Windows for the Soul

Inside Looking In

Inside the priory of Our Lady Church, Aarhus, Denmark

Looking from a hallway into one of the rooms in the Vor Frue Kloster (Our Lady’s Priory), part of the  Vor Frue Kirke  (Our Lady Church) complex in Aarhus, Denmark. I couldn’t tell the purpose of the room from the brief glimpse through the slotted window. The priory was built by the Dominicans in 13th century.

Living in Orange Houses

Oozing Charm

Møllestien, Street of Charming, Painted Houses, Aarhus, Denmark

Møllestien (the mill lane) is an ancient street in the center of Aarhus, with origins dating back to the time of the Vikings.  Today’s Møllestien, with its small houses and cobblestone pavement, showcases 19th-century working class housing. It is regarded by many as the most beautiful street in Aarhus.  The area suffered a serious decline beginning in the 1920s, and by 1960 had become abandoned and derelict.  Plans to demolish the entire area were revised when artists and students renovated a short section of the street and painted the houses vibrant colors. Most of the existing houses were built between 1870 and 1885. Several of the houses can be rented by the night. Møllestien is in all the guidebooks. I found it a bit difficult to locate.
