Aside from pure air and a relaxed pace, Ærøskøbing has charming ancient towns, delicious seafood, and a thriving arts and crafts sector. There's also a brewery, a distillery, and - wait for it – a cigar factory. What's not to enjoy about that?
Country roads weave across rolling farmland dotted with thatched-roofed, half-timbered homes and historic windmills. There's a strong maritime history, beaches with picturesque bathing huts, and the picture-perfect town of Ærøskøbing. The island is known as Europe's up-and-coming wedding capital, owing to its picturesque location as well as its "can-do" attitude about marrying foreigners with complicated paperwork.
