Each autumn the charming seaside town of Ebeltoft in Jutland plays host to the eponymous Ebel Festival, a classic harvest festival that celebrates the best of country and small-town life.
Choirs perform in the streets, vendors sell traditional Danish crafts and snacks from their stalls, and people stroll around enjoying the entertainment and atmosphere of a festival that perfectly captures the Danish ideal of hygge.
Like any good fall fair, the Ebel Festival has a strong focus on freshly-picked food, especially the apple. Denmark has over 300 types of apple, while Ebeltoft itself has over 350 apple trees, making the festival here the perfect place to celebrate this versatile and delicious fruit.
The Ebel Fesitval offers you a chance to enjoy apple pastries, apple candy, cider from fresh-pressed apples, apple brandy, apple vinegar, apple snaps, and many other delicious and occasionally unexpected apple delicacies.
Ebeltoft is a one-hour drive or bus ride from Aarhus, and can easily be visited on a day trip from the city.
