Marselisborg Deer Park (Danish: Marselisborg Dyrehave) is a 22 hectares (54 acres) enclosed woodland area in the northern parts of the Marselisborg Forests. The trees are somewhat sparse here and the terrain especially hilly, compared to the surrounding forest.

Marselisborg Deer Park is not a deer park in the original sense, as it is not meant for hunting deer. The idea is more like a small safari park, but just presenting a few common species, without exotic animals. Initially sika deer were introduced to graze the curvy open woodland hills, but later roe deer and wild boars has been added.

The park was established in 1932 and have since been enlarged several times. It is owned and administered by the Aarhus Municipality.

  • Passed by shortly, but well worth it. There are so many deer and they are absolutely gorgeous. Good parking and free entry. Worth a trip and a good walk

  • Wonderful place to be in direct contact with nature and friendly wild animals. Good for adults and much better for kids. I recommend.
  • Nice forest to walk and see the deers. One can feed them carrots. Children and adults can enjoy.
  • Absolutely fine place to calm down and get the stress away. Lovely! Also nice for first dates, or the second - or just in general for get your love to a nice place.
  • Wonderful park! I have never seen that many deers at once and from so close. If you want them to approach you, bring some veggies: plums, carrots, apples (they're particularly fond of the latter).
  • Lovely park both for adults and kids. Buy a bag full of carrots at the nearby stall (20 DKK) and feed the “hungry” throats of local inhabitants. :) 🅿️ for free right next to the park
