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.

  • I love how the Danes make a special effort in honoring the other half of the gender. And actually by doing this also recognizing all the spectrum of sexuality acknowledged in the 21st century. So prog...  more »
  • The lady in the reception was very good in informing us how the museum was organised and the closing time for the museum, but the museum itself was not that impressive. The museum is also very small.  more »
  • The museum is very small and not worth the entry price in my opinion. If it was a free museum I would recommend as somewhere to go to get a taste of women's history quickly but since you have to pay I...  more »

  • Its big but you don't know much about the womens history
  • Expected a little more, but really worth a visit.
  • Looking forward to the new exhibitions. Charming cafe.
  • This place is a total rip off!! A whole floor practically empty and another floor with different stories of women with just pages (A4 size) hanging from the ceiling with all the information. The props used in this floor are bland and fail to enhance the experience. You can go through the whole "museum" in 20 min. tops. It is a real shame that the concept of a museum about women gets ruined by such a poor and lazy attempt. There is a lot to say about the progress and struggles of women throughout the years and there is so much information our there, but this place just shows a glimpse of it and it is displayed in a way that it is not particularly friendly for the visitor, in some parts it almost appears that no thought was put into the design in terms of user experience. For comparison, the Viking museum across the street is free and has more content, and the Dem Gamle By costs the same and there is enough content there for at least 3 to 4 hours (If not more) Unless the place undergoes a radical change they should stop charging an entrance fee or they should just close the museum until they get their act together.
  • Great little place for women (and men) to visit to get a look into womens lives.. the museum discusses different problematic questions for and from women
