ATTRACTIONS IN AARHUS FOR CHILDREN

Aarhus is the City of Smiles and always worth a visit! There is a lot to see in the city. The beautiful opening of the river and the view from the Aarhus Domkirke, the Cathedral, was unfortunately not included in the list, just as Aarhus Festuge is also something that makes Aarhus an interesting holiday destination.

In her youth, Trine lived here in Aarhus, and we have often visited the city with Ivan’s cousins, who has their grandfather in Aarhus. We are therefore quite well known in Aarhus and have made a list of the 10 best attractions for children in the city.

10 ATTRACTIONS FOR CHILDREN IN AARHUS

There are many exciting sights in Aarhus waiting to be visited. It is a good idea to plan at least some of the trip from home, because there is a lot to experience here. VisitAarhus provides lots of inspiration for sights and current events in the city. But among the experiences that you just have to bring home, there are:

DEN GAMLE BY – THE OLD TOWN

In Den Gamle By you can see how people lived in the old days. Here are many fine historic buildings, beautiful city gardens, working workshops, shops and a fantastic Toy Museum. There is free admission for children and young people under 18 years. The Botanical Garden, which Den Gamle By is adjacent to, is also a great experience with its many different plants. In the Greenhouses you can also see pirate fish and butterflies.

STRØGET – THE SHOPPING STREET

You haven’t been to Aarhus if you haven’t seen it from the glass ramp at the top of the department store Salling – and experienced the tinkling feeling in your stomach! From the platform you have a view over the shopping street in Aarhus and all the way down to Aarhus Domkirke, the cathedral, which is also worth a visit.

BAZAR VEST

Bazar Vest is a great experience for both children and adults. Here you can buy princess dresses that can make even The Queen envious, kebabs, plastic waterfalls and cheap fruits and vegetables.

TIVOLI FRIHEDEN

Tivoli Friheden is always worth a visit. Here there are wild rides, zombie hunting and quiet picnic areas. On Fridays there are concerts with Danish bands, and on Sundays there is entertainment for children.

DYREHAVEN

South of Aarhus City, in Thors Skov, is Dyrehaven, The Deer Park. Remember to collect chestnuts and acorns along the way, because here you can feed the sika deer or wild boar or just enjoy a day in the forest.

MOMU, MOESGAARD MUSEUM

MOMU or Moesgaard Museum contains one of Denmark’s greatest treasures from antiquity; this is where Grauballemanden lies. Walk around the Stave Church and the Viking houses and continue along Oldtidsstien down to Skovmøllen, which serves the best hot cocoa and freshly baked buns.

AROS

Children love the colorful prism in the art museum ARoS, which gives a fantastic view over the city, as you walk through the beautiful color changing landscape. The museum offers many experiences for children, and every Sunday there are guided tours especially for children.

BEACHES AND POOLS

If you need to dip your toes, there is either Den Permanente, the lake bath with forest and beach below Riis Skov or the city’s many beaches. In the old bathing establishment Spanien, in addition to a swim, you can enjoy the beautiful decor, where many of the fine details from the opening in 1933 are preserved. There are no water slides here, but you can visit Gellerupbadet, which also has a hot water pool for babies.

MINDEPARKEN

The park at Marselisborg Palace invites with its playground and large areas for fun and play. Marselisborg Palace is the summer residence of the Danish Queen HKH Margrethe, and there is a change of guard with the Royal Life Guard at 12 pm during the periods when the Queen is staying at the castle.

The Milling Hotel Ritz is a two-minute walk from the train station and a few minutes from the bus station and other city bus lines. The hotel is located right in the center with a short distance to the shopping streets, to Aarhus Street Food, the cinema and many of the sights mentioned here.

AN AFFORDABLE HOTEL IN AARHUS WITH A KITCHEN

When on holiday with children, it is nice to have access to a kitchen. If you want to save some money, you can make some of the meals at home. Also, a kitchen in the hotel room gives much more freedom. You don’t have to jump out of bed in the morning to race for the breakfast buffet, and small children who get up early can have breakfast right away.

ApartHotel Faber is located in a quiet area just behind the ARoS Art Museum and Musikhuset, and both the hotel rooms and the hotel apartments are equipped with a kitchen. The hotel is cheap by Aarhus standards, but you must also check yourself in, and there are no meals at the hotel.
