Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph points to the meaningful places around Denmark that stand a little closer to her heart.
The Garden Island
It’s little wonder that the island of Funen is considered a fairy tale place. In addition to its rolling hills, chocolate-box cottages and historic sites, Hans Christian Andersen was born here. The archipelago to the south is a haven for boaters and beachgoers alike, and it was in this area that Andrea spent her formative years. “If I didn’t live in Copenhagen, I’d live here. It’s one of Denmark’s most beautiful regions. To me, it’s synonymous with adventure and discovery: I lived here in my early twenties, but have always returned — albeit for short periods. There are so many interesting people who live here; artists, hippies and true characters. I recommend sailing around the South Fyn Archipelago and stopping for a burger at Jette’s Diner in Svendborg.”
