The Beauty of Bicycles in Aarhus

Bicycles in Denmark 9

Yeah, I’m going to get straight to the point here – this post is purely to showcase these photos of bicycles in Aarhus, Denmark. I visited Aarhus at the end of June and I absolutely loved it; not only is it a beautiful city, it’s full of warm people and fun things to do. It’s also full of bicycles, and I do love a good photo of a bicycle.

Much like Copenhagen, which I wrote a huge post about last week, Aarhus is totally bike-friendly. While I didn’t get a chance to ride a bike this time around, I have fond memories of cycling round Denmark from my last visit. What I did get a chance to do, however, was linger in cute little streets (if I put “cute” in that sentence, does “linger” get any less creepy of a word? I’m not sure) and take lots of photos of bicycles against pretty backdrops. Obviously that should be on every “must-do” list regarding Denmark. I’m not joking. It really should. The bicycles and the colourful houses and the cobblestones… oh, I melt.

Many thanks to VisitDenmark for hosting me.

Do you often ride bikes when you travel? Do you own one and/or cycle in your hometown?

    I love these photos! I also tend to take photos of bicycles and doorways while I travel because they are so simple and beautiful 🙂 Biking in Toronto can be a bit of an adventure, but in the summer it’s perfect!

      Yes, I do love the simplicity of the photos! I don’t think I’ve ever biked in Toronto, actually, but I imagine riding down some of those leafy green streets is lovely.

    I loved wandering Denmark when I was there, especially in Aarhus. You capture it’s streets so well, I think I need to make a trip back one of these days…

      Thank you Zalie! Yes, you know I love a good brightly-painted house. 🙂
