Aero — 2 nights

Most visitors remember their trip to Aero by a unique blend of scenery, culture, history, and food.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Marstal Sofartsmuseum and Hammerichs Hus. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Aero Island and Skjoldnaes Fyr. The adventure continues: indulge your thirst for a good beer at AEro Brewery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Aeroskobing Kirke, take a leisurely stroll along Marstal Havn og Marina, and see the interesting displays at Flaske Peters Samling.

Soenderborg — 3 nights

Sønderborg HistoryPrior to the Second Schleswig War of 1864, Sønderborg was situated in the Duchy of Schleswig, a Danish fief, so its history is properly included in the contentious history of Schleswig-Holstein. Start off your visit on the 22nd (Mon): examine the collection at Dybboel Banke History Centre, step into the grandiose world of Augustenborg Slot, then view the masterpieces at Augustiana, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Christianskirken. On the next day, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Graasten Slotskirke, take a peaceful walk through Graastenskovene, then see the interesting displays at Papirmuseets By, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Broager Kirke.
