Winter in Aarhus

Enjoy a Winter City Break in Aarhus, European Capital of Culture 2017

Winter is that cold time of year, perfect for enjoying the warm company of loved ones. This is the perfect time for you to pamper yourself and your partner with great experiences and a little extra luxury.

And Aarhus has it all – and this year Aarhus is European Capital of Culture 2017 and the city will be filled with events, culture, new experiences and collaborations across culture, cities and people. You can also enjoy the city’s peaceful retreats and experiences which are waiting to welcome you, the beautiful winter scenery of the forest, the serene trickle of the waves and the area’s endless list of indoor and outdoor activities.

Here, you can also enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the winter sun in one of the city’s cosy cafés and coffee houses, which are found side by side in the narrow streets of the city’s local quarters. At Åboulevarden you can enjoy an almost southern atmosphere of a lively buzz, relaxation and people chit-chatting, or you can enjoy the calmness found in the area’s streets and passages.
