Characteristic for the Aarhus region is its feel of authenticity and intimacy in everything you encounter. Aarhus is known from leading travel guides such as Michelin and Lonely Planet, media such as CNN, Le Figaro and The Guardian not to mention the international travel website Travel Lemmings; here, a jury consisting of the world’s top travel bloggers awarded the Aarhus region with the ’Emerging Destinations Award 2020’.
In the historical market town of Skanderborg, Adelgade – the main street – has a tempting new shopping centre and presents a colorful mix of modern concept stores, family-owned specialist shops and intriguing second-hand outlets.
Grenaa has been a market town since 1445, and today it is the largest commercial centre of Djursland with all types of specialty shops and supermarkets. Torvet, the centre of the town, unites three pedestrian streets, and you can dine at an outdoor restaurant in this area, weather permitting.
