“We had a fantastic home exchange in Danmark. I would recommend the house as it is in a nice neighborhood and a short walk to all the local amenities and shops in the small town of Galten. The house is spacious and clean and has every modern convenience. It was lovely to meet Julie and Jakob and the family before the start to Austria. We were also able to visit Aarhus, Silkeborg, Odensee or the beaches from the "Nordsee" and the Kattegat which is near. Julie and Jakob left lots of information for us in the house. Galten was very practical, modern and really clean and have a excellent bakery. Its also a good place to ride the bike. A very successful exchange. Thanks. Klaus, Anna and Sophie”

Where is it?
Galten is a small village - only 20 min. from Aarhus. Here are a small number of stores and 4 supermarkets. There is a small cinema, a restaurant and a library.
Aarhus is the second biggest city in Denmark (also known as the city of smiles).
Here you find both museums, restaurants and lots of activities.
There are also som beautiful beaches in Aarhus.
Silkeborg (also about 20 minutes drive) is a very pretty city - and in this neighborhood you find the biggest hill in Denmark (a rather flat country). There are some beautiful lakes in the middle of Silkeborg, where there are lots of tourboat activities.
Of course there are lots of Lakes to bathe in in Silkeborg as well.
Copenhagen is only 2,5-3 hours away..
