  • Nice Museum, but a bit small. It's just one room but a lot of information and interesting facts. I recommend it to everyone for a quick visit.
  • Low key entrance belies the genuine sense of history created below as you imagine the way people lived in that very spot over 900 years ago. Worth a visit (it's free too!)
  • The museum is free to enter, and sits as a branch of MOMU (Moesgaard Museum) which lies on the southern end of the city. Both of the places are a great recommendation for anyone interested in Danish history further back than the 1700s. Sadly, only the museum branch in this basement is free to enter. It's a nice visit if you have the time and interest, that's for sure.
  • Nice little free museum that provides an insight into the Viking artefacts & houses that were situated here hundreds of years ago.
  • Far to small to give much insight into the vikings lives. Interesting stuff though.

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.
