Thank you polyesco.
I love the photo of Vincent and Josephine on the Dannebrog - Josephine's little smile is too cute, she turned around just at the right moment!
I wonder if Frederik is doing some of the sailing since he was in the navy and IIRC also has a personal interest in sailing. I can imagine they have a captain but it would be fun to think that Frederik was sailing himself.

I don't know what they may have been seeing on Falster, but the museums in Aarhus are of course familiar to me.

Aros is the main art museum there. It's very popular among the locals, because they present art in a way so even laymen (and children) appreciate it.

The hyper modern Moesgaard Museum exhibits details about Denmarks early past. From the Stoneage onwards. and it includes a bog mummy. The Grauballe Man - the worlds best preserved bog mummy and I dare say after Ötsil also one of the most thoroughly examined corpses from that period.
He was killed for whatever reason and placed or dumped in a bog after his death around 290 BC. He was 34 years old.
You can read a little about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grauballe_Man
He must have fascinated M&F's children, while no doubt also finding him a bit spooky!

His colleague, the Tollund Man, was by all accounts sacrificed and tenderly laid to rest in a bog. He too was in his 30's when he was killed around 405-384 BC.

Being an ethnographic museum it depicts vividly how the first Danes looked like: https://videnskab.dk/sites/default/f...g_6702_2_0.jpg
In fact this gentleman may have been here before the Danes came.

I have also updated the map I uploaded previously:

Hmm, I wouldn't think he is 35 based on that picture. I am not even sure that he looks younger... Different, but not necessarily younger. You can clearly see that he has aged a bit over the last 15 years .

Thanks, Polyesco.

From the text we learn that M&F and a few friends boarded Dannebrog Friday, for a four day cruise.
The went aboard near Fredensborg, sailed to Aarhus, where Frederik had an engagement in connection with the sailing championships there.
Then sailed across Aarhus Bay to Samsø.
- And we must deduce south along the coast of Jutland, around the south coast of Funen, visiting Lyø on the way. Across the belt to Lolland, and sailing towards Copenhagen from the south.

Lovely photos. Love that they gone on "unofficial" summer cruises abroad the Dannebrog enjoying Denmark and sharing pictures. The safari ones are really nice.

Here is the fully gallery of their summer photos, with some nice ones of the views too

I love how Isabella's top reads "ciao Bella"!
We've been spoilt with holiday photos of the family this summer. It's a great idea and should help keep paparazzi at bay as we're being fed with some more private content, a lot of which is taken by the family themselves.

Thanks to all who provided the links. This is what i call a great family holiday. I bet in years to come they will have many fond memories of this time.
Christian is growing up so fast.
I agree it is very kind of Mary to share her photos with us.
Also the family created a nice buzz for locals wherever they went.
Denmark has so much to offer. Tourism to these out of the way places may pick up a little especially from other Danes.

Billed Bladet provides a comprehensive coverage of the first half of M&F's holiday cruise with their children in this weeks issue.
(Link to scans will be posted in the Nikolai, Felix etc. thread later.)

Summary of article in Billed Bladet # 32, 2018.
Written by Ken Richter & Ulrik Ulriksen.

After having embarked Dannebrog from a harbor near Fredensborg the family arrived in Aarhus for the sailing championships that are currently taking place there. Here Frederik had an official duty to perform Saturday.
But while in Aarhus he took his family sightseeing.
They sailed into Marselisborg Marina (one of the three major marinas in Aarhus. Now Marselisborg has got the bragging rights, and they love it! I know several who have boats in that marina.) on a chaluppe from Dannebrog.
Then it was off for a two hour visit of Moesgaard Museum, a little further down the coast.
Moesgaard houses, apart from a bog mummy also permanent exhibition of prehistoric times, the Stone Age and Medieval times, as well as a themed temporary exhibition. Right now it's about the Mongol nomads around the time of Djengis Khan. - You may recall that Frederik went to Mongolia in his youth on a scientific expedition.
Here the family posed outside the museum.
The children liked the museum and Frederik told our reporter: "I haven't been here before, but it's a fantastic museum."

There is no mentioning of the family visiting the art museum Aros, but perhaps Mary went alone with the children? (Aros BTW is the old Danish name for Aarhus. While Aarhus is medieval and means a large stone building by the river, Aros may simply mean a settlement next to a river deep enough for ships to moor. - Now you have some trivia to bore someone with. )

The next day the family sailed across Aarhus Bay to the idyllic island of Samsø.
With them went Jeppe and Birgitte Handwerk and their children.
Samsø has a surprising number of small harbors, ideal for sailboats and motorboats, so Dannebrog anchoring off the coast and the chaluppe sailing into the harbor attracted a lot of attention!
And the whole visit was very well covered by the local newspaper. (More on that if I can find it.)
There is also a manor on Samsø, Brattingsborg, and the current owners, Irene and Anders Lassen received M&F and friends and presumably they were the ones who took them on a guided tour of the island in a local taxi.

The tour included a canal dug during Iron Age, right across the island from west-east. It was used to drag boats when the weather made it too difficult to sail around the island.
Then the family went to what is called the worlds largest labyrinth (don't know if that's true) where the family split up into two teams and competed about about being the first to reach the center. That includes questions that has to be answered in order for you to take a particular path. The themes were sport and Astrid Lindgren.
The family also visited the highest spot on the island (it's really not that high! 64 meters.) Ballebjerg.
After all this the family went to Brattingsborg Manor for lunch.
After lunch it was time for some bathing at a nearby beach. That was popular! So popular that the departure from Samsø was delayed a bit.

In the article there is a wonderful photo of a very cheeky looking Josephine, that I look very much forward to sharing with you!

And Ballen Harbor:

And this is the canal that was laboriously dug some 1.500 years ago by the islanders: https://copa.dk/roskilde-koege/wp-co...sams%C3%B8.jpg

- From a tourist point of view it may not be the sexiest attractions, but it provides a good picture of a typical Danish family getting to know their country, which is why I go into so many details.

------------------------
I tried to have a look at the local newspaper, Samsø Posten, but they require a subscription. I guess they need all the money they can get in order to stay in business.

That... shirt... is a must for the male fashion thread!

You are welcome, Hannelore.

The Skanderborg Festival is also known as the most beautiful festival in DK. The surroundings sure are scenic. But it's also different from other festivals in the distance, in every way, between performer and audience being smaller.
Difficult to explain. Perhaps the fact that the festival takes place in a forest makes it more intimate.
