  • A massively-impressive library, this community amenity also houses the very helpful tourist information desk and a café. Worth visiting for harbour views too.  more »
  • Yes - you can actually do that at Dokk1 - and look at the ferries to Zealand at the same time (or whatever else might interest you in the harbour). You will find the chair and the rhino on the second ...  more »
  • Futuristic parking and fishing for the building, just do it. In the library are toilets which is very useful. At the parking boxes just look up to this.

  • I visited the library for the architecture. Huge open spaces designed thinking about socializing, spending quality family time among books. There where a lot of families with babies but still quiet tho. I believe it's a thing to see in Aarhus. You will enjoy the sights.
  • The place is just a big modern open space building. However it is simple and functional and they have many different facilities for kids, students and generally just every citizen. They also have a lot of books...
  • This place is beautiful. Nonetheless, there are a few points that a I share with many reviewers of this place: 1) The collection of books in other languages that are not Danish is very poor. 2) This is a library, not a children's playground. Although they have designated areas to play, sadly, the library is mostly used as a park for them, since they yell and run around everywhere without their parents nor the library's staff supervision. This makes it really tough for the people who actually come here to read, work, or study.
  • Absolutely amazing place. Good for studying and working with your laptop, also good for meetings and group gatherings. Very inspiring atmosphere, the are books. In different languages of you don't speak Danish and various activities for visitors every day
  • Beautiful architecture. Take a walk around the house outside. Great view everywhere. Take a walk around the library in several levels. Eat a chilli con carne in the cafe and take the food with you to the outside. You can spend a long time in this beautiful house, which is a great place for families with children.

Where to stay in Aarhus

For a price, you can stay close to the main sights of this charming city at one of the many hotels located in Aarhus' historical old town. While it may feel like a romantic small town with its cobbled streets, accommodations here, especially centrally located options or hotels along the marina, are just as expensive as in many other Scandinavian cities. Moderately priced hotels and hostels are limited, so if you are traveling on a budget, book early at a spot outside the city center. For nature lovers passing through the city, there are also campgrounds located near Aarhus in the beautiful surrounding forests.
