Frederiksbjerg shopping precinct
When visiting Aarhus you owe it to yourself to pay a visit to the Frederiksbjerg quarter which covers the streets of M.P. Bruunsgade, Jægergårdsgade, and Frederiks Allé. This quarter of the city is young and trend-setting. It is an area undergoing rapid development with new businesses popping up all the time. Locally the area has been called ‘the larder of Aarhus’ – and justifiably so.
Here you will find gorgeous specialist shops offering high-quality foods and delicatessens – side-by-side with charming cafés, classic Danish pubs, and excellent eating places. Jægergårdsgade – once a street of shabby pubs. Today there are a couple of the old wine bars left, and, in place of shabby pubs, lots of handicraft and design shops. There is an explosion of colours in the shops where they carry anything from Moroccan poufs to hand-thrown bowls.
You won't find a better selection in all of Aarhus when it comes to meat, wine and liquor, bread and cakes, and delicious specialties from all over the world. Pay a visit to Schweizer Bageriet, the best bakery in town, which has been here since 1897.
