Parks and Green Spaces in the Aarhus Region

Photo: Photopop, VisitAarhus

The green Aarhus Region has large, recreational woodlands, idyllic lakes perfect for bathing, and stunning castles that look as if they have come right out of a fairy tale. And they are all well worth a visit at all times of the year.

Castle Parks

Castle parks are fascinating. They are usually very well-looked after and grand, and at the same time they have a long history that displays how noble families have lived their lives years ago. Furthermore, they allow you to get close to the spectacular, old castles and manors that the parks belong to.
