Aarslev Engso, Brabrand

(5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Brabrand Lake is a lake in the district of Brabrand (Gellerup), west of Aarhus city, Denmark. The Aarhus River passes through Brabrand Lake and it is possible to canoe all the way to the inner city from here. The lake is oblong-shaped.Within the last decade, Brabrand Lake has steadily been extended 3–4 km further west, with the new lake of Årslev Engsø (lit.: meadow lake of Årslev). It was politically decided, to abandon the artificial draining of the meadows and as of 2013, Årslev meadow lake has a surface area of around 100ha. The total area including the adjoining meadows and reed beds sums up to 240ha. It is expected that Eurasian bittern and otter, will find themselves a new home here with time. In everyday parlance, "Brabrand Lake" is a general term including the surroundings as well, indicating a total area of around 560ha with 253ha for the lake alone.A special Natura2000 protected area under the European Union, Brabrand Lake is home to a large variety of birds and an important resting-place for migrating birds, with several towers built to facilitate bird-watching. A public hiking trail surrounds the lake, whose landscape varies from wide meadows and reed beds to dense woods. The lake brinks is occupied by privately owned pastures, almost all the way around the lake and is not publicly accessible. There are public paths leading to the lake itself scattered in between, though. There are several alottments nearby. It is a popular recreational area and it is a statutory goal of the Aarhus municipality to make it publicly accessible and attractive for the citizens.

  • Whether you want to walk, cycle, run so it's a good trip. Still to be on gravel and unsat season always worth a trip. You get a little away from the city bustle and can just enjoy the ride. You will be always enriched with a trip around Årslev Engso

  • Do you want to experience nature and wildlife, a walk around the Engsøen be a natural choice. You can experience the horses on studied. Sit on a bench and enjoy the nature with its sounds. The horses in the Paddock can be fed, like carrots and a few apples. Children will love this.

  • Do you want to see many migratory birds, and possibly also see white-tailed eagle, then Årslev Engso good to visit. There are birds towers on both sides of the Lake, so there are good opportunities to observe birds. It is also a very varied walk the approximately 10 km around the Lake.
