Meet Mr. Drakenberg, Holy Niels and the White Ladies from Aarhus

Memorial Plaque Drakenberg

I will introduce you to mysterious persons from Aarhus in an attentive and informal way. I guarantee you will have an exiting city walk through central Aarhus.

Christian Jacobsen Drakenberg was said to be 140 years old when he died in 1772, Holy Niels was the son of King Knud and two white ladies both died because of love.

I'll tell you the captivating legends from the treasure chest containing mysterious Aarhus stories. The centre of Aarhus with the cathedral and the square, where punishment and executions took place in the Middle Ages is the keep of a lot of stories. I'll introduce you to the stories in combination with facts of what we see.

We can pass the Cathedral, the Teatre of Aarhus, the Church of Our lady, The Square and the river of Aarhus where the Vikings settled 1200 years ago. You have a say too where to go - just let me know.

Visits to the Cathedral and the small Viking museum can be arranged during weekdays.

The Cathedral must be booked 2 weeks ahead.

The Viking Museum is open Monday - Friday 10.15 - 17.00

Walking might involve cobblestoned streets. I recommend good shoes.
