Our Neighbourhood

 Hammel, where we live is a town with almost 7.000 inhabitants. It is a peaceful town with several supermarkets, bakery, butcher and a small shopping street with clothing stores, sports store etc. Here is also a public indoor swimming pool and a small bowling centre.
Right outside the town (1 km) we have a forest with great opportunities for a walk.
Hammel is located 25 km. northwest of Aarhus which is the second largest town in Denmark, and right in the middle of Aarhus, Silkeborg, Randers and Viborg. 4 citys in middle / eastern jutland. There are busses from Hammel to all four citys.
Around Aarhus there are several beaches, which are were friendly to children. "Knuds sø" is a lake 15 km south of Hammel is also a great opportunity for a swim.
Aarhus: 
Aarhus is a very popular city with 250,000 inhabitants. It is particularly popular because it has all the attractions, that are the hallmarks of a big city with many cultural offerings such as art museums, natural history museum, Tivoli, and it's a shopping Mecca with many shops and a nice street and pedestrian areas. At the same time, it takes only few minutes to get out to both forest and beach, located around Aarhus. There is particular a deer forrest 5 min. from the center with deer and wild boar, where you can go between the deer.
In Aarhus is also Marselisborg Castle, where the Danish royal family each year is on holiday in a part of the summer.
One of the major attractions in Denmark: the "Old Town" is also located in Aarhus. It's quite a city which is built up of the original houses from 1600 – 1900 figures. There are live shows with many activities that you can spend a whole day to discover.

Silkeborg:
Silkeborg is a nice city located at "Gudenåen". "Gudenåen" is Denmarks longest river. Around Silkeborg and "Gudenåen" there is a great nature and it is possible to rent a canoe and paddle through the nature. It is also possible to sail on the river on a tourist boat trip. The area also contains the highest points in Denmark which certainly are not mountains. Himmelbjerget (Means: Sky mountain) one of the highest points (147 meters above see level) is worth a visit.  
Only an hour from Hammel is Lego land, which is a giant theme park built out of Lego. We also have several wildlife parks and zoos within an hour.
 
If you would like to see capital Copenhagen, it takes 3 hours by car and also it takes approx 3 hours by car, if you want to visit Hamburg, Germany.
