Experience with mind and heart
Quality plays an ever bigger part in our lives. We no longer settle for second best. Everything should taste that little bit better, feel that little bit nicer and touch us that little bit deeper.
Your time has come
Whether you come for a short break with your partner to enjoy great meals in the open air and leisurely walks along the coastline of Skjoldnæs, or you have come with your children, or grandchildren, to spoil them with the most precious thing you can give them: your time; this small island has it all to offer.
You will find unspoiled nature at hand, and historical treasures accessible, for you to explore through excursions, picnics, searching for amber at the beach, crab-fishing, boating, museum visits and exhilarating expeditions of discovery.
Adventures and tales
Tales and cock-and-bull stories await you in every passage grave, at each quaint museum and aboard every creaky sailing ship.
Experience the colourful explorations of the departed seamen of Marstal, join in a treasure hunt for artefacts from the Bronze Age (many such have been found on Ærø, but there surely must still be more!), explore the riches of unspoiled nature and the lives of past Dukes of Ærø, presented as part of the programmes of Kiss the Frog og Søbygaard. Or have you got the bottle to hold one of the hundreds of bottle ships, carefully handcrafted by one man and now displayed at the Flaske Peter Museum in Ærøskøbing, in your hand. Endless possibilities await you, so take your time when exploring Ærø.
It’s for the tasting
The open air and exploration, makes for a healthy appetite. How about freshly caught plaice filet fried in butter, accompanied by a cold locally-brewed beer from Rise Brewery, at one of the many restaurants and inns on the island? While there, enjoy a chat with the host, as islanders are, in general, very open, helpful, friendly and chatty.
For the evening meal, take your pick: a simple, but extremely delicious, local stew accompanied by beet roots, a juicy café burger with homemade fries – or a special treat for the couple in love: a candle lit 5-course gourmet meal, made from fresh local produce accompanied by a good bottle of wine.
