Attractions in Aarhus
Aarhus is what you might call a small large city. The same can be said about Copenhagen, but Aarhus is an even smaller jewel. Even though Aarhus isn’t a giant city, it is not to be dismissed when talking about cultural and eventful cities. Aarhus is known as “the Paris of Denmark.” The reason for this is Aarhus’s many cultural experiences and exciting attractions. One you have reached Aarhus city Centre you are within walking distance to each attraction.
In Aarhus you can experience places such as:
- ARoS art museum
- Concert Hall Aarhus
- The Old Town
- Botanical Garden
- Marselisborg Palace
- Ceres Park & Arena
- Tivoli Friheden
If you are going to experience the amazing panorama view in the Rainbow at the top of the art museum ARoS, then you might as well drop by the Concert Hall or perhaps enjoy some time by the creek that runs through Aarhus’s shopping streets, which are full of cafés and shops. If you cross the creek, you are just around the corner from The Old Town, where you are invited to journey through Denmark’s past, beginning in the 1600s and ending in the 20th century. Next to The Old Town, treat yourself with a free experience at the Tropical Houses in the Botanical Garden where you can wander through four different climate zones and learn about botany and nature.
