Orø: Another world, close to the city written by Sarah Steinit
As part of our "Ødyssé", we have met many Copenhageners who want to go out and experience the Danish islands, but who think that it is still too expensive, too time-consuming and too difficult to get out to sniff for island life. If you are one of them, Orø is the answer. In less than an hour you can put the noise and bilos of the capital behind you, drive off on the motorway, spend 5 minutes on a cozy, small tow ferry and vupti, then you are on Orø.
With its 4 × 6 kilometers, Orø has a fairly manageable size, which makes the island ideal for cycling, just as a larger system of "footpaths" makes it possible to walk along the beautiful coast, find some of the coveted island tranquility and look towards Holbæk. , which suddenly seems a bit like another world.
