Ærø in Brief Ærø is a genuine island, without any brigde connection to the mainland, and is localed in the South of Funen Archipelago. Ærø covers an area of around 90 square kilometres and is approx. 30km long and up to 9km wide. The towns of Marstal, Ærøskøbing and Søby and the small villages dotted across the island are home to a majority of the islanders, numbering around 6,200. It is easy to reach Ærø, as the island is served by three ferry routes. If you are c oming from the south of Jutland, you would take the ferry from Fynshav on Als to Søby. From Funen, the island has connections from Fåborg to Søby and from Svendborg to Ærøskøbing. Moreover, you can now travel to Ærø at low fares! With the recent introduction of subsidies to island ferries in Denmark it is now considerably less costly to travel by sea between the mainland and Ærø most of the year. From Svendborg, the crossing takes 75 minutes, from Fynshav 70 minutes and from Fåborg just one hour. In 2018, the crossing between F ynshav and Søby will be served by Ellen, a brand-new and innovative electric car ferry.

ÆRØ GUIDE 2014 2018
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
For a lot if people, enjoyment is related to something you don't do – or don't manage to do – every day. A little escape from the humdrum life. Not necessarily something extravagant, but perhaps focussing on good things and »taking your time«. Maybe sleeping in and waking up slowly, enjoying a pleasant meal in good company, reading a good book in a comfortable chair, or indulging in a long and deep conversation. Taking a walk along unknown paths or biking along with no aim – taking a break on a bench and enjoying the views over the sea, or perhaps trying out your skills at skipping stones. Making new experiences – together. Easy going On Ærø, tranquillity comes to you almost automatically. The ferry crossing in itself creates not only a physical but also a mental distance to the humdrum back home. Even though we islanders usually say that the sea connects us, most visitors actually feel that the very crossing of the sea itself creates a pleasant distance from everyday life. There is a different »pulse« on an island. Not because the tempo is slower, just more relaxed. And you feel it in soul and body. Here, we take the time – to greet and wave, to chat on the street, to enjoy nature and one another. To breathe deeply and relax our shoulders.
philosophy of happiness known as »hygge«. In a world that seems to become more and more hurried, the need for slowing down and enjoing the more intimate things in life becomes ever more important. Danes long ago established themselves as a people in favour of calm and quiet and we are consequently at the top of the list of the happiest people on earth. Could this be because in Denmark we are capable of exercising »hygge«? And dare we claim that the Ærøislanders excel at »hygge«? What is hygge? Hygge as a concept only first appeared in Danish writings in the 18th century. Hygge is not associated with any distinct time of year, neither any particuliar room nor a certain time of day. You can hygge summer and winter, but hygge mostly occure when rain and wind rage outside. This contrast to the dark demonstrates the power of hygge: even during the cold months where our northern latitudes present little daylight, Danes remain among the happiest people in the world. »Hygge« has no literal translation into other languages and therefore it is almost impossible to precisely define the essence of hygge. A mental state Hygge is often described as a feeling or a mood. Simple explanations do not give
justice to the concept as it may be a combination of several moments: a hot bath, a cup of coffee in the morning, a lit candle on the table, a good book on the couch, a bonfire on the beach, friends around the dinner table. There are many examples of hygge. Hygge constitutes a major part of the Ærøislanders' consciousness. The Ærø islanders really know how to hygge, and value the little joys of life. This is the very source of happiness which shapes the island society – and which is in such demand by so many in the hustle and bustle of everyday life – and we are happy to share our Ærø lifestyle with you.
The sweet life Where other islands may be renowned for their potatoes, we on Ærø prefer the dessert, so to speak. Here you will find small local producers of candies and caramels, chocolate, liquorice and icecream, whisky & rum, beer and cigars – all made with the heart and by hand. For this is island living. Being here is a choice taken by the heart. Because we love being here – and we hope you will too. Ærø – essence of »hygge« »Hygge« is a natural part of life in Denmark, and the international interest in this concept has spread in recent years to other countries. Foreigners are fascinated by the Danish ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
– Maritime Traditions
Marstal is the largest town on Ærø and was in its heyday one of Denmark's biggest maritime centres, second only to the capital. The town's impressive maritime history can be seen and experienced everywhere. For centuries, Marstal ships have sailed the seven seas and shipping is still the lifeblood of the town with much activity – not least the Maritime Academy which for more than one hundred years has educated and trained navigators for the Danish merchant fleet. Marstal is love of life, sea and history. Marstal is not just another town in Denmark. Marstal is the sailors' town and home of the sailors. Marstal offers both life and nostalgia. Here, men walk tall and reflect on their historical pride of the days when their forefathers built the breakwater and fought the North Atlantic in all kinds of weather. The
town plan is made without a ruler and with the port as the centre of necessity. This is why all streets and snorrer (local for narrow paths) run from the main street towards the harbour and the sea. The harbour, now with its quiet life with men in blue chatting on the benches, not only tells the story of Marstal, but also Denmark, particularly of the two World Wars that grimly reaped so many victims from Ærø. For they were sailors and many sailed in Allied service. Those who returned home were treated with respect. »He was a war sailor«. No orders to pin on chests were needed here. It was universally known and respected. Those were the days, but history lives on. Just make a visit to the Marstal Maritime Museum, where the word museum does not give credit to the place. It's the sailors' treasury, and those that appear on the photos are not unknown people. »The woman with the big hat on the aft deck was my great-grandmother,« says the guide. The stage is set. Here one knows one's history. Marstal is not easy to describe. Marstal must be experienced. Visit the town for a couple of days and inhale the fresh, salty sea air. Read, »We, The Drowned« by Carsten Jensen, and Marstal will forever be bound to the sailor found deep in the souls of all Danes. And don't forget to partake in the local shot – Riga Balsam.
The tall ship era is over, but Marstal is still an active town with a varied business life and charming restaurants and cafés. By the harbour is a charming environment of narrow streets, maritime enterprises, skiffs, fishing nets, yachts and a few coasters. You will also want to make a visit to the church from 1738 with its pretty blue pews and see the triptych dating from 1881 and painted by the local painter J. E. Carl Rasmussen who actually had renowned Marstallers posing for the biblical scene »Christ Calming the Storm«. Visitors to the town will find fine overnight accommodation offered by the camping site, youth hostel, guest houses, and hotels. A popular local swimming spot is at the beach tongue of Eriks Hale with its lovely bathing huts and the fresh Baltic Sea to one side and the calm, low water of Det Lille Hav (»the little ocean«) towards the harbour on the other. If you take a walk on the sand banks at Eriks Hale, you will see Marstal from the seaside and get an impression of the sight that welcomed Homeward Bound sailors in the old days.
Frederiksøen and the Breakwater In the harbour of Marstal, in connection with the breakwater, lies Frederiksøen. Colloquially referred to as the Lime Kiln (Kalkovnen). The island was in use as a repair site for ships, until, in 1863, it was leased for lime burning. From 1825 and some years on, volunteers, local citizens and sailors, built the impressive boulder break water at the island.

- the fairytale town
In the middle of the northern coast of Ærø lies Ærøskøbing – Denmarks most well-preserved town of the 18th century. The town dates back to the early Middle Ages and in the year 2000 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. On the square are the two old town pumps that supplied the town with water right up till 1952. The old harbour has been expanded with 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 idyllic with its cobbled streets, Hollyhock, climbing roses, and the small, well-preserved houses with their many pecu-
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
liar details. Danish as well as foreign guidebooks describe the town as the Fairy-Tale Town. Don't forget though, it is not an idyllic facade, the town is alive, an 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 is the only one, that remains. 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, out of approximately 200 Danish sites, 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 in-
habitants 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 present-day residential housing – the result of the accumulated experience of genera tions, knowledge of housing and town planning. During the summer you can take an evening walk with the watchman and breath in history. During the guided town walk on the cobbled streets with their old houses, you will get a feeling of the old-time way of life, while the summer-night twilight sets the atmosphere of this Fairy-Tale Town.
The cooking house Aware of the risk of fire on board wooden ships, a resolution from 1787 banned the use of open fire. As a result, cooking houses were erected on the harbours. In 1810, »die Brückenkasse« (berthing-fee box) paid for a cooking house on Ærøskøbing harbour at the end of the 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, fishermen used it for boiling pitch for their yarn. In the 1850s the house was provided with a dormer where a small 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.

– on the top of Ærø
Ærø is not a big island. But you will be 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 over the world. The feeling of space is particularly felt on the north-western part of the island, centered around the town of Søby. With its versatile landscape, at the top of Ærø, that has positioned itself as an attractive spot for active holidays. Søby is Ærø's gateway to Europe. From here two ferry routes operate; to Fynshav on Als and to Faaborg on Funen. This is the home of Ærø's fishing fleet. And here you will find the biggest workplace on the island, Søby Shipyard, which creates life and activities in the small town. The harbour is the natural focal point and in Søby, visitors from the water way are welcomed by two pretty lighthouses. You may also enjoy the sight of young couples in love on the harbour, Søby is the place where most of the wedding couples travel to and from the wedding island of Ærø. Yachtsmen can delight in a modern marina with great views of the archipelago. Søby Marina has good facilities, and an espacially 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 Søby you will also find a beautiful church dating from 1745 at the top of the steep hill that shapes the town. Near the harbour is a bakery with café where bread and cakes are made from scratch using traditional ingredients. Dagli’ Brugsen (Co-op) has long opening hours and a large selection of locally produced goods, staple goods and fine bargains. Søby also offers bicycle rental, pub, holiday flats, B&Bs, furniture store and overlooking the busy environment of the harbour, Café Arthur. In July, you can join the town walk, »In Arthur's footsteps«. Please see page 53. From the top of the hill, Søby Windmill towers, the landmark of the town and a fine example of classic windmill culture from 1881. Søby offers lovely summer facilities for families, a challenging playground on the
feet – 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.
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 an 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 by
Cyclists can expect to be challenged in the area around Søby, where the hilly landscape has been nicknamed »the Alps of Ærø«. Several areas here will break a sweat, even on experienced cyclists. However, you are rewarded by the unrivalled sights over the island, the coast line and the small islands between Funen and Ærø. 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. Here also stands the old, photogenic Vitsø Mill.

Ærø’s villages are laid out like a string of pearls, along the main road. Drive through the village roads and enjoy the undisturbed bliss. Cows, horses and sheep graze on the fertile fields whose banks and hedgerows encircle the small well-kept houses and farms. Gardens with flowers and fruit trees adjoin the country road and in the ponds, 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 known as the second-longest village in Denmark and presents a string of exciting excursion targets. Several artists, for instance, have settled in the village with galleries and open
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
workshops with ceramics and jewellery. Bregninge has a large and different farm shop, open all year round. Furthermore, there are primitive camping sites for tents near the beach and tourists can even go horse riding. In 2010, Bregninge was nominated the first »Flourishing Village« in Denmark by the joint council of rural districts in Denmark. Vindeballe, Dunkær and Ommel have attractive, cosy inns with plenty of hygge. The many villages have their own authentic beauty. In addition, Skovby also has its own attraction, the Skovby Stone. It is believed to originate from between 1100 and 1400 and was found in 1994. The runic stone is now situated in »The Green Triangle« at the approach to the village.
Kragnæs is beautifully located between Gråsten Cove and the bay of Kløven. Prior to the damming of the Cove, this was the departure point for crossing the bay to West Ærø. Travelling the local bike route 92, one crosses the dam. In Kragnæs you can also visit a wellpreserved passage grave from 3200 BC. The village of Ommel boasts two harbours – Kleven and Strandbyen – both charming, authentic harbour environments with small boats. Popular and cheerful comments about Ommel make the village renouned for its round shape and labyrinthian streets – indeed an unusual and evocative environment with little shortcuts for the locals, but sometimes even islanders get lost.
One of Ærø's greatest attractions is its nature – the combination of soft beach lines towards the South-of-Funen Archipelago and wilder and more rugged coastlines to the Baltic, the undulating hills, the reclaimed coves and the impressive flora are unique. On Ærø, you are always close to nature which has a new expression every day of the year. Climate Islanders on Ærø often talk about the weather. This may not be a surprise, for weather and nature are quite special in the archipelago. The climate here is unusually mild. Ærø is one of the places in Denmark that is favoured with many annual sunshine hours. Indeed, it is not unusual to find plants in Ærø gardens that should not generally survive in Denmark. If you take a walk along Molestien in Ærøskøbing, you are bound to find exotic plants and flowers in the town's gardens and notice that general garden plants often develop remarkable sizes and richness. Springtime On Ærø, spring often comes suddenly. The island wakes up abruptly from winter's hibernation, and at a staggering speed, flowers burst into bloom on trees and bushes in a true symphony of colour. And every year, the rape seed fields set their beautiful yellow mark on large parts of the island. This is the time to make a halt and enjoy all the colours and scents and the warm winds, for the flowering is as brief and intense as it is beautiful. Shops, cafés and restaurants open for the season and the first yachts and tall ships begin putting into the ports. Summer Summer is the liveliest time on the island. Flowering hollyhocks decorate the old houses. The sun is high in the sky and the glitter of the sea makes the Archipelago sparkle. It is festival time, and towns and harbours are buzzing with people and music. Roadside stalls abound with local delicacies from luxuriant gardens. Galleries, farm shops and flea markets are open, and
everywhere cyclists challenge the island at a leisurely pace. The harbours are filled with yachts. The beach huts are in frequent use. Happy and merry times are spent on the beaches where the crystal clear water can become as emerald-green as on a post card from the Caribbian. Characteristic of Ærø is, however, that you are always able to find a peaceful spot on the island, and not even the many summer visitors can disturb the characteristic tranquillity. Autumn In late September, Ærø starts to become more calm. The air is more fresh. Sun rises get a soft and golden glow. The ground mist stays heavily over the fields. On mild days, the sky is clear and blue. Leaves change colour and trees and bushes abound with fruit and berries. Rain and wind get the wood stoves burning. Nature with its saturated colours invites you for long walks along fields and the sea. The entire island quietens down – it's time to relax! The autumn holidays of week 42 offers plenty of activities – further reading on page 40 Autumn Holidays on the island og dreams.
Winter The sea, warmed during summer, contributes to winter arriving on Ærø later than on the mainland. The winter period is the high season for club activities, and with over 180 associations, Ærø has something for everyone. This is the time for sports and games, singing, lectures, painting and evening classes. On Ærø, we cherish the old traditions of Christmas. Towns are decorated and every where you will find Christmas markets, concerts and an abundance of other activities. Christmas on Ærø is more about hygge than about the haste. There are candles in the window sills and the wood stoves are fired up. The aroma of cakes and cookies from old family recipes makes you feel good and is a highly appreciated change from frost biting your nose. Life returns to the streets; people have glögg and Danish doughnuts, and the festive lighting makes Christmas shopping on Ærø quite special. Winter is also time for reflection, and the many accommodations and restaurants »relax a bit« and recharge for the new season. But all year round you will always find both charming accommodation and good food on Ærø. ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Exploring the open country
Skjoldnæs Lighthouse and Næbbet On the northern tip of Ærø stands Skjoldnæs Lighthouse, one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the country. It was built in 1881 as a 22-metre tall, round building made of Bornholm granite. 57 steps lead to the watch room. The lantern is the central part of the lighthouse and it is extremely well preserved and completely intact from when it was originally built. From the gallery on the platform you have grand views. On a clear day one can see the Baltic, the Little Belt, and the South-of-Funen Archipelago. To the south, mainland Germany can dimly be seen. To the west is the island of Als and to the north you will see the islands of Lyø, Bjørnø and Avernakø with Fåborg and the Svanninge Hills in the background. The lighthouse on Ærø has a special reason for becoming one of the most impressive lighthouses in Denmark. After the defeat to the Prussians in 1864 and the loss of Schleswig, Ærø was administrated by the county of Svendborg. It was therefore decided to build an impressive lighthouse that could be seen as far as Kiel as a salute to our lost friends and families. 16
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Access to the lighthouse is from sunrise till sunset and at a very modest entrance fee. Around the lighthouse, one of Europe's most beautifully located seaside golf courses has been built. The interesting nature preserve ‘Næbbet’ reaches 300 metres into the sea from the low beach hill on the northern coast into the Archipelago. To biologists, this is one of Ærø's most significant and interesting areas for birdwatchers and botanists and it has great recreational value. The area between the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse and Næbbet is also a hotspot for anglers due to deep water and strong current. 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. It was not until 1964 that efficient drainage was achieved. 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 which were directly connected with the sea. In the soil are shells which disclose that this once was seabed. In 2009, a 150-hectare nature preservation area was established with a new lake of approx. 52 hectares surrounded by salt marshes and fresh-water meadows. Three bird islands have been set up in the lake to protect breeding birds from predators. The majority of the area is owned by Aage V. Jensen's Nature Foundation. 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 are part of 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 to you when you step out on the 33-metre tall upper terrace, where one terrace after the other create giant steps nearly all the way down to the beach. The slipping of the earth into terraces is caused by the layers that form the cliffs. The many sunshine hours on Ærø and the south-facing location of Voderup Klint provide the spot with optimal conditions for rich and varied flora and fauna. Voderup Klint is protected and Voderup as a whole is desig nated to become an international nature reserve under the Natura 2000 network. For instance you may be fortunate enough to hear the croaking of the fire-bellied toad in the months of May and July. The same time of year, the protected may orchid can be seen in the wetlands 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 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 on the next page. Gråsten Nor – from seabed to arable land in 24 years Until 1856, Ærø was in fact two islands connected by a narrow stone bar, the so-called ‘Drej’ (an old Danish word for isthmus). Between the two islands, West-Ærø and Little-Ærø, was a large shallow, 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 project 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 this is still the main function of the area, which is also the largest coherent meadowland in the area of Funen. Gråsten Nor is well worth a visit for everyone interested in nature. The pastures abound with animals and plants of great diversity according to season. Among the plants,
the beautiful and protected may orchid is perhaps the most conspicuous. It is found in many spots in the area, but particularly abundant in a meadow between Norvejen and the small wood Drejskoven. In just one hectare, there is a stand of more than 75,000 may orchids in bloom; probably the largest combined stand of wild orchids anywhere. It is in bloom during the last two weeks of May. In Gråsten Nor there is a marked-out trail of approx. 8km. You can walk the entire trail or parts of it as there are several starting 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 info-stands and a yellow box with information folders on the trail. The isthmuses Urehoved and Ommelshoved – see the island from the sea In addition to Eriks Hale in Marstal, Ærø has two characteristic isthmuses on the northern side of the island that break the landscape by stretching several kilometres into the sea. Urehoved at Ærøskøbing, and Ommelshoved at Ommel. There is something special about narrow isthmuses; the nearness to the sea on all sides, and on both of these it is possible to walk round the tips that provide fantastic views of the Archipelago and the north-facing coastlines of Ærø. From Urehoved you have a view of the beach huts on
Moraine cliffs at Voderup

ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Vesterstrand, the Borgnæs Bay and further along the hilly landscape towards Blakstens odde and all the way to the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse. From Ommelshoved you can look over the bay to Lilleø – a narrow line in the water of only 800 metres that was actually inhabited in the late 1800s – and Nevre where one of the most beautiful cycle tracks stretches on the water's edge between Ærøskøbing and the dam at Gråsten Nor. Seen from landward Ærø, the »heads« of the isthmuses almost resemble individual islands. Searching for fossils On the beaches of Ærø you may find fossils like vættelys (gnomes' candles or belemnites) and sea urchins. Vættelys are oblong, reddish-brown stones resembling a torpedo and originating from belemnites, a species of squid that lived in the Cretaceous Period. Fossil sea urchins are among the most beautiful stones on the beach. The full stones have a characteristic shape with a flat bottom and globular top, and the most beautiful ones are decorated with small shield-shaped flakes and a five-star pattern with clear lined dots. Many fossil sea urchins are around 65 million years old. In Denmark, fossil sea urchins are also known as thunderbolts. It was common folklore that these fossils were cast down from the heavens as lightning to protect you – and lightning never strikes twice! Several houses on Ærø have a jar in the window with these beautiful fossils. Ærø has around 80km coastline for you to explore. Both belemnites and sea urchins are common and they are easy to find if you look carefully. The hunt for fossils can make a trip to the beach a treat for
the whole family. Some beaches are better than others, and they can become a sport to find. Sankt Albert, Sjoen and the south coast around Voderup Klint are particularly good spots, other spots are for you to find. Have great fun with your treasure hunt on the beach! The hidden places On Ærø you will find the maritime pearls, Kleven and Strandbyen – both harbours for the village of Ommel – and both popular destinations for biking, hiking or kayak holidays on Ærø. In Strandbyen, you will find an authentic local environment with picturesque fisherman's sheds and a cheerful atmosphere. Strandbyen 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 child-friendly sandy beach. Here the locals meet on warm summer nights while the children romp around in the shallow water. The beach is a nice spot where you can rest and enjoy a peaceful moment, or sit and behold the Archipelago towards Langeland, Tåsinge and nearby Halmø where only one house stands. You may use the tables and benches, for your
own lunch. And a grass area with a small playground where possibly the island's biggest bramble bush grows – here you will find a profound wall of delicious, sweet berries in late summer. The harbour also has a stand with fishing nets for general use for children and childlike souls to go crab hunting in the shallows or if lucky find stickleback, sandhopper or pipefish at the breakwater. Kleven Havn is bigger. Here you will find a primitive camp site where you may put up your tent and enjoy the night, accompanied by only a light breeze and the seagulls. You will also find good facilities for visiting boats; 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 to be entertained by the singing sailors ’Den Småborgerlige Sangforening’ and where everybody is welcome. The boat guild is also engaged in maintaining and modernising the harbour with respect for its exciting history. Even before approaching Kleven harbour, you will see signs of its heyday as a winter lay-up area for a large part of the Ærø schooner fleet. The big stone
The island of Birkholm is located in the middle of the South-of-Funen Archipelago. The island is only 96 hectare and quite flat – Birkholms highest point is a mere 1.8m above sea level. The island boasts beautiful, old farms, beaches and great water with ample angling opportunities. Birkholm is one of the smallest inhabited islands in Denmark. Birkholm is part of Ærø municipality. A modern post boat operates twice daily to Birkholm from Marstal. Out of consideration for the dikes and the game, visitors to the island are requested to stay on roads and paths and to be careful to keep dogs on a leash. Ærøtours arranges day-trips to Birkholm including food and drink. Please see details at www.aeroetours.dk. For schedule and more info, please see www.birkholm-beboerforening.dk
heaps, which mark the sailingchannel, were positioned to slow down drifting ice and thereby protect the laid-up ships. Ashore you can see other relics from the heyday 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 heyday of the harbour, as a schooner haven and as a base for smugglers.
Ærø's past and history All over Ærø there are exciting traces of ancient times. More recent history, particularly under the duchies, is very interesting. The period ran from the 1300s until 1864, and along the way Ærø was united and divided into a number of enclaves. Ærø was outside the tariff barrier of the Danish kingdom and this created a basis for flourishing smuggling which constituted the profession for a vast number of islanders. In 1750, Ærø was unified into one administrative unit. A monument at Olde Mølle marks the unification. At this unification, practical consideration was made of the old Jutlandic Law from 1241 and even today some of the rules of that old law still apply on Ærø.
In terms of contemporaty history, the struggle for survival as a peripheral community has high priority. The cohesiveness of the Ærø islanders in this
respect was particularly evident in the year 2000 when a people's movement saved the Marstal Nautical Training Centre from closure.

For many people, their lifelong love of Ærø begins on the beach. The coastline helps to define an island, and the beaches on Ærø are enchanting; each in its own way. Ærø's three big towns all have child-friendly beaches with crystal clear water and soft 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 bust ling and cosy beach life. The beaches have clear skies that give you a feeling of room to yourselves. Water sports take place off the coast at all beaches – it is easy to move with to wind and weather if you wish to surf or sail, dive or paddle. Søby Strand Well sheltered in a bay is the beautiful little headland of Søby Strand and here is a very fine sandy sea bed and a wooden pier. The beach is a mere mussel's throw from playground, marina and café. Vesterstrand Just west of Ærøskøbing is Vesterstrand, only a few minutes' walk from marina and cam ping site. The fine sandy beach has a beauti20 ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
ful location towards Urehoved and boasts the small beach huts like coloured pearls on a string. This is child-friendly, shallow and there is a bathing jetty. 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 light a grill, some may find their SUP board or enjoy a last swim in the warm waves. Eriks Hale In the outskirts of Marstal is Eriks Hale, 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 cape: from one side you can swim in the calm, warm Lille Hav (Little Sea), a secluded, shallow bay between the harbour and the beach – and on the other side is the fresh Baltic Sea. Here are also the picturesque beach huts that sparkle side by side. Also the red thatched beach hut, which is a trade mark in Denmark, is located here – the very beach hut that appears on the cover of this version of the Ærø Guide. Eriks Hale also gives you the opportunity of a very special walk if you follow the isthmus to its end; this trip will take you past all of
the beautiful beach huts, and at the new breakwater into the Baltic at the tip of the isthmus, it turns 90 degrees and you can continue along the outside of the great pier to Kalkovnen on Frederiksøen. Take a break here close to the entry of the harbour and enjoy your packed lunch with the view of Marstal – before you continue your walk, for you will have to take the beautiful trip the same way back. Unless you are lucky to hail a passing boat and get a lift, as there is only a distance of 50m between Frederiksøen and the piers on the other side. A walk out of the ordinary of approx. 4km. Along the coast From Ærøskøbing and way out past Skovby, the most delicate and undisturbed beaches wind. Towards the unique 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. 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-

In principle, all beaches in Denmark are freeclothes beaches; however the location of the Risemark beach, its characteristics and accessibility all mean that many naturists enjoy visiting it. There is good parking at the beach. Risemark

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 positioning, 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 were 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. Further reading on the beach huts and their story can be found in danish, in the book »Badehusene – en fortælling om badelivet i Ærøskøbing«, also available from the Tourist Office, or join one of the guided tours – please see the calendar of events.
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. Christensen 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. The beach hut is private, but may be booked at: www.nostalgimarstal.dk/ strandhus.
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Island of Rambling 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 possibi lity of using your walking boots for a day or a few hours, there are countless possibilities. At the tourist office, maps and further information is available – along with information on how to combine your walks with the free buses on Ærø. We can also assist you with tips on accommodation and where to eat along or near the various walking routes. Here is a selection of experiences awaiting our rambling visitor: 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, and Ærø tempts you with 36 magnificent kilometres of this nature Trail. After its start in Søby, the Trail passes through Vitsø and continues past the historic ramparts near Søbygaard. From there, it runs 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, before winding its way over the hills at Stokkeby and from there along historic paths to Lille Rise, down through the marshland and on to Gråsten Nor. The last part of the walk passes through
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
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 buy a more detailed booklet about the entire Archipelago Trail. Coastal Trail Along the south side of Ærø near the coast is the »Coastal Trail«, its 30km mainly follows bicycle route 91. From the trail you can take a trip to the coast and to Voderup Klint Vitsø and Søbygaard Starting at Loddenbjerg plantation just outside Søby a splendid walking path runs through the reclaimed area of Vitsø and further on to Duke Hans’ hunting lodge, Søbygaard, with the impressive ramparts. In spring you can enjoy the many greylags and
other birds in the reclaimed area, go for a walk down to the beach and enjoy the view across the Baltic Sea to Als and Germany. The Trail at Gråsten Nor The signposted walking route is 8km long and takes the rambler through the largest connected meadow area in the Funen area. Gråsten Nor is a reclaimed sea area now providing the basis for a varied and exciting nature. In spring, this is where you will find the protected may orchids, more than 75,000 plants, as well as agile frog and green frog and here are hundreds of nesting birds. Both in spring and in the autumn the cove is an important resting place for numerous 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 Graven dal, you can also visit Duke Christian's Lounge. Pick up a folder on ’The Trail at Gråsten Nor’ and ’The Trail at Gravendal’ at the tourist office.
Ærø is cut out for biking holidays. The landscape is varied and the island has a suitable size so distances will never be too long. The local cycling routes 91 and 92 and the national cycling route N8 with their 66km wind along the coasts of Ærø, and you will be thrilled by the grand panoramas that are revealed as you go. Stop at the small road-side stalls to buy what Ærø's nature produces, or pop into the many galleries around on the island. Detailed cycling maps are for sale in 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 and beautiful nature on the other. At the Tourist Office you can get biking maps and buy 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.aeroetours.dk you can buy »bicycle packages« complete with ferry ticket, bicycle hire, route description and packed lunch. The local bicycle club also welcome guest
Ærø Loves Bicycles
riders to their training tours around the island. You will find training hours at www. flyingheroes.dk. Here you can also find inspiration for long training trips on racing bikes.

Out into nature
and active holidays
Ærø offers 80 km of widely varying coastline with fine opportunities for angling for sea trout, cod, garfish, mackerel, grey mullet and flatfish. On Ærø, you can angle from everywhere – and regardless of the weather, you will find a good angling spot with fine conditions within 15-20 minutes. Particularly, fly fishing is enjoyable on an island, because you can always find a spot with favourable winds. The island offers beautiful and varying nature with plenty of room for the angler – and not least many different kinds of fishing spots ranging from open coast to bays, coves, points and inlets. It is difficult to single out one place on Ærø, as it is possible to angle most of the year from all along the coasts. For example, the south-western part of Ærø is in fact one long angling spot. The south coast to the Baltic is characterised by deeper water, small points and many gravel bars. Favourite months are in spring and autumn. The north side to the Archipel-
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
ago is rather more shallow, and here angling is generally fine over winter. In the inlet Kløven you may be lucky to find a true sea trout eldorado during December-February. When water temperatures reach 7-8˚C, you may catch sea trout from all spots, both in the inlet and from the open coastline. All over the island are fine access roads to the coast and the angling spots. Sea trout angling during summer is best du ring the night, and particularly in the calm, white nights, angling on Ærø is a great experience. Ærø's north-westerly point around Skjoldnæs Lighthouse, where the water is deep and the current strong, is a fine summer spot. During the warm months of summer, particularly garfish is found along Danish coasts, and this is an entertaining fighter that takes largely any bait – therefore this is also a fine season for bringing the children along on a fishing trip as chances for a catch are great. Garfish is a fine fish to cook, at that.
Angling for flatfish is popular. It is both relaxing and cosy, and the whole family can join. Method and bait is simple; leger and worm, and you can catch plaice, dab and flounder all year round. Eating quality is best in late summer and autumn. The flatfish are often in the sand at the edge of seagrass and reefs that are clearly seen from the shore as dark patches. 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. The club also holds an annual fishing competition in the autumn with fine prizes where anglers from near and far meet for a sea trout weekend on Ærø. When fishing on Ærø you can find accommodation with good facilities such as a place for cleaning, additional freezer space, drying room for gear and clothes. At the tourist office you can buy the book »117 fine Funen
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 all have a maritime notion. On the harbour in Marstal, for instance, 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.

calm weather you can often see the mullets coming quite close to the beach in great flocks. You can even feed them with bread (an effective bait if you fish with a rod). It is a shy fish, but when you succeed in luring it,
it's worth all your troubles. Not to mention that the grey mullet is a fine eatable fish. So, to those of you with a bent towards angling or underwater hunting we dare say that Ærø is second to none!
Underwater hunting Ærø also offers grand experiences under the surface of the sea. It requires nothing but a pair of goggles for you to see for yourselves, and Ærø boasts an extraordinarily beautiful underwater world with a rich wildlife in the clear waters around the island. Underwater hunting has become increasingly popular in Denmark, and Ærø really offers impressive conditions with good visibility and varying seabed conditions. In the waters around Ærø you may get quite close to flatfish, cod, sea trout, garfish and grey mullet. Indeed, the grey mullet is fun to hunt with a harpoon. This is a summer visitor which passes by the Danish coasts from May to October. From the clifftops and in
Free busses If there is one single thing that both visitors and locals fully enjoy, it is the free buses on Ærø. Basically, the bus leaves once every hour, through beautiful landscapes and idyllic villages. From the bus stop at the harbour in Ærøskøbing it will take approx. 25 min. to go to Marstal or Søby. The bus route goes from Ærøskøbing to Marstal through the villages Lille Rise and Store Rise. Another route leaves Ærøskøbing to Søby, stopping at Stokkeby Landevej, Olde Mølle – and through the villages of Tranderup, Vindeballe, Breg-
ninge, Leby, and Skovby. (Some days du ring the week, there are two departures to the authentic fishing hamlets Ommel and Kragnæs).
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 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 for it. Bus stops where bikes may be taken along, are marked in the schedule. There are many options and with the buses of Ærø you only have to concentrate on enjoying the ride. See the schedule at www.aeroe-ferry.dk or www.jesperbus.dk.

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 out and back, particularly when it is windy, but the course in not physically demanding and is manageable for the regular golfer. The pleasure of playing golf on Ærø starts early during the beautiful trip to the Skjoldnæs Lighthouse which stands as a landmark for the course. The Ærø Golf club house is set in the charming old residence of the lighthouse manager. The course is open every day from sunrise to sunset. Please visit www.aeroegolf.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 views from each and every green, which make 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 be happy that an exemption was granted to lay out a coastal golf course on this very spot.

Particularly in summer, there are myriads 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
Windsurfing and Kitesurfing All year round, Ærø offers outstanding opportunities for windsurfers, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned surfer. A suitable surfing spot is never far. Kitesurfers will find good conditions both in Det Lille Hav (The Little Sea) at Eriks Hale in Marstal, in the inlet between Nevre and Ommelshoved, and at Uhrehoved 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.
See www.havkajakcenter-marstal.dk It is also 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. 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.
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.
Segway You can also discover Ærø from a Segway and give yourself a fun, different and unique experience. In the beautiful landscape around Vitsø, amidst some of the most unique nature of the island, you will find the longest nature track in Denmark. Segway Ærø also arranges guided segway tours starting from Ærøskøbing and Marstal. Here you may experience both town and beach while driving with a trained guide. See dates in the Calender of Events or read further at www.vitsoehus.dk.
Ærø Airfield Ærø Airfield (EKAE) was established in 1960 which makes it one of the oldest airfields in Denmark, and, at the same time, 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 Gråsten Nor, between Ærøskøbing and Marstal. AVGAS 100LL fuel is available against payment in cash, and you may hire a car as well as bicycles.Further info on Ærø Airfield by phone: (+45) 63 52 63 67.

Experiences of historical Ærø
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. Craftsmen and museum employees are wor king on creating a new and modern exhibition on Ærø's fascinating history and life on the island. Therefore Ærø Town Museum will be closed during all of 2018. When we open again, visitors will have answers to, e.g., what Bismarck has to do with Ærø, and why the islanders cook eggs on the beaches on Easter Saturday. 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 Hammerich (1893-1977) and has an impressive collection of antiques, including 3000
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
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 main buil ding 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
Ærø's national flag
Ærø has its own flag which originates from Duke Christian, Duke of Ærø from 1622 to 1633. The flag is described in the estate inventory after him. It says that it is was wound around a pole and measured 2.87m x 2.81m, after conversion from the Hanseatic measure. The standard was golden yellow, sea green and body coloured in 9 stripes. The three-striped Ærø flag appeared around 1960 – a modern version. In the 1600-hundreds, flags usually had multiple stripes. A reconstruction of the old standard can be seen at Søbygaard. 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. In addition a parking area has been built and there is a public path around the lake. In the area behind the barn is an open air stage and a nature playground. This is also the stage where the traditional and merry Ærø festival play is performed during week 28. 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. Take 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
The Old Yard
treasure hunts, dish recorder for birdcalls, nets for exploring animals and insects in the pond and much more – and grab a printed guide to help you safely through plenty of activities, such as woodlouse races, from grain to cake, and witch tricks. Opening hours for Kiss the Frog are the same as those for Søbygaard Flaske-Peters Samling (Bottle Peter's Collection) The bottle and model ship collection has been exhibited in the former poorhouse in Ærøskøbing since 1943. The collection holds more than 100-year old bottle ships and is the oldest collection of its kind in 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 as well as 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 diffe rent and exciting exhibition. The Old Yard – The Archipelago Restauration Center in Ærøskøbing Det Gamle Værft (The Old Shipyard) is a communicator of maritime cultural heritage and Danish artisan traditions. In the 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 redhot iron, in the copper 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. Restoration jobs are currently ongoing. Sometimes we take on old iron constructions for buildings, or over 100-yearold ship's accommodation, or we work for museums or for private people. Everyone at The Old Yard is looking forward to seeing you and to giving you a memorable experience. ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Marstal Maritime the Unique 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. Of course you enter a true maritime museum over a deck, quite the right adventure entrance to the wondrous world of the sea. Also here. The visitor comes aboard into the exhibitions on a sailing ship via the deck of the jagt-schooner HAABET with bulwark, capstan, mast, rig, hatches and deckhouse. In the cabin below it's a bit cramped for people of some calibre and visitors with some disability. On the other hand, disabled visitors can enjoy access to almost all other attractions in the museum and ramps and lifts are available in connection with the new building. Numbers of visitors are increasing, from the most experienced to the youngest generations. In the dinghy port of the museum courtyard children and childlike souls can climb the mast, enter small boats or take on 30 ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
a long voyage with the good ship S/S Martha. At certain times, children may »Build your own ship«. Indoors you will find big 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 passenger 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 of 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 voy-
ages 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. 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, 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. The motifs range from children playing,
women's boats, grouse hunters, Greenland voyagers, and kayaks in impressive Greenland nature, to the carrying home of a dead sealer. 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 first to depict the lives of Greenlanders, for instance through one of his major works Natives Dancing the Tag Dance from 1872 and Young Sealer in Kayak in Snow Drift from 1886, a painting which was 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 from the brig Peru of the Royal Greenland Company. Author Carsten Jensen has described the event in his novel »Last Journey«. 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 models that also include coasters and ferries. 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 five-
mast bark and training vessel KØBENHAVN, which perished without a trace in 1928 with a crew of 60 young trainees. The Dannebrog, the Royal Danish Yacht, is certainly also worth mentioning as well as the panoramic model of H. C. Christensen's Shipyard in the year 1900. If you kneel and view the scenery at quay level or at 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 Eriksens Plads, the museum area on the harbour in front of the museum. 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 one-kilometre long breakwater. The natural harbour has provided living 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 entire
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
town population – 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 sec-
tion most highly worth preservation. This is where Marstal Maritime Museum has moved in. Eriksen's Site is one of the bree ding 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 at your own risk as is the case in harbours and costal area in general. Welcome on board Danish seafaring!

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 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 little 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 10,000 cubic metres and another one of 75,000 cubic metres. The part of the h eating requirement that cannot not be covered by the sun comes from a 4 MW wood chip boiler and a 1.5 MW CO2 heat pump. 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). 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 Ever since the early 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 another three 2-MW turbines were erected and today these six turbines on the island between them gene rate more electricity than Ærø's total annual consumption. 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. Battery-powered Ferry In 2018, the battery-powered ferry, Ellen, will be inaugurated on the service between Søby and Fynshav on Als. The modern and innovative battery ferry is a world-class ground-breaking invention which is partly developed and built on Ærø. The ferry is powered 100% by batteries with a capacity of 4.3 MWh and the Ellen will cover a distance of up to 22 nautical miles between each re-charge, which is
seven times as far as any existing battery ferry. Follow the pioneering project at www. el-færgeprojekt.dk or on Facebook: »Den bæredygtige energiØ Ærø« (the sustainable energy island Ærø). Lake-source heating system at Søbygaard The moat and the lake at the manor house Søbygaard has been re-established and in that connection a lake-source heating system has been installed so that 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 of 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.

Ærø has seven churches, each with its own characteristics. The maritime strain is evident in several of the churches. Rise Church is Ærø’s oldest church with a history dating back to the 12th century. The old frescos have been uncovered in some of the churches, and here you are suddenly face to face with church art and religious apprehension of bygone ages. A distinctive feature of the churches in Rise, Tranderup and Bregninge is the circular churchyards. Please see the separate brochure on the churches. Get it from the tourist office. Marstal Church Carillon »Even though you cannot 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 people stop to listen whether they

r ecognise 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 enable 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 is right in the middle of town so everybody may enjoy the music. Sankt Albert’s Church At Vejsnæs Nakke, traces are seen of Sankt Albert’s Church (originally built as a fortress). The measurement of the restored site is approx. 60 x 30m and it consists of a grave up to three metres deep and powerful ramparts for defence purposes. The dating of the site is presumed to be Viking Age around the year 1000. In the 14th century the site was transformed, as a significant church was built on the spot. Around the church, some 50 graves have been uncovered, many of which are children’s graves. Other findings include a large number of coins which are dated to the time when the church was in use from around the mid 1300s up to the Reformation in 1536. After this, the church was closed down and eventually destroyed. A book is available from Ærø Museum.

Ærø - The Wedding Island Romance is flourishing on Ærø! In 2017, around 4500 couples said »I do« to one another on Ærø. The weddings take place all over the island, so you are more than likely to enjoy a wedding without invitation 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 townhall and wed couples in the Ærø nature – onshore, offshore and even in the air. The many weddings add to the very unique atmos phere 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 wedding island of Ærø is a success story that contributes 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 nationali-
ties and many LGBTQ 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 happy and festive atmosphere 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 2018
Creativity The art association, Ærø Kunstforening, was founded in 2003. It is a very active and dynamic association that offers its members a community around exhibition, development of ideas and presentation. The association has around 150 members – creative artists, craftsmen and people interested in arts and culture. The association arranges se veral public exhibitions and arrangements, including many exhibitions over summer in the Garden House of Dommergaarden in Ærøskøbing and in Minors Hjem at week 28.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,
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
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. On Ærø, galleries and workshops are open all over the island. Where there is a sign, guests are welcome to visit the creative artists 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.
Art in Søby all summer
Det Røde Pakhus in Marstal
During this summer it is possible to experience a sculpture exhibition in Søby with 50 sculptures spread across the city and at the harbor. The works are created by 24 professional artists, a group of students from the different art akademis and from »Kunsthøjskolen på Ærø«. The exhibition is public and for free, and it is the fifth time the biennial SommerSkulpturSøby is shown. You can find an information folder on where to find the skuptures at Søby Tourist Office. The catalog can be purchased in Dagli'Brugsen. The exhibition will be om display from 1th of June to the 1th of September. Supported by the State Art Foundation, the New Carlsberg Foundation and the Municipality of Ærø.
Pakhuset (the warehouse) is a newly started small art house on the harbour in Marstal – at Pakhusvej, right by the old ferry berth. The house is made available to the art association MARSTAL ART by the port and Ærø Municipality. The programme for the summer is about to be set up. The idea of the house is to present the island's artistic display in music and art. Anyone who feels for it can – at a modest rate – rent Pakhuset for an event of an artistic nature. During the summer period, in connection with the Culture Day in May in Marstal, there will be an exhibition of photos and weaving with inspiration from the harbour environment around the warehouse. Grafisk Værksted (graphic workshop), which is part of Ærø Art Association, will hold a week with graphic expressions with Lene & Jette as the facilitators. Jan Kiwi will hold his traditional exhibition with the themes of Mermaids of the Archipelago and Poems of Pictures. There are various »sociable cafés« in the making, such as whisky and rum tasting, conversations on culture on Ærø etc. It will all be spiced by music concerts during summer. Weather permitting, part of the arrangements will take place right outside the warehouse in the gravel area overlooking ships and the breakwater, with music for your ears and something cool for your throat. Please follow us in the programme posters in the glass signboard at the red warehouse or on Facebook/MARSTAL ART.

ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
for the senses
It may be the clean and clear air that makes scents and tastes appear so obvious on Ærø. You will find a Mecca of good sensory experiences. You will be taken back to times when you taste an old-fashioned candy or sniff old 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 products. On the island are 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 irre sistible smoked goods. Or how would you like to select your future steak directly from the field?
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
Ærø also offers a profusion of new-spun 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. Ærø's own butchery is located in the village of Dunkær, so that lam, goat, pig and cow may be slaughtered locally. On the harbour in Marstal, several fishermen will take orders and sell fresh fish directly from their boats. In the village of Rise you will find the island brewery, Rise Bryggeri, which offers a wide range of good beer, including organic beer. 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 to-
bacco 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 mer chant's house at the Town Square in Ærøs købing. 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. Across the street from here 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 which allow 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 29 May to 24 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. Ærø Ismageri (Ærø Ice Cream Makers) makes homemade ice cream from scratch. Hattesens Konfektfa brik on the harbour of Ærøskøbing produces hand-made liquorice allsorts of the fines quality according to old traditions. The great idea is: Less sugar, more taste! Den Gamle Købmandsgård (the old merchant's store) in Ærøskøbing is a gathering point for a major part of the varied produce from the island. The societies Ærø Fødevarenetværk and Økologiske Ærø gather the threads and are ready to provide more information on the producers on Ærø.

on the island of dreams Once the winds start howling and the clouds start 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 – regardless of weather and wind. Everyday life may easily produce a pressure of business; 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: Where children are children who can still enjoy purposeless playing for ever and ever, and where time will allow experiences 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! Find inspiration for your autumn holidays on Ærø: Subscribe to our newsletter on www.visitaeroe.dk. Find many fine autumn holiday arrangements in the Calendar of Events at www.visitaeroe.dk.

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. Renting a cottage will also provide ample space for grand pa rents 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: hygge! 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 events, such as Christmas Markets and »Local Friday«. 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 rush – but when it's about getting together around a hot cup of glögg, a Christmas tree to be lit, a Christmas biscuit to be baked or an angel to be cut. And the islanders on Ærø welcome visitors – also at Christmas.
Go island hopping with the island passport With the island passport you get lots of inspiration to visit the ferry-serviced Danish islands. Find the magic during the crossing, feel the breath of fresh air from the sea and enjoy peacefulness and tranquillity on the island. In the island passport you will find a description of the experiences you can make on the individual island, the ferry route, sailing distance and crossing time as well as the number of residents and the size of the island. In the island passport you can collect marks from the entire Danish Archipelago as
there will be a clipboard with a special pen on the ferry or in the port with a silhouette of the island. With the pen you can transfer the silhouette onto the island passport and you can then compete with your family and friends on who collects the winning number of island marks and experiences on the Danish islands. On Ærø you can make your official island-passport silhouette onboard the ferries or at the tourist office in Ærøskøbing where you can also buy the island passport.

Move to Ærø
Are you also dreaming about life on an island? Maybe your dream is not just a dream! Ærø is right at the foot of Denmark, and you are more than welcome with us. To people who contemplate settling on Ærø, it is often the possibility for a more simple and quiet life close to nature that gives them the idea to move here. Or a society where peace of mind, intimacy and kindness are essential. They wish to be part of something, a town, an association, a group where they feel that they are someone and have some value. They wish to leave their house in the morning and be met by the scent of sea and the neighbour who actually says hello and asks if they had a good sleep. And they wish to have the possibility of being at the beach with a lunch basket three minutes 44 ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
after work. To child families, they wish to give their children a childhood where they develop by being given responsibility in early age because life is safe here. You may have quite different reasons for wanting to live on the island, but no doubt there is room for you too. Most potential newcomers know Ærø as a place for holiday, and therefore they are also surprised when they find out that the small island where all these wishes can be met, also accommodates so many more opportunities. They realise the ample selection of possibilties for school, childcare and social care, and they are excited about the amplitude of association life and the many leisure activities, for people of all ages, whether
they are babies, teenagers, middle-aged or seniors. When it gets to jobs, there is a wide variety of trades in the island, but often the island invites initiative and creativity, which makes the entrepreneurial streak flourish with many people. Ærø is manageable but this does not mean that you are confined here. Ærø is capable of so much – and more. Move to Ærø – and give yourself a present for life.

An Ærø speciality – the renowned thick pancakes Ingredients: 5-6 dl of milk 25g of yeast 500g of wheat flour 1 teaspoon of salt 6 eggs 1 kg of lard for cooking
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 most 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 example of a recipe on thick Ærø pancakes
Warm the milk and dissolve the yeast in the milk. Separate the eggs and add the yolks, one at a time. Mix flour and salt into the pot. Whip the egg whites until stiff and fold them carefully into the mass. 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. Use a medium-size deep cooking spoon and bake till they turn golden brown on both sides. Take up the cakes and leave them on absorbent paper. Serve with compote of apple, rhubarb or gooseberries or with jam.
Island of schools Ærø is a lovely holiday island, but Ærø is also a modern island of schools; here you will find a state school in Marstal and an independent school in Ærøskøbing. On the island you will also find Marstal Navigationsskole, Marstal Maritime Education Centre, leading in Denmark in relation to education of navigators for the Danish merchant fleet, and leading in Denmark in relation to specialist courses and e-learning in maritime subjects. Neighbouring to the maritime centre is Ærø HF that offers two upper secondary youth education lines.

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.
ÆRØ GUIDE 2018
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 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« Copenhagen Piano Quartet

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 2018 concerts, 10 altogether, begin with a spring concert on 30 May, where the two guitar virtuoses, Lars Trier and Christian Sievert have invited the young cellist and soloist Cæcilie Trier, the daughter of Lars Trier, on to the stage. The programme presents
flamenco-inspired compositions and classical guitar standards. On 11 July, Søbygaard will welcome a musician of world fame; Alfredo Bernardini, the Italian oboist, is known as an international specialist in baroque oboe. He is leading the internationally renowned, Danish ensemble Concerto Copenhagen which, together with soprano Eline Soelmark and bass singer Jakob Bloch Jespersen, will unveil »Bach's unknown chamber operas«. A total of 11 musicians are on stage. Wednesday, 18 July, will present a programme of Slavic songs. Polish-born soprano Katarzyna Mizerny will sing together with mezzo soprano Helle Fabricius Grarup, accompanied on the piano by Bulgarian Galya Kolarova. The following Wednesday, 25 July, inspiring experience and youthful drive will come together when violinist and fellow, Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider, and young pianist, Kristoffer Hyldig, get together in the hall around sonatas for violin and piano, spiced with solo play by Bach and new music by Poul Ruders. On 1 August, the Friends of Søbygaard are proud to present the international ensemble, Copenhagen Piano Quartet, for the first time on Ærø. Two Danes, one from Czechoslovakia and one from Poland. The repertoire spans new and old, romantic and Viennese classical music. A true pleasure. The quartet consists of Neel Teilmann, piano, Benedikte Damgaard, violin, Kristina Fialova, viola, and Adam Stadnicki, cello. On 8 August we will welcome the young
super-talents, violinist Loussine Azizian with roots in Armenia and cellist, Italian Leonardo Sesenna on to the stage with sparkling temperamental interpretations. The programme will present works by Czech composer Martinu and Hungarian composer Kodály. Upand-coming stars. On 15 August; a string trio with singer! Never heard before on Ærø. Trio Sono, which has visited Søbygaard before to big rounds of applause, has teamed up with one of the future stars of the opera stage, young barytone Teit Kanstrup. Together, they will present Schumann's Fünf Lieder, composed over texts by Hans Christian Andersen. Trio Sono is: Julie Meile, violin, Karin Dalsgaard, cello, Astrid Christiansen, viola. On Wednesday 22 August, Nordlys, the Nordic chamber ensemble, will be on the island. Nordlys (=Northern Light) consists of Danish and Swedish musicians of high esteem on clarinet, violin, cello and piano. The repertoire spans from baroque music over the Romantic period to new and modern composition music. Musicians Viktor Wennesz, Christine Pryn, Carl-Oscar Østerlind and Kristoffer Hyldig will stay on the island till the following morning when they will repeat some of the evening' programme before an audience of Ærø children in 4th-5th grades in the Søbygaard Hall at 10 am. As tradition has it, the last summer concert will take place in candle light. The coming autumn will be marked by a cross-over event between jazz, classical and fidler/folk music. On 12 September the concert hall will be converted into a café with candelabras and decorated tables, when the trio, with Linnéa Villén, flute, Mads Vinding, bass, and Andreas Tophøj, violin, will play tuneful melodies from the Dano/Swedish treasure chest of enchanting popular songs and music. Welcome to the 19th season of the Søbygaard Concerts, 2018.

Andreas Tophøj, violin Opera Gala Concert on Ærø 30.06. In 2009, guidOpera performed for the first time in the ship yard hall belonging to Ebbes Bådebyggeri by Monica Fabricius in Marstal. It was »La Traviata«. The audience, the musicians and not least the singers were asto nished, because right here in the middle of the big yard hall, the acoustics were unique, so obviously this hall would be used again next time. The result was that, so far, the hall has housed nine operas, all staged by Guido Paevatalu and all with a team of the best singers in Denmark. Following »La traviata« were »La bohème«, »Carmen«, »Madame Butterfly«, »l'Elisir d'Amore«, »Barber of Seville«, »Tosca«, »Rigoletto«, »The Clowns« and »The Cloak«. Several sopranos have lost their lives on the stage, generally as a result of fierceful jealousy in the wake of stormy infatuations – or tuberculosis! However, there have also been numerous moments of great fun when the singers unwound with amusement in »l'Elisir d'Amore« and »the Barber of Seville«. See for yourself from the photos at www.operavenner.dk.
The summer of 2018 with be the tenth time that guidOpera performs opera on the harbour of Marstal, and, obviously, this calls for celebration and a gala concert under the heading »at the mercy of senses«, where the divas will appear exactly as divas in their grand dresses and the male singers' dress code will be white tie. It will be festive and amusing, but also serious and everything else, because operas display all feelings. Guido Paevatalu, who directs and manages the whole setup, characterises the concert as an »espresso« of the previous nine performances. The music will be introduced as the concert progresses so that everyone can follow the various stories and enjoy the highlights of the many operas. Among the singers will be Signe Asmussen, Niels Jørgen Riis and Guido Paevatalu. A five-piece orchestra under conductor Leif Greibe will accompany. Tickets are available from Ærø Tourist Office (+45) 62 52 13 00 or firstname.lastname@example.org and any remaining tickets will be sold at the entrance. There will be two ticket prices. Atickets at DKK 375 and B-tickets at DKK 325. The concert will take three hours including intermission. Single Folk Festival, Søby. Saturday, 28 July. At the traditional music festival in Søby you will find a wide selection of musical entertainment and as always the evening in the tent will have fine music for dancing. On Sunday, the festival traditionally ends with a musical service in Søby Church. Keep an eye on the programme and the latest updates in the events calendar at visitaeroe.dk.

Ærø Accordion festival
in the charming little hall of the rowers that opens up towards the marina with the moon and stars above. There will be the best sound professionals who ensure the perfect framework around the musicians. Music performed will include all genres from easy listening and sing-along to music by some of Northern Europe's most skilled soloists who will be playing music originating from Italy, France, Scandinavia and Brazil – music with sparkles. We can now reveal some of the main performers. From Sweden: Sveriges Cultband, Tunnbybälgarna under Börje Färm. From Norway: The Happy Skvett group, Strømmen Trekkspillsklub, Halden Trekkspillsklub, Kjell Harald Langhaug and Per Bredesen, Odd Arne Halaas and Reidar Dahle. From Denmark, just a few names as of now; Søren Brix, Mogens Bækgaard, Kristian Rusbjerg and many more highly skilled and highly favoured musicians – and of course a whole host of Danish amateurs to reflect the widespread love of the accordion. The audience will be cared for by a large host of volunteer helpers who will cater for hot meals both Friday and Saturday evening
with pork chops and roast suckling pig, respectively. There will be drinks at reasonable prices; sodas and two types of beer from our local Rise Brewery as well as coffee and the gen uine Ærø pancakes. This is quite the right atmosphere for tasting the local specialities. On Thursday evening, 24th May, Marstal Church will fill to capacity from around 6.30 pm of anticipatory residents and visitors, for at 7.30 pm the Silver Jubilee Festival is opened with the traditional church concert, where some of the most highly regarded soloists and groups from the 25-year period will perform for an hour or so. The festival proper opens on Friday afternoon at 1 pm – and between 3 pm and 4 pm we serve beer and wine in glasses at half price during the »Happy Hour« in the tent and the yacht club . Every 30 minute, new groups of musicians will step on to the two stages – this will add up to 98 set shows, plus an additional 10-15 shows in the rowing premises. In addition to the musicians, there will be folk-dance sessions where dancers are guided in traditional Scandinavian folk dances and a band is playing. We hope that, again this year, we will be able to end the festive weekend with the 40 young folk-dancers in traditional costumes! They are all students of the independent boarding school, Bernstorffsminde Efterskole, on Funen. A spectacular display of young enthusiasm accompanied by many of the musicians from the Silver Jubilee weekend. And remember that the ferries to Ærø are now at very low fares: e.g. two people with car and caravan, round trip, for under 500 DKK! – And do remember to book your crossing in good time. Au revoir, and see you at the Silver Jubilee Accordion Festival on Ærø! www.harmonikafestival.dk

To gange ø Deux fois île YEU
Hvad er det, der gør en ø til noget særligt? Ifølge Jacques 11.38 Berg ligger det 11/12/17 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.

You may also buy smoked goods (vacuum packed) to take home - and all smokehouse menus may be packed as take-away for your trip into nature on Ærø or for your ferry crossing.
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.
Ærøskøbing Røgeri serves fish fillet and chips without deep-fat frying – that’s why we call it no-frying zone.
From April to mid-October, seven days a week, Ærøskøbing Røgeri offers freshly smoked herring fillet, mackerel fillet, trout, salmon, halibut and butter mackerel or smoked shrimp with or without garlic – cured herring fillet or smoked eel.
