Den Gamle Købmandsgaard's café is the place to meet new people and take in the unique and cozy Ærø-atmosphere. On Monday it is the designated hygge-spot for festival participants, a place where you’re welcome to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. The café serves coffee, homebaked cakes and a hearty lunch made on fresh local ingredients, warm bread, homemade chutneys and local produce in adult and children’s sizes.
The café is situated in the center of Ærøskøbing on the town square close to the church and other cafés and stores. It has a garden where one can sit outside.
Hygge-spots are Aeroe Rainbow’s designated spaces for meeting each other. As there is no festival grounds, hygge-spots are spaces where you can look out for other festival participants and hook up for a chat, to share a meal or just to be close by one another. You may use them as much or as little as needed. The owners of hygge-spots are aware that festival participants may choose to return to the designated hygge-spots several times during a day and therefore may not purchase something on each occasion.
