Aarhus is set on the seaside in East Jutland, and with its elegant old town, it’s a pleasure to stroll. Cycle tours are also a great way to see the compact city, and you can borrow a City Bike free of charge. Try taking a bike tour of the area’s outstanding museums, including the ARoS art museum, and then pedal to Den Gamle By—the historic open air museum that houses buildings dating from the 16th century.

    Aarhus also offers opportunities for reflection, and you can hike the Havreballe Skov forest or catch an opera at the ultra-modern Concert Hall Aarhus.
