The city also boasts several parks and green areas which are perfect for strolling in or for just sitting down on a bench to relax. The Old Town is located in the Botanical Gardens with its wonderful array of fascinating plants and trees.
The Memorial Park, which is in a wonderful location in front of the Marselisborg Palace leading down to the Bay of Aarhus, boasts vast lawns, huge old trees, the Rømer Garden with a wealth of flowers, and the monument to commemorate Danes who were killed as enlisted soldiers in the German army during WW1.
A stone’s throw from here lies the Marselisborg Palace Park which is open to the public when the Royal family is not in residence. The park, which has exceptional views of the bay, holds a fine collection of sculptures which are distributed throughout the park in an inspired and striking manner.
Both north and south of the city there are woodland areas which are perfect for strolling through, and both the local and the district councils organise nature walks in the area.
