Aarhus City Denmark
Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city is packed with interesting and exciting places for visitors to explore. An elegant mix of quaint, historic charm and modern, cosmopolitan culture, there is plenty to see and do in Aarhus.
Known as the ‘city of cafes’, there are many places to enjoy a delicious coffee among the narrow streets of the town and there are also many bars, restaurants and shops to discover too. In the town centre you will also find the unique and controversial Åarhus Radhus (town hall), where the best views of the city can be had from the 60 metre clock tower. The Forhistorisk Museum Moesgard is also worth a visit, with its unique collection of prehistoric artefacts, including the town’s most famous inhabitant – 2,000-year-old Graubelle Man, found preserved in a nearby bog in 1952.
Den Gamle By (The Old Town) is a wonderful open-air museum with about 80 buildings from all over Denmark, dating from the 17th- and 18th-centuries, while a trip to the Arhus Kunstmuseum is also recommended.
