Halfway up the northern coast of Ærø is the city of Ærøskøbing boasting two harbours.
The former commercial harbour can become quite crowded during the summer. There are a few mooring posts though most boats berth along the jam-packed quays, filled with many vessels berthing alongside each other. The harbour is extremely cosy and close to town.
On the harbour-front you will find the fishmongers serving both freshly caught and smoked fish. You can eat there or take it with you to eat on your boat. Remember to visit the old shipyard, which often has exhibitions and activities to offer.
Shopping. Ærøskøbing has nice grocery options, and you can also satisfy your shopping urge in the small shops selling peculiar arts and crafts, clothes and souvenirs.
Take your time, look at the quaint houses, enjoy the atmosphere, and buy an ice-cream cone or a draught beer in the cosy surroundings. If you go exploring outside the town centre, you will find many odd paths and alleyways where you may encounter a surprise or two.
The town museums tell the story of the centuries when shipping and trade were the primary occupations in this market town – besides the inland farming. The exhibition of bottle ships made by “Bottle Peter” is an absolute must-see.
Vesterstrand with the vividly coloured beach huts and a child-friendly beach is only a few minutes walk from the town and the harbour.
Free bus. If you want to get around Ærø, you have the advantage of the world’s cheapest buses – they are free and depart on an hourly basis.
Ærø guarantees you sunshine, tailwind and plenty of pleasant holiday memories.
