CHILDREN UNDER 18 YEARS: FREE ADMISSION
No matter what you are looking for, you can be sure to find it in one of the large brand name shops or in the small shops carrying special product ranges.
The pedestrianised high street connects the Banegårdspladsen central station square with the street of Åboulevarden by the river, and there are also numerous places where you can take a break, enjoying a tasty hot dog, a delicious kebab, or perhaps a perfectly brewed coffee from one of the high street's prize-winning baristas.
Salling ROOFTOP boasts absolutely spectacular views, and on the roof terrace there is also a lush green conservatory with a bar and café where you can enjoy a delicious meal or a refreshing cocktail. Here is also one of the lounge areas, which are all perfect for chilling out in, and a stage where a DJ kicks off the weekend every Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the "Fredag på Toppen" event.
On top of the roof, 25 meters above the pedestrianised high street 'Strøget', you can step out on a glass platform – if you dare! – and enjoy marvellous views of Aarhus from above from new and spectacular angles. It is a perfectly unique experience, and a chance to find out if you are scared of heights or not!
You can also visit Salling ROOFGARDEN right next to Salling ROOFTOP. Here, you can explore walkways, platforms, imaginative benches, art and installations - as well as the breathtaking view over Aarhus.
Opening hours for the Salling ROOFTOP and the ROOFGARDEN are the same as the department store's; and admission to the roof terrace is free.
The church was originally called Skt. Nicolai Church and can tracked back to ca. 1000 on the basis of discovery of the crypt in the 1950s. There are three separate auditoria: the great central nave, the Chapel in the crypt, and the Abbey Church.
Built in 1060, the Crypt is the oldest ecclesiastical building in Aarhus, as well as being the oldest arched space in Scandinavia.
It's possible to get guided tours if you contact the church office.
On Sundays and holidays only opened for churchgoers.
When arriving in Aarhus by pleasure cruiser, you are calling at a port which not only played a critical role in the founding of the city all the way back in the Viking Era, but has also grown into the largest container-handling port in Denmark today – by far. In fact it handles more than 50 per cent of all containers arriving in Denmark.
In addition to being a highly active container-handling port, the Port of Aarhus is also home to some 150 private companies which, between them, employ thousands of people.
However, the harbour area in Aarhus is not only used for commercial purposes. A brand new city quarter is under construction, with modern architecture in marked contrast to the industrial harbour section. Within the next few years approximately 7,000 people will be occupying the new buildings, and some 12,000 additional jobs will be created within the Aarhus harbour area.
The new vibrating centre of the Aarhus port area is the impressive 'Dokk1' Mediaspace, which is home to institutions such as the city's Main Library and Citizens’ Services centre.
The Cathedral was built in Romanesque style in 1201. It was enlarged into its present form as a Gothic cathedral between 1450 and 1520, at which time it received its magnificent altarpiece by Bernt Notke, the font and frescoes. The cathedral is frequently used for concerts as well as normal services.
On Sundays and church days the Cathedral is only open for churchgoers.
You can see the opening hours of the church right here.
Our time has found its place in the museum. Queen Margrethe's Street, capturing a moment from the year 2014, is a bustling street with facade shops. Here, you'll discover a tanning salon, 7-Eleven, a bank, a pizzeria, and the legendary pub, Bent J, where the scent of smoke and spilled beer still lingers.
The 2014 street also features two apartments. Step inside the home of single woman Rikke and visit the rainbow family. Through interviews in the homes, meet the residents who share their lives, including stories about children, work, and everyday routines.
Travel back in time to the 1970s in a neighborhood with streets, apartments, shops, courtyards, and workshops from that era. In the 70s quarter, explore establishments like Pouls Radio, the radio and TV store, the convenience store, the butcher, the paint and wallpaper shop, the kindergarten, and the hairdresser. In the apartments, peek into the lives of a nuclear family, a collective, a hippie couple, and a single mother.
In the backyard, you'll find a Volkswagen and the plumber's Citroën – explore the moped workshop, scout meeting place, or backyard toilets adorned with the poetry of the time.
1950-1974: Welfare and Liberalism
Move on to 1927, where the city has become modern with cars, sidewalks, streetlights, telephone wires, and gable advertisements. The quarter in The Old Town has a hardware store, a bookstore, Schou's soap house, a post office, a telephone exchange, and several residences from before the 1930s crisis halted Denmark. Experience the authentic car dealership 'Automobilforretning Carl Christensen' with its own workshop.
Encounter beautiful vintage cars, exhibition spaces, a shop with spare parts, and workshops for engine renovation and bicycle repairs. Get up close to the infancy of motoring and learn about the various fascinating vehicles of the time.
Here, you'll meet The Old Town in H.C. Andersen's time and even further back with half-timbered structures and buildings from all over Denmark. The oldest part of The Old Town resembles a small Danish market town with houses, gardens, residences, shops, and workshops. These buildings originate from cities throughout Denmark and have been reconstructed in The Old Town.
From April onwards, you can encounter people dressed and working as in the old days throughout the year. They cook, chop wood, do handicrafts, or serve customers in the store. Stop and chat with the baker's assistant, farmhand, and street organ man, but be careful – you might be tasked with fetching water from the well or carrying waste to the dung heap.
Take a ride in the horse-drawn carriages or make a good deal in the historical shops. At Restaurant Gæstgivergården, enjoy a wide selection of warm and cold lunch dishes as well as open-faced sandwiches, all inspired by historical cookbooks.
Throughout the year, there are theme days, concerts, activities for children, and several special exhibitions at The Old Town. You'll also find several smaller museums.

FREE ADMISSION FOR EVERYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18
At Tivoli Friheden there is time and space for everyone. Time and space for fun. Time and space for music. And time and space for tradition.
Right in the heart of Aarhus, surrounded by beautiful nature, you will find the unique and historic park, which has been a respite and a haven for the city's citizens since 1904.
Whether it's summer, autumn or Christmas, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience at Tivoli Friheden. Tivoli Friheden is an amusement park that offers unforgettable experiences for the whole family.
Hjertekig is a 65-metre free fall tower and the highest in Denmark. The highly distinctive tower has changed the Aarhus skyline noticeably.
There are two ways that you can take the ‘jump’. The daring can take the free fall from the top and reach 5G acceleration. Or you can sit and enjoy the views while descending slowly and steadily, going round the tower all the way up and down.
If you are one of those who can't wait until the next adrenaline kick, then the Sky Tower at the Tivoli Friheden amusement park is exactly what you have been waiting for. This is certainly not for the faint-hearted. This is only for those with nerves of steel who are literally not afraid to leap into wild adventures.
Standing 40 meters above the ground, overlooking all of Aarhus, it is only the toughest of the tough who dare take the leap. Before you awaits the maddest free fall, where you reach a speed of up to 90 kilometres per hour before landing in the net. Only one question remains: Do you dare?
Get ready to spin and twirl if you want to try the new amusement 'Himmelrum'. The amusement allows you to defy gravity and forget time as it makes you feel alive!
Bille By (the city Bille) is an entire town for families with young children. Here you can take you very own driving license if you are between 5 and 8 years old and drive around in small electric cars. You can also take a breathtaking ride with "Bisværmen" which turns and twirls or try the ever-jumping Grasshopper. It is a blasts for the youngest ones!
And many other rides such as merry-go-rounds, air and boat swings, a Ferris wheel, roller coasters, ghost trains, free-fall towers and much more. Find out much more here.
Tivoli Friheden will be at the peak of its form during summer with very special concept gardens. The numerous activities cater to anyone regardless of age, and this makes the festival the perfect place for families to share an endless list of flower experiences.
There are restaurants to suit every taste and if you wish to bring your own picnic basket, there are BBQs and dining areas for this.
The garden section contains plants from the different habitats found in Denmark, placed in groups so you can see what grows where. There is also a special section containing the best known medicinal plants. A rockery situated in the centre of the Botanical Garden displays plants from many mountainous regions from the entire world.
You can find tables and benches in all parts of the garden so it is easy for you to sit and enjoy a packed lunch. If you bring a disposable grill, you can use the tables with a metal plate in the middle for the grill. The used grill goes in the special rubbish bins for disposable grills.
The Botanical Gardens originally started in 1873 as an experimental place for fruit trees and other useful plants. This place later became The Garden Society of Jutland with a pioneering spirit working hard to supply private gardens with healthy products worthy of cultivation.
Walking through The Botanical Gardens you will see the the Hessel Brook, a small outlet of Aarhus Stream, running a steepsided waterway from Aarhus Stream and Egaa Stream.
In the Botanical Garden you can enjoy collections of theme beds, bogs, beech woods and dunes.
In the Botanical Garden you can also visit the Tropical Houses which shows you suptropical and tropical plants.
The Botanical Garden is one of many impressive green areas in Aarhus.
Isbjerget is designed by a combination of two Danish, one Dutch and one French design studio. The building is designed to maximise the sea views from the 208 rental apartments. The building is broken up in a criss-cross pattern, reminiscent of breaking up floating icebergs.
Another detail of Isbjerget is that the peaks of the roofs rise and fall in peaks and valleys, creating a visual shift that also happens when you see icebergs in real life. All 208 apartments are different, while the Iceberg as a building has become a landmark for the city.
Discover Aarhus' new neighbourhood - Aarhus Ø. Take a little city tour and enjoy the area, see the new Lighthouse and enjoy a walk along the water - it's well worth it.
The ground in Marselisborg Forests is hilly with deep slopes. In some places the clay soil of the slopes has fallen down so that the trees lean towards the water.
Around 1820 the forests were badly overcut. Therefore the present trees have practically all been planted after this period. However, some conifers have been planted in this century.
Spread around the forests, especially in Moesgård Skov you will find a few 200-300 year old beech trees which have been preserved for aesthetic reasons. Today they are the breeding place for some species of birds brooding in caves.
The Marselisborg forest is one of Denmark’s most frequently visited nature resorts and is used for an endless list of ourdoor activities such as running and cycling events. Despite the forest’s rugged terrain, it is very well-suited for hiking, just as horseback riders come in large numbers, as the forest has marked off riding trails.
Furthermore, a 25 km mountainbike trail runs through the forest, and the mix of flat grit-paths and steep hills and descends adds to the diversity along the way and makes for a great experience for everyone.
