A city well done

A city well done Think of Hamburg the way people like their burgers cooked – some like it juicy, others a bit more cooked. Hamburg tempts visitors with a taste of both. With a population only exceeded by Berlin, Hamburgers have been, well – burnt, for much of its 1000+ year history. Nearly destroyed during World War II, the city has come back better than before. With 1400 parks and gardens and surrounded by water, the city has gone from almost gone to green. One of the best ways to discover this recovery is by boat. Cruise the river Alster, gliding past enchanting gardens and canal-side mansions. See what's caught in the waters at the open-air Altona fish market on Sundays, which dates back to 1703. Get there early – like, 5:30 am – and prepare to bargain with vendors. Learn more about Hamburg

Denmark’s second place winner

Denmark’s second place winner Some would find being called second an insult. But not in Arhus, Denmark. With Copenhagen so far east, many call Arhus the capital of the west. Resting in the center of the country, the city is the unofficial capital of Jutland, a peninsula of famed fjords and crystalline lakes. This is a young city, thanks to Arhus University, Denmark’s (here we go again) second oldest and second largest school after, you guessed it – University of Copenhagen. The school is considered one of the world's best and has an enrolment of nearly 40,000 students. This youthful influx created a natural base for all things cool and cultural. There are plenty of cafés where students gather to debate like true cognoscenti. At night, there are discos and amusement parks to stave off studying. When the students clear out in summer, festivals roll in. First held in 1988, Arhus' International Jazz Festival is a major Scandinavian music event and continues to grow in stature. Taking place at music venues, public squares and open-air spaces throughout the city, this week long program covers a wide range of musical styles ranging from traditional Dixieland jazz to electronic experimentation popular Danish singers thrown in for good measure. The highly esteemed Arhus Festival is not only recognized in Denmark, but all over Europe. First held in 1965, the fest has evolved into a major cultural event for ten days every end of August. The city's streets, alleys, stages and galleries teem with entertainment based on a different theme chosen each year. In 2005, the festival focused on the 200th anniversary of Hans Christian Andersen. In 2008, the theme was "Open City." No longer playing second, the festival is now the largest in Scandinavia! Consider Den Gamle By (Danish for "Old Town") also a first. This open-air village museum was the first of its kind when opened back in 1914. With over 3.5 million visitors a year, the museum consists of 75 historical buildings collected from 20 townships around Denmark. Many of this structures date from between 1550 to the late 19th century, and include bedrooms, kitchens, workshops, grocery stores, gardens, a post office, school and a theater. Museum staff take the roles of merchants, blacksmiths and the like, adding to the illusion of a "living" village. So while Arhus may not be the first destination on your list when purchasing a Eurail Scandinavia Pass, consider it a perfect stopover on your way to the rest of Northern Europe. This second city is a breath of fresh (cool) air. Learn more about Aarhus
