GOOD RESTAURANTS IN AARHUS
BRUNCH ON TOP OF SALLING
At the top of the department store Salling you will find a small oasis in the city. From the beautiful wooden terrace there is a view over the city, and if you are feeling brave, you can step out onto the small platform that floats over the shopping street. At Salling Rooftop you can start the day with a ‘Breakfast Board’ or a ‘Bruch Board’. If you come later, you can enjoy one of the great steaks, classic salads or sandwiches.

BEST PIZZA IN AARHUS
If you are looking for authentic Italian pizza, then visit Piccolina. The beautifully decorated pizza restaurant is located in Skolegyde, right between the Cathedral and Aarhus Harbor. Start with the antipasti board, with ham, sausages and cheeses. But don’t eat too much! All the pizzas taste heavenly, but we recommend that you try the house specialty: pizza with fresh truffles and pancetta.
HOT CHOCOLATE AT RESTAURANT SKOVMØLLEN
After a visit to MOMU, Moesgaard Museum, take a walk through the forest and go down to Restaurant Skovmøllen. I the weekend the place is full of Aarhusians, who all come for the hot cocoa, the home-baked buns and the cream cakes. Skovmøllen also serves smørrebrød, open sandwiches, and a great weekend bruch.
