A land of light and art
It’s time to begin the long descent towards the south. The road is set in a rustic landscape, pale in colour and dotted with lush trees that stand out against the clear skies. Hundreds of kilometres later and we reach Ebeltoft, a town home to the surprising Glass Museum. The stars of this unusual museum are the plays on light, colours and reflections of the glass itself, which recreates a world of magic and wonder. From here it’s on to Aarhus, a university city with a young population, rich in art, history and culture. The historic centre is a wonderful open-air museum, home to age-old wooden buildings. Walking the narrow streets, we come across houses, stores and shops that still conserve the charm of a bygone era. The rest of the city combines the beauty of the ancient with the energy of the young. The old San Clemente cathedral, Denmark’s highest church, stands tall in the main square, surrounded by some of the city’s cultural reference points and in the vicinity of popular night spots. Now it’s time to get back on the bike and continue the on-the-road adventure.
