Explore the European capital of Culture and the mixture of the old city

The European Capital of Culture, the hot spot of the province. Yes there are many names for Aarhus, all well deserved.

First we visit 'Den Gamle By' (The Old Town), a unique attraction that will take us on a fascinating journey back in time. Here you will meet people dressed and acting as folk did at the end of the 19th century. See how people lived and worked in 1927 and take a walk through a section of a 1970s town. Denmark; complete with streets, townhouses, shops, backyards, and workshops, re-erected exactly as they did in the past.

After that we will take a tour to include many of the more important structures of the city, not to be missed are its: modern museum ARoS, one of the largest museums in Northern Europe whose roof offers a panoramic view of the city. St. Clemens Cathedral built in the Romanesque style in 1201. The rather unusual Town Hall, designed by Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller.

These are just a few of the exciting attractions awaiting you in Denmark's second city.


From the centre of Aarhus we make our way to 'The Old Town'. A museum set up as a town with old buildings from across Denmark. Here history comes alive, see people working old, long forgotten crafts.

Returning to the city centre we take a look at:
- Aros. The Art museum, where if time permits we can take in the panoramic view of the city
- The town hall, designed by one of Denmark's foremost, early 20 century, architects, Arne Jacobsen
- Cathedral, the longest and tallest church in Denmark. If there are no services taking place, we'll take a peep inside
- Railway station, serving the whole of the country, has a connected shopping centre with 93 shops
