In Aarhus you can easily reach most of the city's attractions on foot, and there are plenty to choose from. If you want to enjoy Aarhus’ beautiful natural surroundings, then within easy reach are the Marselisborg forest to the south and the Risskov woods to the north, with the beaches and the new urban harbour areas in between.

If you are new in town, the traditional and historical walks are a good way to get to know Aarhus, while you can also experience the city from rather different or unexpected angles – anything is possible! The highly trained guides from Service & Co. are at your disposal to help you customise a tour of city in whatever way you choose, and act as your guide thereafter. If you would rather explore the city on your own, then there are, of course, endless opportunities to do so.

Exploring Aarhus

You simply cannot avoid feeling the vibrancy in Aarhus which is a city undergoing rapid development, with culture and creativity blossoming forth.

In the Frederiksbjerg precinct, locally also known as 'the larder of Aarhus', you will find gorgeous specialist shops offering high-quality foods and designs, delicatessens, side-by-side with charming cafés, classic Danish pubs, and excellent eating places.

Be sure also to go exploring the 'Latin Quarter' in the heart of Aarhus. With its narrow cobblestone streets, cafés and small shops it is almost like being in Paris on a lovely summer’s day.

You can visit the large number of interesting museums where you can both be entertained and learn something new. Immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere in the shops and cafés, in the streets and lanes, where you can clearly feel that Aarhus is an old city steeped in a long and fascinating history.
