This past Sunday I grabbed my camera and jumped on my longbord and went exploring Aarhus.
I’ve been to Aarhus a lot throughout my life since most of my family lives here. Yet I’ve never really explored Aarhus. I’ve mostly just visited family when here. So since I moved here I thought I should get to know the city better. Also it gave me an excuse to longbord and take pictures which is always fun!
I wasn’t sure how to sort these photos for you so I’ve arranged them into categories.
The classic city
Aarhus, like any other big city has buildings and areas form any given time in history. So I’ve collected the pictures that I would categorize as classic danish city for you here. Most of them are from the ø-gade neighborhood.
I went by two churches on my trip (that I noticed) this was the first one. I don’t remember the name.
This next picture is a detail picture of the other church, which I think was the prettier of the two. I’m trying to notice like details of building that I like since I started school. Here I really like the contrast between both colour and material.
In this picture I fell completely in love with this old school sign.
Godsbanen is an area of Aarhus that I’ve heard much about but hadn’t ever visited. So when I found myself in the area I had to stop by. AND I LOVE IT! The vibe is so creative and interesting. As the pictures shows there is a lot of street art, some skate ramps, container and interesting constructions that almost look like they were build at my school.
The urban nature
I love to capture flowers. I think they are so forgiving and easy to capture beautifully. On my way back I noticed all of these flowers in the middle of the city.
All in all I think the trip was succesful. Going on the longboard made me actually see what is around me. For me at least it is slower than biking and I have time to spot the interesting parts of the city.
Are any of you from the Aarhus area? If so what is your favorite spot?
