Home to Viking tribes in the ninth century, Aarhus has developed into one of Denmark's largest port cities. With a strategic location on the Bay of Aarhus, the city accommodates freight ships as well as leisure boats. From medieval landmarks like the Aarhus Cathedral to contemporary museums such as ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, there are plenty of attractions that highlight more than a millennium s worth of local culture.
The best place to explore the history of Aarhus is at The Old Town, which consists of dozens of restored buildings in diverse architectural styles including half-timber and Renaissance. After walking in the footsteps of Danish peasants, stroll the lush gardens of the Aarhus Botanical Gardens, which offers seasonal theater shows in a Greek-style amphitheater. Switch the focus from Old World charm to thrilling rides at the Tivoli Friheden theme park. After screaming on roller coasters, relax with a classical concert inside the Aarhus Concert Hall. Finish the day in Aarhus City Centre with a glass of red wine and dishes of savory Nordic cuisine.
Located just off Route 15, Aarhus Airport (AAR) is about a 30-minute drive from Aarhus. Summer temperatures in the East Jutland peninsula peak at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so fly to Aarhus during this season to enjoy outdoor events like the Aarhus International Jazz Festival and NorthSide Festival.
