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 Skjoldnaes Fyr. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Aero Island and AEro Brewery. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Hammerichs Hus, pause for some serene contemplation at Aeroskobing Kirke, take in the waterfront at Marstal Havn og Marina, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Marstal Kirke.

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.
