgte museum. Kanonen, Shooting into the Corner af Anish Kapoor, der hver halve time, skyder rødt voks udover en væg, skal jeg ikke gør mig klog på, men Årets Pressefotos var helt sikkert hele besøget værd!

When Easter is knocking on the door, and you need a quick get away, you take the train to Aarhus! Many Copenhageners probably would not admit it, but nevertheless, I have enjoyed 24 hours in Aarhus over the weekend. Shops, coffee shops, a museum and newly opened hotel was on the to-do list.

A quick walk from the station and I was standing in the foyer of Scandic Aarhus City. The check-in went smoothly, although my blogger brain had booked the room for the weekend after. Beautiful! I was very tired after a couple of Easter lunches, so my first afternoon was spent in the room. Fine furnishings and free internet, made ​​the evening a lot easier. However, I had to look far for the minibar, as my evening hungry came crawling. The mini bar is not in the room, but by the front desk, which means you think twice when ones sugar craving kicks in. Maybe a win win, but still a bit tiring.

Saturday morning and I was ready to take an iron grip on Aarhus. Allied with a good local friend who had agreed to act as tour guide. Also, thanks to the many tips via Facebook. We went past a few sneaker shops, including Chapter Shoe, a very cozy semi-secret coffee shop, Great Coffee, lunch at Juliette, before the most important thing, the one thing I had looked forward to the most, Aros.

Many would probably agree, I am not the most cultural person alive, yet I enjoyed the exhibitions, especially the 9 rooms in the basement. Funniest is the mirrored room where you really get the feeling of infinity. Three special exhibitions can also be seen these days at Denmark’s second most visited museum. The cannon, Shooting into the Corner by Anish Kapoor, shoots red clays into a wall every half hour, is to strange for me, but the Danish Press Photo of the Year was definitely all worth the visit!

    Det var et meget kort visit, men du sad da alligevel ikke på den lade side. Hvilke museums besøgte du?
