Shopping in Aarhus
Aarhus is one of the Nordic region's best shopping cities. In the main street you will find one of Denmark's largest shopping centers, Bruun's Gallery, the department store Magasin du Nord, together with the city's oldest department store, Salling, and more than 150 shops. And once you are in the main street, you must remember to set aside time to visit the surrounding alleys Frederiksgade and Sct. Clemens Strait.
In Aarhus' oldest district, the Latin Quarter, you have the opportunity to make good bargains. Along cobbled streets you will find small, cute shops and the well-known designer brands. This is also where you will find several of the city's unique second-hand and vintage shops.
ARoS is one of Northern Europe's largest art museums and at the same time one of the most visited in Scandinavia. ARoS has also been awarded two stars in Michelin's tourist guide.
The Art Museum has an impressive, permanent collection of Danish art through 300 years and modern international art, in addition to several changing exhibitions throughout the year.
ARoS is perhaps best known for the iconic work of art by the Danish / Icelandic artist Olafur Eliassen, namely ‘Your Rainbow panorama’. The spectacular work of art stands on the roof of the museum and is a circular circle of 150 meters with glass in all the colors of the rainbow.
At Moesgaard Museum, the past is brought to life through groundbreaking interactive and digital exhibitions in magnificent architecture. Dramatic storytelling and first-class research means that the museum receives visits from both home and abroad. The museum has also been awarded three stars in Michelin's tourist guide.
Mosesgaard is a recognized, international attraction, not only because of the exhibitions and the museum's unique design, but also because of the magical nature that surrounds the museum. You can combine the museum visit with a walk in the beautiful forest landscape or along the beach.
The amusement park Tivoli Friheden is located in the heart of Aarhus. Here you get the best entertainment you can think of and a large selection of activities, regardless of age and preference. Take a trip up one of the wild roller coasters, swing around in the carousels, or keep your feet firmly planted on the ground with a concert experience, theater performance, and a good lunch in one of the restaurants.
Den Gamle By
I Den Gamle By kan du bli med på en fascinerende reise tilbake i tiden. Bygningene i byen er originale, og de er flyttet fra flere byer over hele Danmark, for så å gjenoppstå i Den Gamle By.
Ta en spasertur i gatene og se hus, butikker, hager, biler og arbeidsplasser akkurat slik de var på 1900-tallet. Byens skuespillere gir deg et unikt innblikk i hvordan folk levde, kledde seg, bodde og jobbet.
The Infinite Bridge
Pack your swimwear, hop on the bike and head out to The Infinite Bridge, which is less than 20 minutes outside the city center.
The bridge has become one of the most famous attractions in Aarhus. The circular bridge construction runs from the shoreline to Aarhus Bay, and is a cozy place to spend a day with friends or family in beautiful surroundings.
Note that the bridge is only open from May to October.
