Our trip to Hven

On a summer day that weatherwise wasn't much one we went on a small sailing trip to the island of Hven in Øresund. The crew included a girlfriend that doesn't like sailing, my 85 year old grandfather and two 1,5 year old kids. We all had a blast.

The beautiful land scape of Hven with a view to Sweden in the horisont. And the famous yellow Hven rental bikes that there seems to be a ton of on the island (allthough the small island also had surprisingly many cars).
We first anchored in the small harbour in Kyrkbacken, paid our 40 kr. fee to dock there and had a wonderful breakfast on the beach just beside. Afterwards we wen't up to the small 1100-century church where the photo below was shot. Our boat is boat no .3 to the left from the white light tower in the middle of the picture.
We docked in another small harbour and had a good strong cup of coffee and the cake that Niels had made. Here's my grand father in his stylish yachts man outfit enjoying the coffee and the conversation.
We had a great trip with good strong 5-7 m/s winds - so allthough we didn't get much sun we had some nice sailing - even Niels who never had sailed before got to take control of the rudder and instantly after trying it declared that he wanted a boat on his own.

Did you get to see much of Uraniborg/Stjarneborg on Hven? I was wondering what their current state is...

i actually didn't - and it's my impression that it's ruins and nothing more...
