It’s the shortest day of the year… and the darkest.

And it’s quite easy to be a little moody, dive under a warm blanket and dream a little dream about the sunny summertime, coz oh lord, it’s dark and cold out there. 

But when was the last time you really experienced darkness? Like in real dark darkness? The kind of darkness where theres no artificial lights at all? 

At the Brorfelde Observatory in the Copenhagen Countryside, they treasure the darkness. In a degree that the darkness has been preserved. As the only place in Denmark. No street lamps or other artificial lightning are allowed in the 40 acres area, that used to host some of Europes best astronomers and telescope builders. Between the 1950’s and 1990’s they did some of the finest machinery for observing the sky.

Today the place is an exploratorium open the public. If you’re in for a very unique destination outside of Copenhagen, go head for the stars and the darkness in Brorfelde. I’ll be happy to take you. :)
