Aabenraa is in Southern Denmark close to the German border, it is actually incredibly amazingly close to the German border, and only a 35 minute drive and a short 35km distance from the Flensburg Danish/German border.
With same day document presentation and a short trip - you can be having breakfast at home in Germany, pop to Denmark to get married, and be home in time for tea!
Looking at it from the other way, it is 288km's from Copenhagen and it will take about 3h 12mins from the capital. There is a train station in both Aabenraa and also Copenhagen - making travel there by train easy if you are looking for another fast venue option and are arriving into Copenhagen.
The town itself is absolutely stunning, typically Danish and with a large port there you can enjoy the fresh air whilst eating fresh seafood and celebrating your ceremony.
Aabenraa is a direct translation of 'open beach', and from its kilometres of coast line you can see why! Aabenraa was known as a merchants town and grew through its industry of the production of hops. There is a large port in Aabenraa as it used to be a stopping point for lots of large cargo ships travelling across the Mediterranean.
The town hall is stunning!
