What to do in Aarhus Part 2

Another 4 places to visit in Aarhus. This time we are taking a walk around the city center.

For these 4 attractions I suggest you set aside 2 days.

5. Shopping Street

The street cannot be compared to the shopping street in Copenhagen, but it is worth visiting, especially if you are not used to having shops along the city center.

The shopping street starts at the Train Station or “Brunn’s Galleri” which is like a mall. And finishes at another mall: “Magasin”. Along the street that connected these 2 shopping centers, you will find mostly Danish brands, a few of the typical ones and coffee places.

6. Salling Rooftop

Salling is another shopping center in the middle of the shopping street. At the top there is Salling Rooftop a clear glass floor so you can see the shopping street underneath.

From up there you can see the whole city while drinking a cup of coffee, or having a cocktail.

7. Botanical Gardens

Every time I went to the Botanical Gardens I absolutely adored it. Some people are reading some enjoying time with their families. It nice and warm, a change from the gloomy Danish weather.

Most times during the year, it is full of butterflies. And a really good thing- IT IS FREE!

8. Den Gamle By

My first couple apartment was right next to it, but only went 3 times. Some “houses” are added or changed from time to time so you still get to see new things.

Den Gamle By means “The Old Town” and is split into parts for each decade. In each section you can find Danish classic stores, some from where you can actually buy things, some just for you to see how it was back then. Apart from that, they keep building new sections for the most recent decades.

Den Gamle By is very close to The Botanical Gardens so I suggest making a day out of the both of them! Bring comfy shoes!

You can buy your ticket here or in person, it is 150DKK.

If you are not sure why my count starts at 5, check here my first 4 places to visit in Aarhus:
