The island of Ærø is renowned among film professionals for its accessibility and the complete ease with which props, gear, catering, hands, extras, volunteers and rare objects are mobilized. Numerous TV- and film productions have been effortlessly pulled off on Ærø, and the feedback from producers, directors, set designers and other professionals has always been unmistakably positive. Ærø and its citizens have a culture of lifting the load together: Local organizations, businesses and private individuals will help, back, find and lift whatever is needed at the drop of a hat. Ærø Tourism and Business Office is available with contacts, help and general assistance.
Ærø is connected to the mainland by 3 ferries to Fyn and Jylland and a tiny airport offering taxi- and chartered flights to almost any destination in Denmark and Northern Europe. Being in many ways a time warp, the island boasts some amazing rural locations and authentic townscapes; among others Ærøskøbing the quaint preservation town, crowned by the Europa Nostra hallmark.
