Sightseeing in Aarhus

Photo:Food Walk Aarhus&VisitAarhus

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! Highly trained guides 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.

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 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 explore the 'Latin Quarter' in the heart of Aarhus with its narrow cobblestone streets, cafés and small shops.

Visit the large number of interesting museums and 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.

Experience Aarhus on your own. Discover history, culture, buildings, attractions and much more. Enjoy your stay.
