Aarhus Walking Tour
In Aarhus Viking ruins, modern architectures and stunning museums in perfect harmony are waiting for you: choose an Aarhus Walking Tour and discover this fascinating Danish city with a professional tour guide.
The historic center of Aarhus, known as the Den Gamle By (“old town”) is truly one of a kind: it is a real open-air museum with completely reconstructed neighborhoods as they looked like in various epoches – from the 16th century to the 1970s – with original buildings coming from all over the Denmark. Follow your private tour guide in this amazing stroll within townhouses with backyards, old workshops, markets and boutiques and find out how was the city life in recent and less-recent past.
Then your visit is probably going to continue in the nearby, where the most important monuments are. You’ll get enchanted by the architecture and frescoes of the St. Clement’s Cathedral, Denmark’s highest church not far from the old harbor, but also by the Rococò-style Marselisborg Palace, the royal family’s residence immersed in a green park. But you’ll also see many modernly-designed buildings, such as the Town-Hall (Rådhus), fine exaple of the Danish functionalist architecture, and the Iceberg complex, so-called because of is withe-and-blue colors and its pointed rooftops rising and plunging down like jagged peaks of ice.
And then, your local expert guide may decide to take you to the museums: learn more about Vikings by exploring the suggestive undergrounds of the Nordea Bank with the long-houses and their original stuff, go further to discover the first ages of humanity in the Moesgar Museum, where the famous 2,000-years-old “Graubelle Man” and ancient huts are collected, or retrace the Danish art history in the new ARoS Kunstmuseum, which is an artwork itself!
