Easter Activities for the Entire Family in Aarhus

Easter Activities for the Entire Family

Bring your family to Aarhus for Easter and indulge in everything you have been missing all winter long. Something is in the air – the days have gotten longer and the rays of the sun feels warmer. It is time to go out and enjoy life and venture into great and fun experiences together. You will find no better time for this than Easter.

Big and Small Easter Activities

The museums are aware that Easter is a time for families to get together, and therefore they have put together a wide selection of exhibitions and activities that offer a fun and exciting experience for the entire family.


Enjoy Easter in Aarhus

Visit the cosy theme park Tivoli Friheden and try the roller coasters, rides, stalls, games and playgrounds. In the city’s many museums, you will find exhibitions that involve the visitors, while they communicate and display exciting stories. For instance you can visit Kunsthal Aarhus, where you can see innovative art, you can pop into the Natural History Museum Aarhus and 'guess an egg' – or come see the amazing view of the city through Your rainbow panorama on the roof top of the ARoS art museum. Do you want to feel the warm embrace of times past, when it was all about the collective ideology, freedom and nuclear families, you do not want to miss the 70’ies part of The Old Town.

Activities and Nature Right in your Backyard ...
