Ærø Guide 2017


Welcome to our island No matter where you come from when you reach the shores of Ærø, you will find, even before the ferry is alongside, that Ærø has everything a holidaymaker requires. You look at a hilly landscape, hilly for any cyclist to be sufficiently challenged, but also rewarded with the most stunning views for every hill conquered; you look at a varied coastline that changes between child-friendly sandy beaches, dunes and high cliffs with vertical slopes down to the sea. You look at welcoming towns of very different characters, busy Marstal with the lively harbour, romantic Ærøskøbing where your walk around 100 years back in time, and charming Søby with the island's biggest workplace, the yard Søby Værft. If you wish to spend a few days on Ærø, you can find accommodation to your own taste, and wallet, from exclusive romance to a rustic B&B, all with their own atmosphere and most of them overlooking the Baltic or the Archipelago. Ærø is ideal for hiking, perhaps only a few kilometres through beautiful nature to a romantic place for lunch, perhaps a challenge such as the 36 km long Archipelago Trail that begins in Søby and ends in Marstal; whatever you choose, views, peace and idyll will abound. If you wish to spoil yourself in the evening with culinary treats, a

visit to one of the many eating venues will please your taste buds, exquisite food being served with care and insight. Afterwards take a walk in the quiet streets of night where no noise from traffic will disturb and you may meet only a few couples taking a romantic stroll like yourselves. All of this will best be experienced in the season where Ærø will fill with merry holiday makers and all localities are open and welcome you. If you are fortunate to spend your holidays outside the hectic summer months, come to Ærø to enjoy the peace and quiet and the nearness. We can guarantee you clear and clean air, a starry sky you will never forget, time for contemplation and peace in your soul, an unknown boredom that will recharge your body's batteries; waking up without knowing the time and still have your breakfast served. Here you can read the best books, enjoy a concert in the church or merely exist as a person or a couple, newly in love or in need of a fresh start to your everyday life. At all times of year, Ærø is there for you, an island you will not let go of right away; be prepared for the risk of coming back time and again. Perhaps you will be one of the 800 families who already have a holiday house on Ærø. We, the residents on Ærø, welcome you with open arms and a warm heart.

Ærø – a brief description Ærø is an island of its own in the South Funen Archipelago which cannot be reached by any bridges. Ærø has a surface of 90 square kilometres and a length of 30 km, with its broadest extension being 9 km. The towns of Marstal and Ærøskøbing are home to a major part of the islanders, numbering just under 6.300. Others live in Søby or in the small villages scattered across the island. It is easy to come to Ærø as the island has 3 different ferry links. Coming from Germany and southern Denmark you can take the ferry from Fynshav on the island of Als to get to Søby. From Funen there are ferries from Fåborg to Søby as well as from Svendborg to Ærøskøbing. The crossing takes place by modern car ferries with cafeterias on board. From Svendborg the crossing takes 75 minutes and from Fynshav 70 minutes. From Faaborg the crossing time is one hour.

Marstal

– maritime traditions Marstal is the largest town on Ærø, and its long maritime history is reflected ­everywhere. For centuries, Marstal vessels have sailed the seven seas and today a few Marstal coasters still show the flag in ports around the world. Shipping is still the nerve of the town with its dockyards, its shipping companies and its nautical school which for more than a century has trained navigators for the Danish merchant fleet. Marstal is a charming town with narrow

alleys and passages. Its many stores, restaurants, and cafés all invite their guests to enjoy life. Along the harbour is a charming collection of skiffs, fishing nets, coasters, and yachts. The impressive pier with the eyecatching lime kiln provides shelter from easterly winds and was purposebuilt by the town’s seamen during the period from 1825 to 1841 and subsequently extended a couple of times. Marstal Maritime Museum gives a lively

impression of the town’s seafaring history. You should also visit the beautiful church from 1738. The camping site, the youth hostel and the hotels provide accommodation for the many visitors. Eriks Hale, the strip that jots into the sea south of the town, has a very fine beach for swimming and bathing, and while there you can enjoy the picturesque little huts and the open sea. 

Frederiksøen In Marstal Harbour is an island ­Frederiksøen, which today is called the Lime Kiln (Kalkovnen). In 1825, local citizens and seamen started on a voluntary basis to build the impressive boulder pier at the island. The island was in use as a repair yard for ships, until in 1863 it was rented out for lime burning.

Ærøskøbing

- the fairytale town

Located half way up the northern coast of Ærø is Ærøskøbing – the most wellpreserved town of the 18th century in Denmark. The town dates back to the early Middle Ages and recently celebrated its 750-year jubilee. Many of its houses are unconditionally preserved and the town as a whole is subject to a preservation planning with strict guidelines for the development of the town and for the construction of new houses and renovation of old ones. The museums tell the story of Ærøskøbing and centuries as a market town where shipping and trade were the main activities in addition to hinterland farming. Ærøskøbing Church at the market square is the third church on that location and on the square are the two old town pumps that supplied the town with water right up till 1952. The old harbour has been enlarged by a new marina and the beach at Vesterstrand with its colourful little beach huts is only a few minutes’ walk from the town and the harbour. For the many visitors to the town, fine overnight accommodation is offered by the camping site, the youth hostel, guest houses, and hotels. Ærøskøbing is a perfect idyll with its cobbled streets, hollyhocks, and the small, wellpreserved houses with their many peculiar details. Danish as well as foreign guidebooks describe the town as the FairyTale Town. Don’t forget though, that behind the idyllic

8

Ærø Guide 2017

facade of the town is a live and active town that has solved successive generations’ housing needs for centuries. The town’s development has been rational and gradual, governed by natural conditions – what we would refer to today as sustainable. Just the way all other towns in the country ­developed. But Ærøskøbing remains the only original one. In 2002, Ærøskøbing was awarded the prestigious Europa Nostra prize for the preservation of European Cultural Heritage. At the Tourist Office you can get a small folder which will guide you around in the town and tell you the history of many of the notable buildings. In 2013, Ærøskøbing was also awarded the Brown Johannes Cross (the Danish place of interest sign), a nation­al award instituted by the Danish Nature Agency, The Danish Cultural Heritage Agency and VisitDenmark. The award is granted to sites of national significance, and out of approximately 200 Danish sites, as many as

two are located on Ærø. In addition to Ærøskøbing, Voderup Klint can also grace itself with the Brown Johannes Cross. It is worth noticing that the Europa Nostra­ Prize was awarded not because of the conservation standard of the town as such, but for the initiative taken by Ærøskøbing’s inhabitants to preserve the town. The town of Ærøskøbing demonstrates the truly democrat­ic initiative taken by the town’s inhabitants to retain intact an urban landscape dating from the Middle Ages, as the committee stated when awarding the prize. The town can be seen as a monument of the past, but at the same time it is a significant model for presentday residential housing because it is an expression of the accumulated experience of generations on knowledge of housing and town planning.

The cooking house Because of the great respect for risk of fire and based on a resolution from 1787 banning the use of open fire on board wooden ships, cooking houses were erected on the harbours. In 1810, »die Brückenkasse« paid for such a cooking house on Ærøskøbing harbour at the end of the tall ship pier. To ensure its maintenance, visiting ships had to pay for the use of the house. The original function of the cooking house was discontinued around 1860. From then on, the fishermen used it for boiling pitch for their yarns. In the 1850s the house was provided with a dormer where a small harbour and leading light was lit to guide ships safely into Ærøskøbing harbour. Today the cooking house again fulfils part of its old function as it is now used as a barbeque hut.

Søby

– playground of opportunities Ærø is not a big island. But you will astound to find how much room the island has for ­everyone – also during the peak season when the island is full of visitors from all sorts of places. The feeling of space is found particularly on the north-western part of the island where Søby is the centre – surrounded by some of Ærø's most spectacular nature. And Søby has long ago taken up the position as a versatile place for active holidays. Søby is Ærø's gate to Europe. From here two ferry routes operate; to Fynshav on Als and Faaborg on Funen, respectively. This is the home of Ærø's fishing fleet. And here stands the biggest workplace is the island, Søby Shipyard, which creates life and activities in the small town. The turning point in Søby is the harbour that greets visitors from the sea welcome with her two beautiful and characteristic lighthouses. You may also enjoy the sight of young couples in love on the harbour. For here is the ferry Skjoldnæs which carries most wedding couples to and from the wedding island of Ærø. Yachtsmen can delight in a modern marina with great views of the archipelago. Søby Marina is both well operated and charming with all facilities, and not least with a beautiful and cozy barbecue area with benches and cooking house – do avail yourself of the flower pot with fresh herbs for your own barbecue meal. In the town you will find a bakery and café, with bread and cakes made through and through of good ingredients. Dagli’ Brugsen (Co-op) is the heart of town with long opening hours and a large selection of locally produced goods, staple goods and fine bargains. Søby also offers bicycle rental, wine bar, holiday flats, B&Bs, furniture store and café overlooking the busy environment of the harbour. At the top of the hill, Søby Windmill towers; the landmark of the town. Enjoy the experience of the classical windmill culture from 1881. Søby offers lovely summer memories for child families and presents a challenging playground on the harbour, a centrally located mini golf course and a beach with

clear water, sandy bottom and a bathing jetty. The Søby surroundings offer small roads of limited traffic that lead to idyllic villages, charming farm shops, interesting sights and great vantage points. Right outside the town sign is Sæberiet, the soap workshop with the aromatic shop and a wonderful garden with sea view. Here children can make their own fragrant soap during the season. A fine tour–whether by car, bicycle or on Shank's mare–leads to Vester Mølle which stands in a pastoral idyll only a few kilometres from Søby. A few kilometres further on you will find yourself at Søby Volde, the ramparts located next to the ’castle’, Søbygaard Manor House. At Skjoldnæs, golfers can enjoy playing one of Northern Europe's most attractive seaside golf courses, located on the westernmost point of the island surrounded by water on nearly all sides. The old lighthouse, which is still sending out its flashes over the sea at night, is the spectacular club house. For anglers the area is a genuine eldorado. Nowhere else do you find prettier cost stretches and the Skjoldnæs bottom conditions make the tip of Ærø an exquisite angling point. Here chances are indeed present of catching record-breaking sea trout. And hardly anything compares with a sunrise at the tip called »Næbbet«. Cyclists can anticipate challenges in the area around Søby and this is the reason why most genuine cycling enthusiasts choose to battle the alps of Ærø. This is the spot to visit if you are looking for challenges. Several areas here will break a sweat, even on experienced cyclists. Søby is also the platform for wonderful experiences in nature for hikers. Immediately on the outskirts of the town is Laaddenbjerg Plantation that borders the large and very special nature area of Vitsø Nor and Vitsø Sø (cove and lake): Walk around the lake and enjoy the unique birdlife that is among the richest in Denmark. Vitsø Mølle is an old photogenic windmill surrounded by pure nature and bird life. Pick up a map of the area from one of the tourist offices on the island.

Søby Camping – the eatable camping site Søby Camping, the small charming cam­ping site, is located right at the Baltic and if you arrive by kayak, you may stay at the sea kayak pier. In 2016, the camping site began a new concept of the »eatable camping site«, which means that the manageress grows vegetables, herbs and eatable flowers that are available to guests free of charge. She is also ready to talk about organics, bees and seed collection, and she often takes interested children and adults into the field to reap form the profusion in the vicinity. There is a production of elderflower juice, rosehip jam, bramble jam and other delicacies for the great enjoyment of the guests. Vitsøhus – a garden for the future A garden of paradise for the soul – a productive garden for life »The eatable garden« is designed on the basis of the ethical principles of the permaculture: Earthcare, People/Creature Care, Fair Share. Permaculture–the synonym of permanent agriculture–goes even further than organics. You may have unique experiences of nature in the meditative garden which offers more than 400 interesting species of trees, bushes and herbs, over 150 different roses, peaceful and gracious alpacas, aristocratic Indian runner ducks, the »King Henry« cock and his beautiful hens – an abundant experience of scent, a nature paradise of biodiversity – an homage to nature! The world's only permaculture-audio-tour will open the beginner's eyes to perma­ culture and convey interesting detail to advanced visitors. At Vitsøhus, we live and work with the multi-functionality of the permaculture in the nearly waste-free sustainable cycle that works with and not against nature. The dishes in the café (»Clean Eating«, vegetarian and vegan) and the produce of the shop are mainly local / organic / from our own farm. We also offer sound massage, sound meditation and herbal safari. An exciting Segway tour in nature rounds off the versatile offer. Ærø Guide 2017

The villages

on Ærø

Ærø’s villages are laid out like pearls on a string along the main road. Drive through the village roads and enjoy the undisturbed idyll. Cows, horses and sheep are grazing the fertile fields whose banks and hedgerows encircle the small wellkept houses and farms. Gardens with flowers and fruit trees adjoin the village road and in the pond, ducks and other animals are thriving. Bregninge, Tranderup, Rise and Ommel all have their own beautiful churches of which Bregninge Church is the only »vejkirke« (wayfarers’ church) on Ærø and offers tours of the church all summer. Bregninge is also characterised by being

12

Ærø Guide 2017

the second longest village in Denmark, and it has a collection of little recreational gems. Several artists for instance have settled in the village with galleries and open workshops with ceramics and jewellery. Bregninge also has a big farm shop with a difference which is open all year round. ­Furthermore, there are primitive camping sites for tents near the beach and the ­possibility of riding for tourists. In 2010, Bregninge was nominated the first »Blomstrende Landsby« (Flowering Village) in Denmark by the joint council »Landdistrikternes Fællesråd«. If you follow the Archipelago Trail from

Søby or Ærøskøbing, you will end up at a junction at Vester Bregningemark where Ærø Nature Reserve is situated in one of Ærø’s most beautiful sceneries. Dunkær and Ommel have attractive, cosy inns. The many villages have their own unspoiled idyll and, in addition to that, Skovby also has its own ­attraction, i.e. the Skovby Stone. The stone is believed to originate from between 1100 and 1400 and was found in 1994. It is now situated in »The Green Triangle« at the approach to the village. The village of Ommel has two cosy harbours – Kleven and Strandbyen – both atmospheric, local harbours with small boats.


Beautiful Ærø

for all seasons

Nature in Ærø is unique. The combination of soft beach lines towards the inner waters south of Funen and the rather more rough coastlines towards the Baltic is unsurpassed – nature has a new opening every day. Climate Danes call the South Funen Archipelago the South Sea Islands, and not without reason. The climate there is remarkably mild. Ærø is one of the places in Denmark with the highest number of sunshine hours in the year. In fact it is not unusual on Ærø to find plants in people’s gardens that normally would not be able to survive in Denmark. Anyone going for a walk, for instance along the Molestien in Ærøskøbing, will certainly be able to see tropical plants and flowers growing in gardens round the town, and ­observe that even normal garden plants grow extra large and flourish unusually well. Spring Spring comes very suddenly to Ærø. The ­flowers seem to explode into bloom and the island breaks out into a colourful symphony of blossoming bushes and fruit trees be­ tween green fields and surrounded by blue

sea. The island seems to wake out of hibernation. Shops, cafés and restaurants open for the season as the first yachts and big wooden ships sail into the harbours. Summer Summer is naturally the liveliest season. Hollyhocks add colour to the old houses. It is festival time, so the towns and harbours hum with people and music. Galleries and farm shops open, and cyclists can be seen everywhere exploring the island on

two wheels. The bathing huts are always ­occupied, and the beaches are full of life. Yet Ærø would not be Ærø if it was not always possible to find a peaceful nook somewhere on the island, and the many visitors do not really disturb its characteristic calm. Autumn At the end of September Ærø becomes quiet again. Often it is still possible to enjoy warm days in the garden and even go for a dip in the sea. The leaves change colour and fruit hangs heavily on the apple trees. The countryside seems to urge you to take long walks through fields and by the sea, and the whole island seems to ease up as everyone relaxes! Winter Surrounded by sea that has warmed up through the summer, winter comes very late. The towns are decorated for Christ­ mas and there are Christmas markets everywhere, as well as concerts and other festive activities. The streets are alive again, and people meet to drink ‘gløgg’ or Christmas punch, eat Danish doughnuts, do their shopping and enjoy the Christmas lights that make Ærø extra special.

Churches

on Ærø

Ærø has seven churches, each with its own character. The maritime touch is clearly seen in several of the churches. Rise Church is the oldest one with a history dating back to the 12th century. In several of the churches, the old fresco paintings are uncovered, and here you stand face to face with church art and religion perception of ancient times. Characteristic of Rise, Tranderup and Breg­ ninge churches are the circular churchyards. – Please see the separate folder about churches. Marstal Church Carillon Even though you can't see the bells, it is definitely the church that sings, a little girl said one day about the carillon of Marstal Church, and there is indeed something about that, for the carillon plays every day at 9am, at noon and at 3pm in the winter and in summer also at 5pm. It is a cosy contribution to the sounds of the town and many

Opening hours for the Ærø churches (Evangelical Lutheran churches) MARSTAL CHURCH: 1 April –1 November from toll of morning bell to toll of evening bell.

people stop to listen whether they re­cognise the tune. The church has had a minor carillon since 1987, but only in November 2012 a complete carillon with 48 bells was inaugurated thanks to a large donation from the A. P. Møller Foundation. The new carillon consists of 34 new bells and a stick-like keyboard that enables the performer to play manually on the carillon. It is quite natural that Marstal has such a carillon, because throughout history the seafaring towns often had such a town-instrument. The church stands in the middle of the town so everyone may enjoy the music and if you feel like a quiet place to listen to the music, you should visit the old churchyard where the old headstones are well worth a visit.

Saint Albert’s Church Near Vejsnæs are the relics of St. Albert’s Church (originally built as a fortification). The reconstruction measures 60 by 30 metres and consists of a 3-metre deep moat and a strong defence rampart. The dating is presumed to go back to the Vikings around the year 1000. During the 14th century, the construction was changed and a significant church was built on the site. Fifty graves, of which approximately half were children’s graves, have been uncovered around the church. Other findings include a large number of coins from the time when the church was in use, from the mid-14th century until the Reformation in 1536. At that time, the church was closed and eventually eroded. – A book is for sale at Ærø Museum.

Ærø – The Wedding Island Romance is flourishing on Ærø. Each year, over 3000 couples say »I do« on Ærø. The weddings take place all over the island, so you are more than likely to enjoy a wedding without being invited when you visit Ærø. The romantic idyll and charm of the island makes it an obvious place for a wedding and the registrars on Ærø are willing to leave the town hall and wed couples in the Ærø nature – on land, at sea or in the air. The many weddings add to the very unique atmosphere on the island and should you not run into a wedding at the lighthouse Skjoldnæs Fyr, at the beaches Vestre Strand in Ærøskøbing or Eriks Hale in Marstal, you are almost

guaranteed to meet happy newly-weds in the towns. The many weddings are a success story and they contribute to keeping the wheels of the island turning – also in idle periods of the year. The story of Ærø, the wedding island, has been related in several international media, and Da­nish television broadcast a series of programmes in the autumn of 2015 called »Business on the Wedding Island«. A vast part of the couples are foreign, several couples have different nationalities and many LBGT couples have also chosen to get married on Ærø. Some couples arrive on their own, others bring along their wedding party and combine their wedding reception and holiday on the island. All of this

contributes to creating a great variation and the island has a number of wedding bureaus who are ready to assist the couples with everything from the paper work to the boutonnière and the wedding cake to ensure that every couple gets precisely the wedding they wish for. At visitaeroe.dk you will find further information around weddings on Ærø.

Ærø Guide 2017

Skjoldnæs lighthouse and »Næbbet« At the north-westernmost point of Ærø you will find one of the finest lighthouses in Denmark, Skjoldnæs lighthouse. The 22-meter tall round tower of granite was erected in 1881. 57 narrow steps, also in granite, lead to the guard room. The lantern, the heart of the lighthouse, is exceptionally well preserved and in full working order. From the outside platform, on a clear day, you have great views of the western part of the Baltic, the southern part of the Little Belt and many of the little islands in the Archipelago. Looking toward the south you might distinguish the German coastline. In the west is the island of Als, in the north Lyø, Bjørnø and Avernakø as well as Faaborg, and rising behind the town is the hilly area called Svanninge Bakker. The lighthouse on Ærø turned out to be one of the most impressive lighthouses of Denmark. After the defeat against the Prussians

in 1864, Denmark lost a major part of land in Northern Germany and Southern Jutland. The story goes that people wished to build a powerful lighthouse that should be visible as far away as in Kiel as a greeting to the lost country. The lighthouse can be visited from sunrise to sunset for a small fee. Around the lighthouse a golf course has been laid out, which has become one of the most beautifully located seaside courses in Northern Europe. Nature around Skjoldnæs is very interes­t­ ing. In particular »Næbbet« (the beak), a promontory which stretches 300m into the Archipelago. From a biological point of view it is the most significant area of Ærø as far as bird life and vegetation are concerned with a highly recreational value as well. »Næbbet« is also known to be the anglers’ Eldorado in the South-of-Funen Archipelago. »Næbbet« consists of glacial sediments, sand and gravel. The landscape remained pristine until c. 1890 when the construction


of the Kiel Canal began. This started the extraction of mineral resources from »Næbbet« and after the Second World War buil­d­ ing material was also needed to rebuild the cities in Northern Germany. Within a short period of time huge excavators and building machinery would change »Næbbet« into a barren lunar landscape with craters that filled with water. Not until 1975 was gravel extraction finally prohibited. This led to the creation of new biotopes for many types of birds. Coots, swans, ducks and waders rest here, find food and brood in growing numbers. You can also observe large flocks of cormorants, which might be standing, with their wings spread out, letting their plumage dry by wind and sun. Little terns have bred at Næbbet, but have not been seen lately. The vegetation at »Næbbet« is characterised by the saline soil and consists mostly of different kinds of grass, sedges and reed. Along the beach ridges, large groups of genuine seakale grow and further away from the sea large areas are covered with butterbur (red butterbur). Typical beach plants like sea rocket, sea purslane, sea blite, sea radish and orache grow across the entire costal strip. Shrubs and dwarf trees such as willow and hawthorn grown along the slopes and now cover up part of the damaged nature. Also reed and bulrushes grow in the waterholes. The fortress at Søbygård The impressive fortress at Søbygaard was

erected by King Niels during the period 1110-1134 as a defence against the Wends and was abolished 1250-1275. The defences were ideally situated, with a fine prospect over the sea and the surrounding areas. In 1788, the first attempt to reclaim land was made. A bank of earth was built all around Vitsø, and a canal was dug on the outside of the bank. The canal would take the surface water from the surrounding terrain and lead it directly into the sea. It was one of the first reclamations in Denmark and an area of nearly 11 hectares was reclaimed. In 1805, in his book »Oeconomiske Annaler« Begstrup writes: »For many years, man has, with little success, attempted to dry out Vitsø. Things are now progressing, around 22 hectares of land is now reclaimed and some of it is now ploughland«. During the years 1868-69, a dike was built along the coast with a core of clay and in 1871 Vitsø had become dry land. The following year, all work was destroyed as a surge broke through the dike and reflooded everything. It was not until 1964 that efficient draining was made. Many rare meadow plants disappeared when the land was cultivated, and as it was no longer grazed by cattle, new vegetation took over. Vitsø was originally an inlet with salt ­meadows on the edges which were directly connected with the sea. In the soil are shells which disclose that this was once the seabed. Over time, the sea currents deposited a major beach ridge system

along the coast, and eventually the inlet became a lake. Gravel and boulders from the beach ridge were used for road building and construction. After the installation in 1964 of an electric pump, it became possible to drain off the area to such an extent that the soil could be cultivated. In 2009, a large combined 150-hectare nature area was established with a new lake of approx. 52 hectares, surrounded by salt marshes and fresh-water meadows. Three bird islands have been established in the lake to protect breeding birds from predators. The majority of the area is owned by Aage V. Jensen's ­Nature Foundation and it is a preserved area. From the parking lot at Søbygaard and the parking lot at Vorbjerg Skov, which is owned by the National Forest and Nature Agency, you can follow the hiking paths around the lake. Some of the paths form part of the combined system of paths, the Archipelago Trail, which is clearly marked with blue signs on wooden posts. Voderup Klint, a national attraction One of the most obvious places to visit on Ærø is Voderup Klint, on the Baltic coast. An outstanding landscape opens up on you when you step out on the 33-metre tall upper terrace, where one terrace comes after the other nearly all the way down to the beach. The cliff consists of many sliding terraces, some over a hundred metres long, which like giant steps connect the sea and the island.

Ærø Guide 2017

The slipping of the earth into terraces is caused by the layers forming the cliffs. From the beach at the foot of the cliff you can see the layers of clay deposited during the last interglacial period. The clay is so fine and plastic that water will not penetrate it. Above the clay, a gigantic layer of sand was deposited at the end of the last ice age. If precipitation is heavy for a period of several years running, this 30-metre thick sand layer becomes so heavy that the clay on which it rests will act like gliding planes for the layers above. With a gap of several years it can happen that big blocks of landscape of up to several hundred metres quietly slide down towards the sea in one calm movement. And it is this combination of layers of soil that has created a landscape in a class of its own and made Voderup Klint a national attraction. The fact that Ærø is surrounded by the sea and is one of the most southerly locations in Denmark – and therefore has a few more sunny hours – means that the average temperature here is slightly above that of the rest of the country. On top of that, the orientation of the cliff is to the south. This gives the spot the optimal conditions for rich and varied flora and fauna. Voderup Klint is protected and Voderup as a whole is dedicated to be an internationally special area of conservation under the Natura 2000 network. For instance you may be fortunate to hear the croaking of the fire-bellied toad in the months of May and July, when also the protected may orchid is doing well in the wetlands found in the area. Pack yourself a picnic basket and take a walk along one of the terraces. Or choose the hours before sunset when the sea is like a silver mirror. You will only have to walk a short distance before you have a spot entirely to

yourself. And don't forget that you are walking in some of the most beautiful areas in Denmark that most certainly should not be missed. Visit the cliff on your own or take the opportunity of a guided tour. See the programme in the Calendar of Events. Gråsten Nor – a goal to visit Until 1856, Ærø was in fact two islands connected by a three-meter high stone bar, the socalled ‘Drej’ (an old Danish word for isthmus). Between the two islands, West-Ærø and Little-Ærø, was a vast shallow water, Gråsten Nor, named after the big ducal estate located at the western end of Drejet. In 1856 a dike was built between the two islands at the northern side of the shallow between Kragnæs and Grønnæs. In charge of the pro­ ject was the island’s doctor, Dr. Biering, and by means of two windmill pumps the entire area was reclaimed within 24 years. The intention was to turn the new reclaimed land into pastures and fields, and the result was just under 1000 acres of new farm land. Particularly hay harvest and grazing became important to the farmers and these are still the main functions of the area, which is the largest coherent meadowland in the area of Funen. Gråsten Nor is well worth a visit for people interested in nature. The range meadows offer a large number of animals and plants of great diversity according to the time of year of your visit. In winter the small ponds and the sea constitute a sanctuary for many Danish species of duck. With spring and the breeding season, several of them remain in the area. This is also the time for a variation of waders to visit on their way up north, and the area is one of their important foraging spots. Some of them stay through summer.

Gråsten Nor

Birkholm The island of Birkholm is situated in the middle of the archipelago south of Funen. The island is just 96 hectares (less than 250 acres) and is extreme­ly flat. The highest elevation on Birkholm is a mere 1.8 metre above sea level. The island has beautiful old farm­ houses, lovely beaches and ample opportunities for fishing. Of all the inhabited Danish islands, Birkholm is the smallest. Birkholm is part of the municipality of Ærø. To visit the island, there is a postboat leaving Marstal twice a day. On account of the dikes as well as the game, visitors are reque­sted to keep to the roads and the foot­paths, and dogs should be kept on a leash. For schedule and more info, please see www.birkholm-beboerforening.dk

This applies to species such as lapwing and oyster catcher, but also curlew is a frequent visitor. In some years, you may also be fortunate enough in the early hours of the morning to hear the small gallinacean, the corncrake, in the wide pastures. In spring and early summer along the rim of the Shallow you may experience a concert of twittering and warbling songbirds in thickets, hedgerows and wood lots. Profusion is the word. Birds of prey include the kestrel which has a nesting box on the airport hangar, the common buzzard and from time to time also the marsh harrier come to visit the area. Among the plants, the beautiful and pro-

tected may orchid is perhaps the most conspicuous one. It is found in many spots in the area, but particularly in a meadow between Norvejen and the small wood Drej­skoven it is abundant. In just one hectare, there is a stand of more than 75,000 may orchids in bloom, – probably the largest combined stand of the little flower. It is in bloom during the last two weeks of May. Another rare plant is the field gentian that is threatened with extinction. A little delicate flower that grows near the parking lot at the airfield. It is covered by international protection of nature regulations, but that does not mean that you cannot enjoy its looks or take a photo of it. It is in bloom as late as from mid-

August till the end of September. Incidentally, the area around the airfield parking lot is indeed very rich in species. Inside an area of 50 x 50m you may find more than 20 different grasses, and you may find eyebright, centaury, mountain flax, rough hawkbit, red eyebright, strawberry clover, ragged robin and many other. In Gråsten Nor there is a marked-out trail of approx. 8 km. You do not necessarily have to walk the entire trail; there are several star­t­ ing points. Many people start at the airfield, others at the parking lot (the one with the toilet building) at Drejet. This is also where you will find infostands and a yellow box with information folders on the trail.

The antiquity of Ærø Relics of antiquity are found all over the island. Burial mounds, passage graves, and dolmens bear witness of human ­activity through more than 10,000 years In the new history, especially the period of the duchies is of interest. During this period – from the 14th century to the year 1864 – Ærø was united and separated, alternately, in a number of enclaves. Ærø was outside the tariff wall

of the Kingdom, leading to flourishing smuggling which was a way of living for many of Ærø’s inhabitants. In 1750 Ærø was united, and has not ever since been separated. This is ­marked by the memorial stone at Olde mill. At the union, the old Jutland Law from 1241 was applied and even today some of those rules are still valid. In recent history, the fight for survival as an outskirt area is the most important element. The solidarity between the inhabitants of Ærø was clearly shown in the year 2000, as a movement among the inhabitants saved Marstal Maritime School from closing down.

Sustainable

Energy Island

Ærø Municipality has adopted the objective that by 2025 the island must be self-sufficient with sustainable energy and be CO2 neutral. Today the island has now reached a point where it is considered one of the leading renewable-energy islands in the world. District heating based on sun and biomass The island has just under 7 square metres of sun collectors per inhabitant to cover part of the district heating consumption. This is probably a world record. The remainder of district hearing comes from wood and straw which is CO2 free. The solar heating plant of Marstal District Heating is among the largest in Denmark with a total solar panel area of 33,365 square metres. The solar heating plant covers approx. 55 per cent of the district heating requirement in Marstal, Ommel and Græsvænge. This is possible, because in summer the sun heats up the water in three hot-water storages that are used once the heating season starts in the autumn. The hot-water storages comprise a steel tank of 2,100 cubic metres, a pit heat storage of 75,000 cubic metres. Where the heating requirement cannot not be covered by the sun, a 4 MW wood chip boiler and a 1.5 MW CO2 heat pump will supplement the requirement. Ærøskøbing District Heating is based on 100 per cent sustainable energy sources. The solar heating plant is 7,000 square metres and can cover around 23 per cent of the district heating requirement in Ærøskøbing. The remaining heating supply is produced by a straw boiler (3.2 MV) and a wood pellet boiler (800 KW). 20 Ærø Guide 2017

Rise District Heating is a fully automatic plant based on 100 per cent sustainable energy sources. The solar heating plant is 3,600 square metres and with a steel storage of 4,000 cubic metres it covers 50 per cent of the district heating requirement. The remaining heat is produced by a wood pellet boiler (800 KW). Self-sufficient in wind turbine power Since the 1980s, wind turbines have had a central place in the utilisation of renewable energy sources on Ærø. As early as 1985, the then biggest wind turbine park in Denmark was established on Ærø where 11 turbines of 55 KW each were erected at Rise Mark. These turbines along with six older turbines were taken down in 2002, when they were replaced by three big 2 MW turbines. In 2011, three additional turbines each of 2 MW were erected, and today the six big wind turbines produce more power on an annual basis than what is used on Ærø. It is a distinguishing feature of the Ærø wind turbines that they are owned and operated by local wind turbine guilds. The turbines are owned by around 650 local shareholders, which means that just under 10 per cent of the island's population are co-owners. Electric Ferry Ærø Municipality and a wide range of local and European partners have received an EU contribution for an E-ferry project. From the summer of 2017 the crossing between Søby Ærø and Fynshav on Als will be operated by a 100% electrically powered ferry.

Lake-source heating system at Søbygaard The moat and the lake at the manor house Søbygaard has being re-established and in that connection a lake-source heating system has been installed so that some of the buildings can be heated by means of energy-efficient heat pumps. In the summer of 2014, before the water level began rising, 7.2km pipes were placed on the ground which is now the bottom of the lake. The system acts like a terrestrial heating plant, but this is more efficient because it can collect energy from the warm lake water. Awards and recognition The initiatives have won the island a number of awards and recognition. In 2000, the island received the honorary award as Denmark's Sun City. In 2001, the island won the international award, Energy Globe 2001, and the EU award for sustainable societies, Best Renewable Energy Partnership in Isolated Communities. Ærø is selected as a pioneer municipality for a green super pool in 20142015 under the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building. Information and energy bicycle route For the purpose of developing the island as a sustainable energy island, the Municipality has a Committee for Sustainable Energy. At the Tourist Office and elsewhere a free folder »On the way to 100%« is available showing where you can ride your bicycle and see the sustainable energy plants of the island for yourself. Welcome and enjoy your ride!


The ramblers’ island in the South-of-Funen Archipelago

If you want to have an active holiday with lots of exercise and fresh air in beautiful surroundings and with fantastic views of the South-of-Funen Archipelago and the Baltic Sea, then Ærø is it. The island is big enough and sufficiently varied to provide even choosy ramblers with challenges, and small enough to be covered by foot in just under a week. However, if you only have the possibility of using your walking boots for a day or a few hours, there are countless possibilities. Below you will find some examples of what Ærø offers visiting ramblers: Coastal Trail (Kyststien) At the southern side of Ærø along the coast is the »Coastal Trail«, its 30km mainly follows bicycle route 91. The trail is not yet marked but can be seen on the tourist map of Ærø. From the trail you can take a trip to the coast and to Voderup Klint Øhavsstien – The Archipelago Trail The 200 km long Archipelago Trail starts in Søby on Ærø and finishes in Falsled in SouthWest Funen. The Trail encircles the beautiful South-of-Funen Archipelago. Ærø offers 36 magnificent kilometres of this nature Trail. On Ærø, the Trail starts in Søby, goes through Vistø Nor and continues past the historic ramparts near Søbygaard. From there, the Trail goes through a rolling terrain through the beautiful area near Ærø Nature Reserve and continues via Borgnæs

to the idyllic Ærøskøbing. From Ærøskøbing, the Trail continues along the sea for quite a while before winding its way over the hills to Stokkeby and from there along historic paths to Lille Rise, down through the bog and on to Gråsten Nor. The last part of the walk goes through Kragnæs and continues along the old church path past Ommel Church and finishes in the mariners’ town of Marstal. At the Tourist Office you can pick up a free map: Archipelago Trail Map 7 and you may purchase a more detailed book on the entire Archipelago Trail. Ærø Nature Reserve Ærø Nature Reserve was created by three private land owners and the Municipality of Ærø and is now in the process of being transformed from cultivated land into the original nature area where cows and horses take care of the necessary grazing. Enjoy the varied bird life and the sound of the rare firebellied toads. The area is fenced but there is a clearly marked path with access to the area. Since nearly all trails and paths on Ærø cross over private property you are reminded to always keep your dog on a leash and never to leave any litter. Vitsø and Søbygaard Starting at Loddenbjerg plantation just outside Søby a splendid walking path runs through the area of Vitsø and further on to Duke Hans’ hunting lodge, Søbygaard, with the impressive ramparts. In spring you can enjoy the many nesting greylags in the area,

go for a walk down to the beach and enjoy the view across the Baltic Sea to Als and Germany. The Trail near Gråsten Nor The signposted trail is 8 km long and takes the rambler through the largest coherent meadowland in the area of Funen. Gråsten Nor is a reclaimed sea area now providing the basis for a varied and exciting nature area. In spring, you will find more than 75,000 specimens of the protected may orchid together with both spring frogs and green frogs and hundreds of nesting birds, and in the spring and autumn Gråsten Nor provides an important resting place for countless migrating birds. The Trail at Gravendal The Gravendal trail starts at the same place as the Gråsten Nor trail. The trail offers adventures of both nature and history. It takes the rambler along the high hills of the Vejsnæs coast, past the church ruins of Skt. Albert and up to the ancient monument on Lindsbjerg which offers great views over the Marstal Bay to the island of Langeland The trail passes one of the most distinctive estates on Ærø, Gravendal, which was partitioned from the ducal Graasten. At the tourist office, maps and further information is available – also info on how to combine your walks with the free busses on Ærø. We can also assist you with tips on overnight accommodation and where to eat along or near the various walking routes.

Nature calls you for active holidays

Wind surfing and Kite surfing Ærø provides ideal conditions all year round for windsurfers, whether they are beginners or experts. A fine beach for surfing is never far away. Kite surfers will find good conditions both in Det Lille Hav (The Little Ocean) at Eriks Hale in Marstal and at Urehoved in Ærøskøbing. Sea kayaking Sea kayaking in the South-of-Funen Archipelago is quite a unique experience. Here you will find one of Denmark's most attractive waters, where the many islands and islets invite you to sea kayak adventures. Sea Kayak Centre Marstal arranges day and week courses, where you are introduced to the sea kayak and are taken along on guided tours in the Archipelago. See more at www. havkajakcenter-marstal.dk. It may also be possible to hire a sea kayak and take off on your own. At www.kajakudlejningen.dk you can book sea kayaks, delivered where you like on the island.

Ærø Guide 2017

A fine kayak house has been constructed in Ærøskøbing harbour to complete the project of the ’Blue Strongpoints in the South-of-Funen Archipelago'. The kayak house is made for the benefit of the many kayak enthusiasts of the Archipelago and completes the basic idea of Nature Tourism with the project: Encourage access and nearness to sea and coast. Cooperation is established with the Tourist Office for delivery of keys. Close to the charming camping site, Søby Camping, right down to the Baltic Sea, is a bathing and sea-kayak pier. Cycling Ærø could have been designed specially for cycling holidays. With pleasantly varied countryside, the island is just the right size, so nothing is too far away. Cycle routes 90, 91 and 92 wind for 60km along the coastlines of Ærø, and cyclists are enchanted by the magnificent panoramic views that open up along the way.


Take a break at the wayside stalls that sell the produce Ærø has to offer, or look at the many galleries dotted round the island. Detailed cycling maps are available from the tourist offices. The summer of 2012 saw a new trail for cycling and walking, »Nevrestien« that runs between Marstal and Ærøskøbing. The trail has no climbs and you will have ample opportunities to enjoy the South-of-Funen Archipelago along one side and fields, cornflowers and beautiful nature on the other. At the Tourist Office and at www.ærø.dk you can buy biking maps and books with a total of ten different cycling experiences around the island. Route descriptions spiced with good stories on the locations of the routes. At www.turist-erria.dk you can buy »bicycle packages« complete with ferry ticket, bicycle hire, route description and packed lunch. The local bicycle club also welcome guest riders to their training tours around the island. You will find the riding hours at www.flyingheroes.dk

Here you can have both town and beach tours together with an experienced guide. For dates see the calendar of events or more at www.vitsoehus.dk Angling Ærø offers 80 km of widely varying coastline with fine opportunities for angling for sea trout, cod, garfish and flatfish. The island’s beautiful and diverse nature provides lots of choice for anglers, and it is dif-

ficult to single out one place, as it is possible to angle most of the year from all along the coasts. For instance the south-western part of Ærø is an extended line of angling spots interrupted only by large or small areas of sand. Each year since 1979, Ærø Sportsfiskerforening has put out one and two-year-old sea trout fry directly from the coast. These fish have since contributed to the very fine coast angling for sea trout that Ærø is known for. At the tourist office you can buy the book »117 fine Funen fishing spots«, and the sta­tutory fishing licence – which is also available at www.fisketegn.dk

ure of playing golf on Ærø starts as early as the beautiful trip to the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse which stands as a landmark for the course. Ærø Golf Club's club house is set in the charming old residence of the lighthouse manager. The course is open every day from sunrise to sunset. See more at www. aeroegolf.dk

Outdoor activities There are plenty of opportunities on Ærø for experiencing traditional Nordic outdoor activities, where calm, contemplation and contact between yourself and nature are in focus. LEVINATUR can put together adventures and courses that suit your desire and need, just as a wilderness cask or a cask sauna may be set up all over the island. For rates etc. please see www.levinatur.dk Golf on Ærø The golf course has a unique location at the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse, surrounded by the sea on three sides. You have sea view from each and every green, which makes the course the only one of its kind in Denmark. A seaside course which is otherwise found only in Scotland or Ireland. The views are unique and you will often have to stop and enjoy that dispensation was granted to lay

out a coastal golf course on this very spot. Particularly in summer, there is a myriad of yachts in the Baltic and the South-of-Funen Archipelago on their route round the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse; this makes most golfers breathless. The yachts are often so close to the course that you can hear people talking on board when the weather is calm. A round on the course is a very special experience that you ought to try, and which very many guest players come back to again and again. The front 9 holes are on the southern side of Ærø, and the back 9 holes are behind the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse on the northern side of the island. There are many chal­len­ges, both going out and back, particularly when the wind plays along. You will also have to consider the many protected natural dikes, but with thoughtfulness, the course is manageable. There are no physical extremes on the course. The pleas­

Playgrounds On Ærø, there are several fine playgrounds for big and small children. In connection with the recreational areas at the marinas in Søby, Marstal and Ærøskøbing are some fine playgrounds that appeal to children of all age groups. The playgrounds have a maritime notion, for instance, on the harbour in Marstal there is a big fish trap, in addition to the general playground equipment such as swings, seesaw, aerial runway, etc. The playgrounds are fine excursion targets for the whole family with ample opportunities to enjoy your own food or use the barbecues. The schooner FYLLA – an experience for life An experience for life. Fylla can accommodate 43 guests, 28 can stay overnight. Fylla is a beautiful and well preserved three-mast schooner. Schooner Fylla is a training ship and in the early spring and late autumn she sails with students from the preliminary maritime course, HF Søfart, from the Maritime Education Centre in Marstal. If you see Fylla in May or June and August or September she most likely has camp school pupils on board. Onboard the schooner Fylla, great efforts are made to make visitors participate in sailing. During the summer, Fylla is mainly leased to institu-

Buses on Ærø are free of charge If there is one single thing that both visitors and locals fully enjoy, it's the free buses on Ærø. Basically, the bus leaves once every hour, through beautiful landscapes and idyllic villages. The bus route goes from Ærøskøbing to Marstal through the villages of Lille Rise and Store Rise. Tuesdays and Fridays there are two departures to the authentic fishing hamlets Ommel and Kragnæs. Another route leaves Ærøskøbing to Søby, stopping at Stokkeby Landevej, Olde Mølle – and through the villages of Tranderup, Vindeballe, Bregninge and Leby. The bus also passes through the charming village of Skovby. The bus schedule is well connected with

the arrivals and departures of the ferries. However, if you arrive by the late ferry, you will need to advise the first mate, if you intend to travel by bus after arrival. The free bus gives you the opportunity to jump on and off the bus as you wish – and this applies to your entire stay on Ærø. This means that you will have no trouble in taking accommodation outside the big

This arrangement also means that when planning a walk or a bike-ride you can adapt your start and finish to the bus route. Yes, indeed. You can take your bike on the bus, as long as there is room and time for it. It might very well be that the Alps of Ærø have been just slightly above your anticipation or that you just wish to take the bus going out and the bike coming back. The arrangement offers both calm and good adventures. You will find bus schedules for routes 790 and 791 at www.aeroe-ferry.dk or at www.jesperbus.dk.


Ærø Airfield Ærø Airfield (EKAE) was established in 1960 which makes it one of the oldest airfields in Denmark, and it is also the home base for Starling Air that offers taxi and tour flights. The international airfield connects Ærø with all of Europe and every summer many visiting aircraft land here. With its two grass strips (789m), the airfield is located in the cove of Gråsten Nor, between Ærøskøbing and Marstal. AVGAS 100LL fuel is available against payment in cash, and you may hire a car or bicycles. Further info on Ærø Airfield by phone: +45 63 52 63 67 tions and associations that pay special attention to learning, fellowship and cultural heritage. Private people may also hire the schooner Fylla, on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. Read on about Fylla at www.skonnertenfylla.dk. Fylla was built in 1922 and has a long history of plying the North Sea and the Baltic and as a reefer on the Greenland trade, with a few detours to Canada. The Fylla is operated by shipowners Rederiet Fylla, which is part of the Old Shipyard (Det Gamle Værft) at Ærøskøbing harbour. Det Gamle Værft has many different arrangements over the year.

In principle, all beaches in Denmark are free clothes beaches. The location of the Risemark beach, its characteristics and accessibility, all this means that many naturists enjoy visiting the beach. Good parking at the beach. Risemark beach is clearly marked with the sign FKK/Naturist Beach so as a naturist you

can feel quite comfortable to use the beach in the nude. There are plans to set up tables/benches in the area and possibly a wooden pier which will make the area attractive and unique to many people.

The beautiful Ærø

beaches

With most people, their lifelong love of Ærø begins on the beach. For the beaches of Ærø are charming; each one in its own way. Ærø's three big towns all have child-friendly beaches with crystal clear water and sand. Each summer, happy bathing guests from nearby marinas and camping sites all head for the beaches. You will hear children splashing and laughing and experience bustling and cosy beach life – but still with a good feeling of room to yourselves. Water sports take place from the coast at all beaches – for it is easy to move according to wind and weather if you wish to surf or sail, dive or paddle. Søby Beach This beach is well sheltered in a bay of a beautiful little headland and here is a very 26

fine sandy sea bed and a wooden pier. It is merely a »mussel's throw« to the playground, the marina and the cafe. Vesterstrand West of Ærøskøbing, only a few minutes' walk from marina and camping site. Towards the Urehoved promontory, the fine sandy beach winds beautifully with its colourful beach huts scattered in close formation. This beach is child-friendly with shallow water and little sandy islands and a wooden pier at the start of the beach. It is a tradition for the visitors and citizens of the town to head for the beach in the evening to enjoy the sunset. Many make a bonfire, some may find their SUB board or enjoy a last swim in the warm waves.

Eriks Hale Just outside Marstal, close to the marina and the camping site – and with two types of sea: One at each side. As a matter of fact, Eriks Hale is a tongue: from one side you can swim in the calm, warm Lille Hav (Little Sea), which constitutes a kind of shallow bay between the harbour and the beach – and on the other side is the fresh Baltic Sea. Here are also the picturesque bath huts that sparkle side by side. Also the red thatched beach hut, which is a trade mark in Denmark, is located here. A lovely, long walk runs along the tongue towards Kalkovnen (the Lime Kiln). Along the coast From Ærøskøbing and way out past Skovby, the most delicate and undisturbed beaches


are winding. Towards the unique South-ofFunen Archipelago you will find both sandy and pebbled beaches. Here are shallow stretches as well as deep water. Therefore anglers will often go for these stretches. And here the beeches are literally reflected in the blue sea. On the south coast where the Baltic rolls in, you will find sandy beaches as well beaches with pretty rocks and pebbles shaped by the sea. At the stretch between Voderup Klint and Rise Strand you will find the charac-

teristic rocks with holes, known as ’cows’, and here you may touch gold in the form of amber. You can safely take a swim from here, but don't forget your bathing shoes.

Whitsun of 2014, the Danish Naturist Society held its annual Whitsun gathering on Ærø, when many people visited the beach which was well recommended by the many participants.

Naturists Naturists are welcome on Ærø. At Risemark Strand and at Eriks Hale there are fine stretches of sandy beaches reserved for naturists. Risemark Strand is officially inaugurated as a naturist beach, and during

On Ærø you can take a dip all year round, and the Ærø Winter Swimmers take to the sea from the BP House on Ærøskøbing Harbour every morning at 8 during the season which is from 1 September to 1 May. Everybody is welcome.

History of the beach huts

The first private beach huts on Ærø popped up in the early 1920's. They were erected by locals for private use at Vesterstrand by Ærøskøbing and on Eriks Hale by Marstal. The first beach huts were a very diverse collection. Some were mere shacks, just big enough for changing clothes, whereas others looked like cottages. They were all houses for pleasure and leisure – somewhat like allotment sheds which they resemble in terms of style. The very first huts were erected at the end of a wooden pier, but gradually the huts were positioned along the top of the beach. No rules regulated the constructions and no requirements were made of position-

ing, design or colouring, still some unwritten codes must have applied that needed to be observed in consideration of their location. As the beach huts spread out, some of the rather simple sheds disappeared and many were provided with a small veranda. The majority of the beach huts was erected on the beach which is a public beach. There was some controversy over the legality of the beach huts in the early 1960s, where some owners had major difficulties with the renewal of their lease contracts. The nature conservancy board was involved but even as early as that, the huts had gained such a great place in people's

hearts that removing them was not an option. The beach hut case went on for nearly two decades and in the meantime attempts were made to solve the conflict with various ideas. Today, the beach huts – 74 at Vesterstrand and 19 at Eriks Hale – are featured on various lists of cultural heritage worthy of preservation. The land under the beach huts is on permanent leases. And the provisions are rigorous: No annexes, no additions and no installation of electricity or running water. Everything must remain as it was.

The thatched red beach hut at Eriks Hale is the most photographed hut on Ærø. It was completed on 19 August 1931 and its first owner was the draper Chr. Kristensen and his wife Valborg. When time permitted, the couple went from Marstal out to Eriks Hale, often together with their two children or with colleagues or business relations. Today, the hut is used for special occasions such as weddings. The beach hut is available for booking. Please see www.nostalgimarstal.dk/ strandhus.

Ærø Experiences in a historical perspective Ærøskøbing Town Museum The museum is housed in the old police yard (Landfogedgård) in Brogade. It is the local culture-historical museum of the island which holds collections from the market town, maritime and agricultural environments – including a unique collection of costumes. Paintings by Ærø artists adorn the walls. The county town of Ærøskøbing from the year 1862 can be seen as a model. In the inner courtyard is an old privy and a sand house. The museum garden is a reconstruction from the 1920s. The great hall is hosting various alternating exhibitions. Hammerich's House An extremely well-preserved half-timbered Ærøskøbing house of the 1700's with the original layout where the narrow staircases and an old fireplace are preserved. The house was furnished by sculptor Gunnar

Ærø Guide 2017

Hammerich (1893-1977) and has an impressive collection of antiques, including 3000 Dutch tiles, Kellinghusen faiences and other domestic utensils dating from the 1600's-1800's from South Jutland and the South of Funen Archipelago. For many years, Gunnar Hammerich was a zealous advocate of the preservation-worthy environment in the old market town that has provided the town with the distinguished Europa Nostra Prize in 2002. His artistic activities appear from several memorials across the island. Søbygaard (Patron, His Royal Highness Prince Joachim) The Manor House was built by Duke Hans the Younger in 1580. Both the small hunting seat and the farm buildings stand on small islands bordered by a tall stone glacis. Above the moat the drawbridge is reconstructed

in the postholes of Hans the Duke's original bridge. The Manor House stands right next to Middle Age castle mounds dating back to the 1100's. History emanates from this spot – which also has its own »white lady« and bears witness to Ærø's past under the duchies. The buildings are home to a museum shop, administration, kitchen, activity centre Kiss the Frog and exhibition halls and a concert hall that offers classical concerts at a very high level. The concert hall is decorated with the artist Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen's models of glass mosaics that hang in various Nordic churches. In his last 25 years, Havsteen-Mikkelsen lived at Øster Breg­ ningemark, not far from Søbygaard. During the summer months there are alternating exhibitions in the Castle and in the barn. In the well-preserved cellars of the castle you can see Alexander Jokisch’ tile paintings that were made for Søbygaard.


The restoration of Søbygaard The ugly duckling has grown into a beautiful swan! After 25 years' restoration work the past glories are again distinguished at the one remaining manor of five that Ærø had in the 17th century. The buildings have been restored, a drawbridge has been constructed, a lake-source heating system is now heating the buildings and around the castle, water is again in the moat like in the days of the duke. A rich animal life is heard, not least the croaking frogs. Behind the barn you will find the beehives of Søbygaard full of humming bees that you will meet when Johannes guides you around in the area and teaches you about natural bee keeping. Please see the calendar. In addition a parking area has been built and there is a public path around the lake. In the area behind the barn an amphitheatre and a nature playground are planned.

Ærøskøbing since 1943. The collection holds more than 100-year old bottle ships and is the oldest collection of its kindin the world. Flaske-Peter (1873-1960) managed to build more than 1700 bottle ships and 50 big model ships. Around 500 ships can be seen in the collection along with the memorial cross of his own making with seven bottle ships built into the cross – one for each of the seven seas. The reacquired America Collection with the famous diving bottle is presented in a different and exciting exhibition. Det Gamle Værft – The Archipelago Restoration Centre in Ærøskøbing Det Gamle Værft (The Old Shipyard) is a communicator of maritime cultural heritage and Danish artisan traditions. In live workshops visitors can get close to history and even get dirty fingers. In the forge, you will be carefully guided in grappling with the red-hot iron, in the cop-

Ærø's national flag Ærø has its own flag which originates from Duke Christian, Duke of Ærø from 1622 to 1633. The standard is described in his estate inventory, where it says that it is was wound around a pole and measured 2.87 m x 2.81 m, after conversion from the Hanseatic measure. The standard was golden yellow, sea green and body coloured in 9 stripes. The current three-striped Ærø flag appeared around 1960 – a modern version. In the 1600s, flags usually had multiple stripes. A reconstruction of the old standard can be seen at Søbygaard.

Kiss the Frog Kiss the Frog is a concept aiming at providing child families and school classes with a lot of fun and instructive experiences in nature and in cultural history. The events centre Kiss the Frog at Søbygaard provides children and adults with equipment to go hunting for adventures and surprises in nature. Go on a treasure hunt, find a crazy creature or herbs for wild pancakes. In all tranquillity you may test various experiences in nature with ten different activities to choose from. You can borrow all the required equipment; GPS for treasure hunts, dish recorder for birdcalls, nets for exploring animals and insects in the pond and much more – and grab a printed guideline to get safely through these activities: - Goodies from the wayside – make wild pancakes by the bonfire. - Catch bird songs – record the birds' calls and determine the bird. - Witch tricks – Can wild plants shield you from evil? - Treasures from the past – treasure hunting with GPS. - Creepy-crawly vermin in the bush – woodlouse races. - Crazy creatures of the pond – what do we find in the lake? - Energy from wind, water and sun – make your own energy. - Playing at all times – bow and arrow and up on your stilts! - Cutting wood – make your own crafted art. - From seed to cake – mill your own flour. Opening hours for Kiss the Frog are the same as those for Søbygaard. Flaske-Peters Samling The bottle and model ship collection has been exhibited in the former poorhouse in Ærø Guide 2017

per workshop you may forge a bracelet, at the rigging loft you can lay a rope, twine your own key ring and do various sailors' jobs. You can pat a fish and schools and institutions may also slaughter a fish and take it along home for the dinner table.

Exhibition and experience are put together to give you ample opportunity of immersion and involvement. The main emphasis is on the processes around the old riveted iron and steel ships. This kind of ship preservation is found nowhere else in Denmark.

The vessel, Angelo ex S/S Svendborgsund is on the building berth. The renovation which is part of the exhibition is up and running. The aim is that the S/S Svendborgsund will be renovated and restored to appear as she did a hundred years ago. At that time, the S/S Svendborgsund operated as a passenger ship plying the Marstal – Rudkøbing – Strynø route. Both experiences and exhibitions at The Old Shipyard are constantly evolving and changing. We are currently engaged in restoration jobs. Sometimes we take on old iron constructions for buildings, or over 100-year-old ship's accommodation, or we work for museums or for private people. We look forward to seeing you and giving you experiences to remember.

Traditions on Ærø Twelfth Night and Shrovetide Celebrations

At the end of the Christmas period, three days and nights are spent on »going disguised« on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in early January. Generally during the first weekend of the month, but in years when Thursday falls on 5th January or earlier, the fun and games will move to the second weekend. The district is divided into three locations: Søby and Haven, Skovby and Leby, Bregninge and Tværby. The district for the »masks« to walk on either Thursday, Friday or Saturday is decided for each year by the so-called plan of masks – please ask at the Tourist Office. 150 years ago, this tradition was introduced on Ærø by a journeyman tailor who had been inspired by a custom from the neighbouring island of Als. On Twelfth Night in 1860 he came to a farm in Leby where he was owed money by the farmer’s old widow. The tailor, who was in disguise, almost frighte­ned the old woman to death, and she shouted: That‘s the Devil himself! From then on, some of the villagers began walking around in disguise wearing masks. The tradition is still alive today. Many households have their own special disguises which are used only for this purpose, although whatever garment you have will do, as long as you are not recognisable. For example, a young man may hide behind the mask of an old woman. In a high-pitched voice, the disguised revellers play pranks on people and move from house to house, making certain that their identity is not revealed. The rules of everyday life may to a certain degree be transgressed. When visitors come to a house, they have to have a subject ready and be inventive and creative. They might

offer seeds for apple dumplings. Indeed! The seeds must be sown at the end of September to have reached their proper size for Christmas! You will even see sample dumplings as a »proof«. Others, for example, are having a great time demonstrating an eternity machine they have »invented«. The hosts are as important players to the game as those disguised and their pranks. To consume the drinks offered without removing their masks, the dressed-up visitors bring along straws. And quite a number of drinks are consumed in the course of the evening! Once the disguised people have left to call on the next house, the hosts start guessing who hid behind the masks. The truly ambitious ones may come back in a different disguise. This tradition of disguising is also known in Ærøskøbing and Marstal, but here it takes place at Shrovetide. While the adults do their pranks in the evening, children »go mask« during the day. The two mask traditions at Twelfth Night and Shrovetide are very similar, but in Marstal, the mask must fall and the identity of the disguised people must be revealed before they leave the house. If you are a newcomer to Ærø and you feel like sharing in these pranks, please see the press for publicly announced mas­ querades. Easter Saturday Easter Saturday is one of the most important days of the whole year, because this is the day when we boil eggs on the beach. If you arrive on Ærø on this day, you needn’t be surprised to find the streets empty – (almost) all of the islanders are at the beach. In Ærøskøbing museums

are closed (a rare exception) and a note on the door announces: – »We are boiling eggs!« In great numbers everybody on the island gathers in groups, not just the locals, also friends and acquaintances from off the island go on a pilgrimage to the beach every year. How old is this tradition? It is a known fact that around the year 1900 the eldest children went from farm to farm on Easter Saturday, sang to the families and were given eggs in return. Then they took the eggs to the beach and boiled them in sea water. The groups sit at the beach around a camp fire, often three generations participate. Eggs are boiled, sausages are grilled and beer is consumed. Friendships made in this way often last for life, even if only in connection with this single occasion. On Easter Saturday, young and old are allowed to get soiled and get a little out of line. The weather is no hindrance. If it’s windy, you find a sheltered place. Come rain or come snow: eggs must be boiled on the beaches of Ærø.

The unique

Marstal Maritime Museum Ahoy visitor! Put on your oilskins when you approach Ærø, and make for the Maritime Museum. When you board the Maritime Museum you'll soon feel like a genuine tar – begin your stay on Ærø with an experience of spindrift for landlubbers as well as sailors. You may have been on the island before and if so, you will astound when you revisit the Maritime Museum and wonder What's going on here? – and for a good reason, for something is indeed going on. That applies to every year, but this year is special, as the Museum's remote identification profile has been upended. On the corner of Havnegade and Strandstræde a new building has popped up. The Museum has growing pains and just on the threshold of the summerintake, we open with new splendours. The new building connects the two existing exhibition buildings. The Museum is currently favoured with fine treats, e.g. Carl Rasmussen paintings which with the extension will have more wall

32

Ærø Guide 2017

space. Recent navigation and temporary exhibitions will also have more space available. Shipwrecked folks, who previously had to remain on the street and look into the promised land, will now happily be invited indoors and around in the Museum, as we have established ramps and elevators/lifts in connection with the construction. Bring along the young ones and let them go to sea in the dinghy port of the museum courtyard, where children and childlike souls can climb the mast, enter small boats or take on a long voyage with the good ship S/S MARTHA. At certain times, children may »Build your own ship«. Indoors you will find large gear from the ships such as cabins and deckhouses, the galley from the schooner BONAVISTA and the original wheelhouse from M/S DORA, where you may board and take the helm or enter the ship's cabins where heavy seas and engine noises will transfer you to the world of the high seas. You can also sit down as a first-class passen-

ger in a deck saloon that once stood on the steam ferry BAGENKOP, previously known as the ÆRØ. Among more than 300 ship's models and panoramas are examples from the first types of sailing ships up to coasters and ferries of our time. A big harbour panorama of Marstal Harbour in 1925 with laid up ships will give you an impression of a lay-up harbour of the time with the ships decommissioned for the winter. Here is a sail maker and his rigging loft, name boards, a boat yard and ship's engines. You will find a sea of wondrous curiosities brought back by mariners from their voyages on the Seven Seas, from exotic places, and the cold Polar Regions, for instance a shrunken head that also sails along in Carsten Jensen's book We, The Drowned. Here are seamen's wives in old costumes in a complete living-room atmosphere that you pass while walking through a snorre – one of the small narrow passages that are so characteristic of Marstal.


Mads Boye's bottle ship collection The Maritime Museum holds a lot of items crafted by the watch below such as walking sticks made from the spine of unfortunate sharks, a doll's house and ships in bottles – an entire armada of them even. Well over 100 of these were made by windjammersailor Mads Boye as true copies of old sailing ships. Minutely made to the smallest detail are also Flemming Frederiksen's bottled ship models that also include coasters and ferries. Maritime and Greenland Painter J. E. C. Rasmussen The museum has an ever increasing collection of one of the big Danish golden-age painters, J. E. C. Rasmussen. He was born in Ærøskøbing in 1841, was educated as a painter at the Copenhagen Royal Academy of Art, and later moved to Marstal, where in 1880 his house and studio was built. Through scholarships, Rasmussen travelled in Europe, for instance to Italy and – more specifically and, indeed an alternative at the time – also to Greenland where he stayed in 1870-71, during which period he made many sketches and painted women's boats, grouse hunters, the carrying home of a dead sealer, children playing, and kayaks in impressive Greenland nature. Rasmussen is best known for his Greenland and maritime paintings which he made with great skill as he himself had been to sea in his youth. Sky, sea and waves had left deep impressions from his voyages to and from Greenland and along its coastal areas. Rasmussen was the first to depict the lives of Greenlanders, for instance through some of his major works Natives Dancing the Tag

Dance from 1872 and Young Sealer in Kayak in Snow Drift from 1886, recently added to our collection, which is currently expanded through donations. The painter perished in the North Atlantic Ocean on his way home to Marstal from Greenland in 1893, presumably he jumped overboard. Author Carsten Jensen has described the event in his novel »Last Journey«. Lorens Hansen's model ship collection Sailor and shooing smith Lorens Hansen was a model builder of supreme skill. 42 results of his efforts can be seen in the exhibitions from skiffs, over pleasure yachts to the fivemast bark and training vessel KØBENHAVN, which perished without a trace in 1928 with a crew of 60 young trainees. It is also worth mentioning the Danish royal yacht DANNEBROG and the unique panorama model of the H. C. Christensen Shipyard in 1900, where you are referred to the shipyard activities of the time, particularly if you kneel and view the scenery at quay level or dinghy level, and with a bit of imagination this will surely make you feel present at the site and in a very different time and age – for better or worse! Do take your time for the visit! – and take a walk down to the museum area on the harbour in front of the museum: Eriksen's Site. The Breakwater and Eriksen's Site – sea-green cultural heritage in Marstal At the easternmost coastline of Ærø is a natural harbour with access to the Baltic and the Archipelago, protected towards the south by Eriks Hale (Erik's Tail) and to the east by the impressive and kilometre-long pier. The natural harbour has provided liv-

ing conditions for fishermen and seamen since the dawn of time, and it is the basis for the origin and the growth of Marstal. In line with the explosive growth of the town's merchant fleet in numbers and sizes in the 18th and 19th centuries, an extension of the natural harbour became imperative. The fleet was the capital and the production apparatus of the entire community of the town and thus also its basis for existence, and for several winter months each year the fleet was laid up in the natural harbour. A heavy south-easterly storm that brought destruction to the natural harbour and ships in 1824 speeded up the expansion plans that had not found any fair winds with the authorities. A group of skippers now took matters in their own hands. They soon gained the support from the town – around 200 people immediately signed up to work voluntarily at the harbour. On 28 January 1825 around one hundred men began the harbour work which resulted in the impressive and more than one-kilometre long harbour breakwater, built by the town's seamen during one winter after the other under the motto UNITY MAKES STRENGTH. These are the words on the monument for the families of the breakwater-builders. In the lee behind the boulder breakwater, harbour areas with shipbuilding sites were established. One of these sites is Eriksen's Site with Eriksen's Yard – a harbour section most highly worth preservation. This is where Marstal Maritime Museum has moved in. Eriksen's Site is one of the breeding grounds for wooden-shipbuilding with origins in the golden age of Danish shipping with sailing vessels. A dozen woodenshipbuilding yards have launched ships from this site over the years. The site is one of the green breathing spaces with which Marstal Harbour is blessed. Here you are welcome to grill your food and use tables/benches. At certain hours the yard hall is open as well as the engine shed where engines, sometimes even a hot-bulb engine, will be started. Tickets for the Maritime Museum will allow access to this. You are welcome on the site where you can walk around amidst Danish maritime history. The schooner BONAVISTA that lies alongside for restoration may be visited and SAMKA, the coaster, is also alongside quay. On the site is a partly erected framed schooner as a sculpture of the extensive shipyard activities that have marked the town – up to eight shipyards have simultaneously been building ships on the harbour area. Obviously you move around all over the harbour at your own risk as is the case in harbours and costal areas in general. Welcome on board Danish seafaring! Ærø Guide 2017

A Mecca of

good sense experiences

It may be the clean and clear air that makes scents and tastes appear obvious on too Ærø. Here you will find a Mecca of good sense experiences. You fill with joyful remembrance when you taste an old-fashioned candy or sniff at genuine soap. Pleasure of food and local quality produce are in high esteem on Ærø. Scattered over the island you will find farms, conventional as well as organic, and both big and small food manufacturers who are all preoccupied with producing quality pro­ ducts. On the island you will find several eateries that use local produce for their menus – don't hesitate to ask for the history behind your meal. On Ærø we produce meat of a very high qua­ lity which you can taste either at the local restaurants – or take home as cuts and irresistible smoked goods. Or how would you like to select your future steak directly from the field? Ærø also offers a profusion of new-spun

34

Ærø Guide 2017

honey, syrup and juices of all kinds, marmalades, wine, rapeseed oil, teas, herbal and spiced salt, creams and soaps, candies and filled chocolates. When you move about on the island you will find several road-side stalls with fresh eggs

and fruit and vegetables along with plenty of other good things. The island butcher in the village of Dunkær, who also slaughters locally bred lams, goats, pigs and cows and does his magic and makes everything into delicatessen and goodies


in the good old-fashioned way according to secret recipes and with special blends of spices. In the village of Rise you will find the island brewery, Rise Bryggeri, which offers a wide range of good beer, also organic. During the summer time the brewery offers tours and beer tasting several times every week. Neighbouring Rise Bryggeri is Ærø Cigar. A small tobacco plantation which each year produces hand-rolled Ærø cigars. Here you have the opportunity of following the tobacco road from seeds to complete rolled cigars, for the entire process is made more or less by hand in Rise. In 2016, Ærø Whisky Destillery & Visitor's Centre opened in the yard of the old merchant's house at the Town Square in Ærøskøbing. Ærø Whisky is genuinely a local product where each and every bottle can be traced to the specific field on the island that supplied the barley malt. The oak barrels, manufactured of Ærø oak by joiners in Søby, are used at first to store mead made of Ærø honey in order to provide the finished whisky with a slightly sweet flavour. In Marstal, you may pamper your sweet tooth with a visit to Ø Bolcher, the candy store that makes organic candies and caramels. Here you will have the opportunity of following the process and during the school vacation children are allowed to make their own lollipop. Opposite you will find Øhavets Chokolade, the chocolate maker who makes chocolates filled with Ærø fruit, the local walnut beer and much more. Sæberiet in Søby produces the most wonderful soaps and spiced salts with flowers and herbs from the large and beautiful garden that is open to visitors. During the summer time, children may come and make their own soap figures. Vitsøhus with its sloping terrain stands directly on the picturesque Vitsø lake. Over the

past few years the soil around the farm has been converted into a lovely permaculture garden where animals and an abundance of plant species, herbs, rose bushes and vegetables form a luxuriant affinity. Vitsøhus permaculture garden is laid out as a visitor's garden with a system of paths that allows the visitor to go for experiences in the diverse flora. Moreover, you may experience the abundant nature on and around the property by Segway. Not far from the scenic, dammed up Vitsø Nor you will find Økogård Vitsø. Here you pass through small orchards and groves, hedges, dikes and sheep folds to Johannes Hets’ beehives. On the farm Økogård Vitsø you can see that the bees are thriving. Johannes has made active efforts in creating the right environment for the bees. Johannes has planted fruit and linden trees – and converted land into pastures with clover, which give the best basis for wild herbs and the flora that are natural to Vitsø. Many people come to see the place and to see Vitsø – but increasing numbers come specifically to learn about bees from Johannes Hets’ dissemination of natural bee holding. Every Tuesday from 30 May till 18 July you can meet Johannes at the manor Søbygaard and learn about his work with the bees and get advice on natural bee holding.

If you are a city person and seek the contrast to the usual hustle and bustle, the bay called Borgnæsbugten may take you by surprise in the happiest way. This is a place where you will be embraced by nature, by animals and by light reflected by the sea at the big sandy beach in the bay. In Borgnæs you will find the farm shop Sofienlund, which from the fine round straw house will tempt you with all sorts of organic delicacies from own production. In the fields, the sheep are grazing – not knowing that they are suppliers of the most delicious Ærø wool for yarns of all grey colours; yarns that you may buy also from Fie’s Strik in Leby. In the farm shop Blåbær in Ærøskøbing, you will also find yarns spun from wool from the shop's own sheep. Take the opportunity of saying hello to the animals and have a cup of coffee in the garden while the children pat the cute cuddly pigs. Den Gamle Købmandsgård in Ærøskøbing is a gathering point for a major part of the varied produce from the island and here you may also buy meat and cold cuts from the butcher in Dunkær. The societies Ærø Fødevarenetværk and Økologiske Ærø gather the threads and are ready to provide more information on the producers on Ærø.

Ærø – a visual

dream

Ærø is an extremely photogenic island and many photographers visit the island to explore the luxuriant and profound golden age landscape, the abundance of detail in the romantic small villages, the uniqueness of the secret, picturesque pearls and the profusion in the weathered maritime environment. It is also a challenge to many visual artists to catch the colourful characteristics of the towns, the hollyhock idyll, and the meandering streets in fairy-tale environments. Here are happy days, music and activities, festivals and street life, and people of all ages. Ærø reflects new scenarios all year round, obviously the weather is changeable and you will feel that here, nature rules. Because of its location in the South-of-Funen Archipelago, Ærø also has a special variation of landscape to attract the visual artist's eye with the soft coast lines towards the Archipelago and the more rugged lines towards the Baltic Sea. Every day, the sea will reveal its impact. After windy days, the water is drawn away

from the bays and will reveal sand islands with mussel banks that attract a multitude of birds. Many visitors choose to cycle the whole island along small roads, criss-crossing at their own tempo. Others take the free bus, get off when the eye catches something interestingperhaps an idyllic fruit or vegetable booth or a field with sheep and horses–and then climb back on an hour later when another bus comes along. It is something special to spend a holiday catching the island life in the eye of a camera. Taking the tour from the top of a hill with panoramic views of white sails in the horizon. Going all the way down to the coast to catch the waves breaking the hull of an old wooden boat, or watching seaweed or a shrimp trap breaking the surface of the water. The coasts on Ærø are easily accessible as the small roads allow for many trips–just keep an eye on the signs marked ’Til Stranden’ (to the beach).

The sunlight is reflected marvellously on the sea surface, a phenomenon you will see on sunny days by going to the coastline and study the sea. Photographers are captured by the play of light in beautiful wet rocks and the colours of small delicate beach plants, and you can easily spend a whole day looking at shadows and lines and colours. The light is indeed wonderful and changes quickly, according to the time of year and day. You may be fortunate to catch the most wonderful sunsets in the Archipelago as well as the silhouettes of the famous beach huts – in settings that may well compare with the world's most commended sunsets. Ærø is a dream for photographers, not only because you get it all for free. For even though there is a profusion of beauty just waiting to be caught by your lens, you will always be able to find new scenes and different angles. The well-known is only waiting to be examined. The unknown is waiting to be explored.

Autumn

on the wishing island Once the winds start howling and the clouds do not refrain from dripping on the wishing island – that's the time when Ærø turns up its cosiness. This is the time to find your favourite sweater, dust off your waterproofs and see if last year's wellies are still tight. On Ærø nothing can stop children or adults from being fond of the autumn. In everyday life, there is often hustle and bustle. On Ærø, however, this time of year gives you the opportunity of calm and contemplation and fine autumn adventures. Not least are the autumn holidays on Ærø a welcome breathing space and we often hear, that on Ærø you find the Denmark of times gone by: - Do you dream of a spot where children are children who can still enjoy purposeless playing for ever and ever? - Do you dream of a time with adventures without flickering screens? - Do you dream of holidays with activities for both spirit and hand? In the autumn holiday there are plenty of healthy, fun, educative activities for children and adults on Ærø!

Christmas

island to all of Denmark

Have you often dreamt of a different Christmas? Christmas holidays on the fairy-tale island of Ærø, with the fine and relaxed atmosphere, are perfect, if you wish to escape from Christmas stress and perhaps find the way to the essence of the festive season. Christmas time is a great opportunity to gather the whole family. When you spend Christmas together, you have a great opportunity to enjoy and relax. Renting a cottage will also provide ample space for grand parents and other family members to allow for the right Christmas spirit. Christmas on Ærø means ... – The aroma of home-made Danish doughnuts the Ærø-way with the traditional prune in the middle – Red-cheeked children and adults – all well protected by woollen caps and mittens – in the charming cobbled streets, carrying their Christmas shopping and in infectious Christmas mood – A glimpse of a festive Christmas tree through frosted windows, Christmas decorations on stone steps, decorated windows and candles in window sills – all of Ærø is oozing with Christmas atmosphere during the weeks up to Christmas! On Ærø people have their own traditions of what is required for a real Christmas and here we are without shopping malls to take

away your focus from the inner spirit of Christmas: time together, reflection and care – and most of all: cosiness and comfort. Everywhere small and cozy Christmas markets pop up, filled with home-made knitwear, decorations and ideas for presents. In the towns we gather for major markets, such as the big Christmas Market in the Fairy Tale town of Ærøskøbing and ’Black Friday’ in Søby and Marstal. Father Christmas and his family arrive by sea to Marstal on board the good ship Samka and light up the Christmas tree in the heart of town at the Compass Rose.

The pretty Elves Parade with beautiful horse drawn carriages and sleighs runs for several days in Ærøskøbing. The beautiful Elves Parade on 23rd December runs through Søby and ends with goodie bags, biscuits and a cosy atmosphere. Indeed, on Ærø we go all the way – not when it comes to stress and hustle – but when it's about being together around a cup of hot glogg, a Christmas tree to be lit, biscuits to be baked or an angel to be cut out for the tree. And the locals on Ærø welcome visitors – also at Christmas.

Festive seasons on Ærø Easter Easter on Ærø is so much more than ­boiling eggs on the beaches. There are wonderful moments in the churches, interesting talks in village halls and inspiring music arrangements in inns and guest houses. Easter on Ærø means friendly towns with early spring feelings, outdoor service at cafés and clothes racks in the traffic free streets, or perhaps a guided town tour or a visit to one of the interesting museums.

Whitsun There are indeed many good reasons for celebrating spring on Ærø. For instance, you can make your Whitsun weekend in May a little more green with holidays on wheels where in your own pace you can come close to the great Ærø nature when it really begins to present itself at its best.

Flea Markets From early spring to late autumn you can also find flea markets all over the island: in garages, stables, hallways and on stone steps – you may even be lucky to strike flea-gold. Perhaps the big street markets or town flea markets in May will attract most customers: During their spring cleaning, the locals have thoroughly sorted out from their stores. And Ærø is in fact known as a place where you can still strike it lucky at the right price.

Flourishing

creativity

The art association, Ærø Kunstforening, was founded in 2003. It is an open and dynamic association that offers its members a community with exhibitions, development of ideas and presentation. The association has around 150 members – creative artists, craftsmen and people interested in arts and culture. The association arranges several public exhibitions and events. The association arranges several public exhibitions and events, including many exhibitions during the summer in Dommergaardens Havehus in the garden of the old court building in Ærøskøbing and Kunst i Pak-

huset in the warehouse on Marstal habour. The island has always had an attraction on visual artists. Just as on Bornholm, in Skagen and Odsherred, light is the utmost attraction. Wherever you are on the island, the sea around it will always ensure that light is reflected and intensified so as to provide sharper contours and saturated colours. Some of the island’s creative souls use ­nature directly: stones, shells, herbs, wood. Others are inspired to work in paper – with charcoal and watercolours – or on canvas with oil and acrylic paint. With some, the outcome is a sculpture or

clay is made into a form. Common for all of us in the island is that we live with hilly cliffs, headlands, moraine hills, stony beaches, sandy beaches, salt meadows, slopes, marsh, commons, woods, and fields that are still stone fenced leaving the countryside in our island small-chequered. In Ærø, galleries and workshops are open all over the island. Where there is a sign, guests are welcome to visit the creative artist and watch his or her working methods and works of art. Small stores sell unique items – clothing, jewellery, hats, and paintings. Everybody is welcome to Ærø Kunstforening’s many arrangements during the year. On the association’s website (www. kunstnerne.dk) you can see lists of arrangements and activities and a presentation of the members and their works.

More and more people wish a full life; a life without stress, noise and smoke – a life in harmony with themselves, their nearest and dearest and nature. This is where Ærø could be an obvious choice, because Ærø lacks all that a big city has in abundance: bustle, stress, noise, trash. On Ærø people still care for one another, here is neighbourhood, here people great one another, here you do not end up in social emptiness – if only you know how to reach out your hand and see how the land lies. Ærø has a profusion of offers organised by more than the 150 associations and societies, by the art society, by the open workshops, by open university …. by and large, everyone on Ærø is a member or organiser of one thing or another. If you like choir singing, that's possible, are you interested in graphics, there is an open graphics workshop, if you like Friday bars, meet up at Købmandsgården, if you prefer after-work coffee, visit the parish hall, are you more in for quiet hours, the churches have plenty of opportunities. Have we whetted your appetite for a possible future on Ærø? Make a call to the island settlement consultant and learn more. Maybe the settler's house is vacant? This is a fur-

The hotel with the idyllic atmosphere, in the heart of Ærøskøbing... The location of the hotel in Ærøskøbing, in the middle of the island, makes it the ideal base from which to explore the magnificent scenery of Ærø. A short stroll down to the sandy beaches, or a lazy wander around the cobbled streets of the town with its well-preserved old houses, provide a unique insight into the local way of life. Guided tours can be arranged.

Festivals, fairs

and concerts

The Classical Søbygaard Concerts Each summer, a string of classical concerts is presented in the refurbished barn at the restored ducal seat, Søbygaard. Some of the country's best classical soloist, ensembles and chamber musicians meet here to benefit from the fine acoustics of the hall and the captivated commitment of the audience. The concert hall was completed in 1999 and was built with inspiration from the wooden churches in the Faroe Islands. It has on show a number of preliminary works for glass mosaics made by painter Sven HavsteenMikkelsen. Members of the audience sit close to the podium so that they can hear and feel every strike of a cello bow or each tap of the piano. The musicians have often mentioned that the audience in the Søbygaard hall makes them perform at their utmost, because people are so captivated. The hall has 120 seats and it is a good idea to buy tickets in advance of the concert beginning at 7.30 pm , either at the Ærø Tourist Office or at Søbygård, but tickets are also sold at the entrance an hour ahead of the concert. Tickets are 140 DKK for adults and 20 DKK for children up to 16 years of age. Many listeners arrive well before the concert with a picnic basket and sit at the tables under the big walnut tree in the yard where they may

admire the »castle« surrounded by water. They may also take a stroll around the lake or climb the rampart of the fort and enjoy the beautiful views of the cove Vitsø Nor and the Baltic Sea. The association Friends of Søbygaard that arranges the concerts can proudly claim to be the owner of one of the country's finest Fazioli grand pianos. The 2017 concert programme begins with The Four Tenors who celebrate their 10th anniversary on Ærø where they appeared together for the first time. Their repertoire includes highlights from the cooperation with composer Andy Pape and author Bjarne Jes Hansen, and obviously their well-known

and beloved arias with a humorous approach to the classical repertoire. The Eskær Trio with the sisters Julie and Emilie Eskær and pianist Charlotte Thanning have big assignments in 2017. They will be touring in China and the US, but have taken the time off for a revisit to Søbygaard where last year they received standing ovations for their Tchaikovsky interpretations. The Alpha Trio with the recorder-player Bolette Roed, Peter Navarro-Alonso on saxophone and David Hildebrandt on percussion will come to Ærø with an exciting music mix of classical and jazz music. The popular Tango Orchestra comes next with a catchy and engaging programme presenting composition music, jazz and folk music. One of the leading pianists in Denmark, Christina Bjørkøe, has gathered her dream trio consisting of Johannes Søe Hansen, conductor of the Danish Radio Orchestra, and cellist and professor Henrik Brendstrup who will play works by Fini Henriques, Niels W. Gade and Brahms. The Søbygaard Concerts have persuaded the trio to play a concert also for the children on Ærø. The classical summer concerts conclude with a festive evening lit only by candles. The hall is converted into a French café and the music and songs are served by Trio Satie with Isabel Piganol, soprano, Lars Malther, double bass, and Ulla Habermann, piano. Welcome to the eighteenth season of highlevel classical concerts at Søbygaard. Programme 2017 12 July: The Four Tenors, Thomas Præstegaard, Torben Nielsen Kirkegaard, Jens Jacob Rosengren Honoré, Magnus Vigilius with Irene Hasager, piano. 26 July: Eskær Trio, Julie Eskær, violin, Emilie Eskær, violin/cello, Charlotte Thanning, piano. 2 Aug: Alpha Trio, Bolette Roed, recorder, Peter Navarro-Alonso, saxophone, David Hildebrandt, percussion. 9 Aug: Tango Orchestra, Kristian Jørgensen, violin, Henrik Sveidahl, soprano saxophone and bass clarinet, Kåre Munkholm, vibraphone,

Two operas in one night in Marstal: The Clowns and The Cloak On Saturday, 1 July at 8pm, guidOpera in cooperation with Ærø Opera Friends stages as many as two operas at Ebbe's Boatyard by Monica Fabricius. For the ninth year running the big boat hall will resound of singing and music and give audience, singers and musicians a great musical experience in the hall which by some fortunate coincidence has extraordinarily fine acoustics. At one vital point, opera does not resemble real life, as a violent death, thankfully, is the exception in reality even though it does happen. However, big feelings – and not least jealousy – are known by most people, and this is one reason why opera attracts such a great audience. It's about life itself, being a human among other humans! Jealousy is the turning point in Leoncavallo's »Pagliacci« (The Clowns) and Puccini's »Il tabarro« (The Cloak), and in both cases jealousy is aroused by infidelity. The opera most known among these two is probably »The Clowns«, which is frequently staged together with »Cavalleria Rusticana«, but not this time. The libretto tells the story about a group of strolling players whose leader, Canio, is jealous because one of the players, Tonio, makes passes at his wife,

From the opera »Rigoletto«. Performed in Marstal 2016.

Nedda. However, she turns him down as she takes a greater interest in a young villager, Silvio. Silvio contacts Nedda and attempts to persuade her to elope with him. This conversation is overheard by the rejected and wounded Tonio who is hiding, and he decides to take revenge by fetching Canio, the husband, from the inn. Silvio succeeds in escaping, and Nedda refuses to give his name. However, Canio cannot let the idea pass, and in the evening– during the play–he comes on stage in the part as the clown. Nedda is already there, playing the part of Columbine, and in front of the audience he attempts to urge her to disclose the lover's name. She continues to deny and Canio stabs her. Silvio tries to come to her aid. But he too is stabbed. ­Everything is over, or as Tonio says, turning to the audience: »The comedy is over.«

Puccini's opera »The Cloak« is the first of three operas included in »Il trittico«, three one-act operas composed during the years 1915-1918. Jealousy is flourishing when Michele's barge is finished unloading and his wife, Giorgetta, asks him if she can invite the stevedores for a glass of wine. The stevedores are all taken in by Giorgetta, and she is clearly attracted to the young Luigi, who stays around to arrange a rendezvous with Giorgetta. They agree that Giorgetta will light a match as a signal for all clear. Luigi leaves and Michele, who clearly senses that something is wrong, starts complaining that she does not love him anymore and that he is longing for the days when they were both under the cloak on the deck in the cool evenings. Giorgetta turns in while Michele ponders whether his wife may have a lover. He lights his pipe and thereby accidentally sends the signal to Luigi who immediately sneaks on board. Michele discovers him and forces him to confess – and strangles him! He hides the dead body under his cloak and when Giorgetta comes on deck he encourages her to comfort under his warm cloak like in the old days. She is in for a shock! It turns into a dramatic evening in Ebbe's Boatyard with some of the country's best singers on stage. Guido Paevatalu, who directs the operas, is accompanied on the stage by Niels Jørgen Riis and Anders Jakobsson and others.

From the opera »Rigoletto«. Performed in Marstal 2016.

Tickets are available from Ærø Tourist Office (+45 62 52 13 00 or post@arre.dk) and any remaining tickets are sold at the entrance. There will be two ticket prices. A-tickets at DKK 375 and B-tickets at DKK 325. Ærø Guide 2017

Ærø Dog Days

The Irish Festival in Marstal 11, 12 and 13 August 2017 Enjoy the evocative Irish Festival with concerts and jam sessions with Irish music in the Ebbes Bådebyggeri and at Foley's Pub in the heart of Marstal. Ærø Accordion Festival 18-21 May 2017 You can listen to the fine Swedish songs by Evert Taube – Italian virtuoso pieces by Frosini – musical music from America – rock and swing. – You can dance in the festival marquee from top-of-the-pops or Nordic folk music like ganglåt and reinlender. – You can have a great time singing along in the rowing club or relax and listen to the many soloists and groups in the yacht club. – This is entertainment for all age groups. Each group of musicians or soloist is on stage for 25 minutes – and during the weekend the three stages will present more than 85 changes with a new group or soloist, so there is no chance of boredom. The stages are in the yacht club at the Marina (address: Sejlmagervej 1, DK-5960 Marstal), in the big festival marquee by the Ærø Accordion festival


yacht club and in the premises of the rowing club facing the Marina. Musicians and visitors of all age groups come to Ærø »from the other side«, the expression used by Ærø-folks about people from the rest of the world. Our musicians come from all over Scandinavia, from Germany and Bulgaria. Many have been on Ærø to play their music each year since the start 23 years ago – and others appear for the first time. The 2017 programme will be available at harmonika-festival.dk two-three weeks prior to the festival, and you are welcome to register as a musician from early January 2017. If you get hungry or thirsty during the weekend, we will be serving light refreshments, coffee, cake and draught beer from the local Rise Brewery on Ærø – and it is very likely that again in 2017 the menu will include whole suckling pigs and pork chops. Performing musicians may book a cam­ping

space on the festival area against a fee. Many also book their own cottage in Marstal or elsewhere on the island. Please see details at harmonika-festival.dk or Ærø Tours at aeroetours.dk/hf where you can book and find various packages including ferry. – Don't forget to book your ferry crossing in due time – the sooner, the better. And do remember the traditional concert on Thursday evening at 7.30 pm in Marstal Church. Come early, for the church will be full. We look forward to seeing you at the accordion festival in Marstal, where everyone is welcome. Access is free, but we welcome a coin or a note in the relevant boxes. IMPORTANT: Ferry crossings for the 2017 festival will be at heavily reduced rates. – See, book and pay for your crossing at www.aeroe-ferry.dk. Contact: Ærø Folkelige Musikforening, Vibeke Lykke Friis: info@harmonika-festival.dk

Forgotten pearls On Ærø you can find some maritime pearls, Kleven and Strandby – both harbours for the village of Ommel – and both popular destinations for biking or hiking holidays on Ærø. In Strandby, you will find an authentic local environment with picturesque fisherman's sheds and a cheerful atmosphere. Strandby Havn is a small private boat harbour with room for a few guest boats and the jetties have water and power. Next to the harbour is a fine little sandy beach where you can rest and enjoy the moment while watching the many different ships passing by. At the tables and benches, you may also set the table for your own lunch. Kleven Havn is bigger. Here is a primitive camp site where you may put up your tent and enjoy the night accompanied only by a light breeze and the seagulls. Here are also good opportunities for visiting boats with facilities such as water, a barbecue and a new toilet building. On a nearby field you will find two very fine shelters – please see visitaeroe.dk. Kleven Bådelaug owns the harbour and arranges annual activities such as midsummer bonfire, reliability races for motor boats and the annual call by the smack boats where you are guaranteed entertainment by the singing sailors ’Den Småborgerlige Sangforening’ and where

everybody is welcome – see the Calendar of Events The boat guild is also engaged in maintaining and modernising the harbour with respect for its exciting history. Even before approach of Kleven harbour you will meet reminders of its heydays as a winter lay-up area for a large part of the Ærø schooner fleet, namely the big stone heaps which obviously mark the channel but the purpose of which was to slow down drifting ice and thereby protect the laid-up ships. Ashore you can see other relics from the heydays of the harbour, one of which is a steam box used to bend planks for easier mounting of the outer planking of the ships to follow the shape of the ship. The site klevenhavn.dk will tell you (in Danish) about the heydays of the harbour, as a schooner haven – and as a base for smugglers.

Ærø Summer University Extension There is a very active committee on Ærø of the Danish University Extension. The committee arranges lectures during semesters. Information on these arrangements is available in the Calendar of Events and at folkeuniversitetet. dk/aeroe/. When summer is near, the committee extends an invitation to a four-day summer university extension course. This is a great chance to combine a visit to Ærø with stimulating lectures and a joyful time together. In 2017, ÆRØ SUMMER UNIVERSITY EXTENSION will take place at 12-15 June at HOTEL ÆRØHUS in ÆRØSKØBING. Theme for 2017 is 'The non-renounceable human' (lecture in Danish). Further information and registration by mail to vm@teo.au.dk or by phone to 26 40 16 42.

Island of Schools Ærø is a lovely holiday island, but also a real school island; on the island you will find a state school in Marstal and an independent school in Ærøskøbing. Ærø also holds a strong position within maritime education and training with Marstal Navigationsskole, Marstal Maritime Education Centre, leading in Denmark in relation to education of na­vigators for the merchant fleet, and in relation to specialist courses and e-learning in maritime subjects. Neighbours of the Maritime Centre is VUC, the adult education centre offering HF (Higher Preparatory Examination) in common subjects and »Blue HF« pre­paring the students for a maritime education. Ærø Efterskole in Tranderup, a test-free efterskole for young people interested in prac­tical work. Ærø also has the world’s smallest agricultural school, Poppelgårdens Praktiske Jordbrugs­sko­le, where students more into practical work are trained for a future in Danish farming. We also have a folk high school: Kunst­højskolen på Ærø, focusing on contemporary art. More details about the schools on Ærø are available from the Tourist Office. Expand your holidays to last the whole year; go to school on Ærø. But don’t wait too long, vacancies at the schools are limited.

Thick Ærø pancakes They are thick, airy and fried in plenty of lard, those Ærø pancakes – and they are divine. ’Løvtens Paa’kar’ is the old Ærø term – yeast pancakes that rise. Traditions around the pancakes are plentiful, recipes vary from one family to another and the accompaniment is difficult to agree on. Ærø Pancakes is an island speciality that dates back to an old original recipe. They are low-rise cakes, but very crispy, delicious and airy – a very specially delicious local dish! On Ærø they are often served at town fêtes and markets, but generally you may also ask for them in restaurants as desserts or with your coffee. Here is just one recipe on thick Ærø pancakes

Ærø Guide 2017

Ingredients: 5-6 dl milk 25g yeast 500g wheat flour 1 flat tsp salt 6 eggs 1 kg lard for cooking Procedure: Warm the milk and dissolve the yeast in the milk.

Place the batter in a warm place for rising for one hour, cover with a clean tea towel. Remember to use a big bowl.

Baking/Cooking: Fill the frying pan fairly full of lard and cook at fair heat. Add three cakes to the frying pan at a time.

First Birthday for Badehotel Harmonien 1st of June 2017 The 1st of June 2016 Badehotel Harmonien started a new life with new rooms, new restaurant and new pizzeria. It took almost 2 years to Monica and Jan to choose where and how to change their life from Stockholm to Ærø. Badehotel was Jan’s love at first sight, but he accepted to follow his wife everywhere on the island looking for properties for sale… Many pieces had to go into the right place together, but finally decision was enthusiastically taken! With the welcome, help and suggestions of SO MANY in the Community Badehotel Harmonien was born. With Federico’s professional help and organization the first wood oven Italian pizzeria opened at Ærø!

Come and celebrate with us: - the 1st of June 2017 10% discount on the Restaurant and Pizzeria No Take Away this day!! - book a room for 3 or more nights in week 22 and we offer you the 1st of June for free!!

Hvad er det, der gør en ø til noget særligt? Ifølge Jacques Berg ligger det hele i ankomst og afrejse. Ingenting bliver helt som før, når man har været på en ø og mærket den parakdoksale frihed indenfor det begrænsede område, som øen er... Køb, læs og nyd de smukke illustrationer i denne lille bog, hvor Jacques Berg sammenstiller Ærø med den lille franske ø Yeu, og finder at lighederne er større end forskellene. Bogen er rigt illustreret med fotos fra Ærø og Yeu af Valérie Loubet. Den danske tekstdel er krydret med akvareller af Jørn Ørum-Nielsen og den franske del med akvareller af Olivier Dumont.

In addition, you can buy draught beer, wine, 100% natural apple juice, bottled water and perhaps an aquavit or the Ærø speciality, a Riga (aquavit with Riga Black Balsam). You may also like coffee, perhaps with cake, cappuccino, café latte or hot chocolate with whipped cream or an ice cream dessert.

All the smoked fish dishes may be served with bread and butter, green salad or potato salad or perhaps also with chips, if you cannot resist temptation.

Oven-baked fish fillet or warm fish cake with chips and remoulade, ready in only a few minutes.
