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.

  • Located in a basement area of a building, very informative, display boards to explain the artifacts, no interactive or technological exhibits, but that makes a nice change sometimes, so I am not sure ...  more »
  • It's hard to leave a real review for a place I haven't entered, but we did go at 3:45 on a weekday and it was closed. The sign on the door said it was open until 4pm. Disappointing! Consistency is key...  more »
  • Located in the basement of a Nordea bank, this little museum displays Viking era artifacts uncovered on site. Worth a short visit.  more »

  • Although it's a very small museum, it has some nice displays. And as it's free why not pay a visit!
  • Small, cozy and just enough to educate you about the Vikings. And it's free!
  • Small exhibit of Viking Age Aarhus. Informative and well made. And since it's free it's great for families who might not have time to visit Moesgaard Museum on a day trip.
  • Good thing come in small packages?
  • The most exciting feature of this museum is its location at the actual site of the excavation. The museum gives a really good impression of how the city of Aarhus looked like in the Viking era. However, the nearby museum of Moesgaard gives a more complete picture of Denmark in ancient times.
