Upon arrival into Billund on your KLM flight, pick up your rental car and head north to Aarhus. Your drive is approximately one hour fifteen minutes.
Although Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city, it is rather compact and easy to manage on foot. The city has a lively port, a pedestrian only canal area and the historic Latin Quarter. Møllestien is a residential cobblestone street lined with historic cottages each painted a lively color,
Your guide will meet you this afternoon to explore this charming city. Begin with a visit to Den Gamle By, an open air museum taking guests through three centuries of Danish history. Step into the homes and business of the past from the 1800s to 1920s and onto the 1970s. The 75+ historic buildings were relocated here from all over Denmark.
Your guide will also show you the Viking Museum, a small underground museum located on the former grounds of the city’s Viking origins. Artifacts were discovered in the 1960’s when the ground was dug for new buildings. In addition to the artifacts displays, you can see how Aarhus was developed over the past 1200 years.
Continue to ARos, the Aarhus Art Museum, which features Danish art from the past 300 years, highlighting the Danish Golden Age and Modernism. Be sure not to miss the rooftop exhibit created by Olafur Eliasson. The rainbow panorama is a circular walkway which provides great views of the city al in different hues of the rainbow.
This evening, we suggest exploring Aarhus Street Food, with its lively atmosphere and plenty of great options for delicious food. If looking for something a bit more upscale, the city has several Michelin star, Bib Gourmand and Michelin plate restaurants.
Afterwards, take a stroll along the harbor to see some stunning architecture- DOKK1, the Dome and the Iceberg.
