Aarhus

Aarhus – Denmark’s second city is on the Jutland peninsula’s east coast.

 

It’s about a 2 hour drive from Frederikshavn and only 45 minutes from Djurs Sommerland.  Aarhus is small but mighty! A city steeped in history with great sights and attractions all within easy reach of each other – you can easily go from town to beach or from harbour to forest in no time! With its mixture of youthful energy and a living history, Aarhus is a dynamic city. Enjoy relaxed moments in cozy cafés, stroll around the hip Latin Quarter and explore the city that has it all! Do as Danes do and hop on a bike to explore Aarhus.

 

Aarhus Ø is the redeveloped harbour area. Here you’ll find cutting-edge buildings like The Iceberg and the Dokk 1 Cultural Centre, you’ll also find hidden bars, you can swim at the harbour baths and you can take a green kayak out for free. Aarhus is full of cultural experiences and even better - many of them are completely free. All museums in Aarhus have free admission for everyone under 18 years of age. Don’t forget to purchase your AarhusCard before you visit as you’ll get free admission to attractions, free transport by city bus and the local train Letbanen, as well as discounts at selected shops. Parking is also free with the card.

 

Do you love shopping? If so, you will love Aarhus as it’s been called the Nordic region's best shopping city! Aarhus offers fantastic department stores such as Salling (don’t miss the lively rooftop bar) and Magasin, which have everything in Danish design and international brands. Bruuns Galleri has over 90 shops, cafés and a cinema. The Frederiksbjerg area is known for its specialty goods and the design of local artisans.  Godsbanen is a cluster of industrial buildings in a former railway freight yard and is now home to creative businesses and spaces, including design firms, theatres and workshops – take in the impressive views from the top.

 

The food experience in Aarhus is outstanding.  The city’s Michelin-starred restaurants rightfully give Aarhus its place on the world stage in gastronomy -  the city's many creative gourmet chefs know how to delight and create dining experiences you’ll simply savour.  Aarhus’ Street Food Market is a great place to enjoy amazing food and meet and mingle with the locals.

 

AroS Contemporary Art Museum is an iconic spot with works by Carsten Höller, Bill Viola and Andy Warhol. Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s “Your Rainbow Panorama” is not to be missed – the 150-metre-long circular walkway that sits like a crown above the roof of the building. Its rainbow-coloured glass panels reward visitors with stunning city views. The Old Town Open Air Museum is a charming place to visit. One of the country’s biggest attractions and a place where you can walk through time and soak up Danish history. The Moesgaard Museum is an essential stop on any trip to Aarhus. A cool building with a superb collection that chronicles the origins of mankind and human civilisation – a particular highlight being the Grauballe Man, the world’s best-preserved Iron Age “bog body”. The Women's Museum, one of the world's few women's museums is located in Aarhus. The museum focuses on gender culture, gender issues, gender equality, body and sexuality. The museum's vision is to create curiosity and dialogue about the importance of gender. A visit to Stenomuseet (Stone Museum) and the Natural History Museum are also popular “must-dos” in Aarhus.

 

About 10 minutes from the centre of Aarhus is Marselisborg Castle. Its beautiful rose gardens are a delight to see. Don’t panic if you hear screams coming from the woods, it’s just thrill seekers loving the world’s highest freefall rides at the Tivoli Friheden Amusement Park which is located in the beautiful forest!
