  • .. from 1857 are women's Museum. Here you can (almost) always see an interesting exhibition, or spend time in the permanent collection. Remember to look at the old meeting rooms from the time the House was still a town hall. On the ground floor are the Museum's cafe, which is also worth a visit because of the old furniture and exhibits. The coffee is not something to cheer for, thin and half cold .... it is a sad end to the visit.

  • Is a small, valuable Museum. Tells the story of women in Denmark and the fight for your rights. Has interesting exhibitions too. Free of charge.

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.
