Museums and parks in Aarhus
DOKK1 and the art museum AroS with the "Rainbow Panorama" are two of the must sees in Aarhus when it comes to art and culture. The city hall is a modernist marvel. But the biggest attraction in Aarhus might be Den Gamle By. Den Gamle By is a little town in its own. It consists of houses dating back to the 17th to 19th century and with a new section about the 1970s. Do you remember casette decks, analogue watches, the colour "harvest gold"? The posters of Che Guevara? Den Gamle by is a living museum, where you can travel back in time. Rigth next door you find The Botanical Gardens with the big greenhouses creating different climatezone, ranging from rainforrest to desert.
In the southern part of Aarhus we find Marselisborg, the summer residence for the Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark. Around the castle is Arboretum with trees from all around the world. If you continue south you pass Dyrehaven, an enclosure with deer and. Continue 3 miles through the Marselisborg Forrest and you will find Moesgaard Museum. In Moesgaard Museum you can explore many of the danish archeological finds, e.g. the best preserved bog body in the world, The Grauballe Man. Actually, the museum itself is a major sight in it's own right, a spectacular piece of modern architecture in concrete and grass, beutifully situated amond rolling hills, between the forest to the west and with a view over sparkling Kattegat to the east, and across you see Mols and Helgenæs. It doesn't get much better than this.
Aarhus city center
The city center of Aarhus has a lot of major and minor attractions to explore, as well as the cosy atmosphere in the small cobbled streets. The Cathedral of Aarhus is situated right in the middle of the historic Aarhus. The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Clement, the patreon saint of sailors, this coincides very well with Aarhus being the busiest port in Denmark. Right next to the Cathedral, we have Aarhus Theater, and just a little down the street is the River. The river bank in Aarhus city center is where you will find lots of cafés, bars and restaurants. During the summer the river bank is buzzing with life and young people enjoying time off from school or university.
