Between timbered museums, contemporary architecture, the open-air and a vibrant cultural life, Aarhus has plenty to offer. Start your day off with a visit to the Kunstbygning, otherwise known as the Art Building, where 1000 square meters of contemporary art, exhibitions and sculptures await you, then visit Den Gamle By (the Old Town) for some historical art in the shape of an open-air museum, featuring structures erected between 1550 and 1800. Be sure to check out the Aarhus Cathedral, where the walls are covered in frescoes dating back to 1470 and admire the vast largness of the space and its paintings, some painted as far back as 1300! Grab some roast pork sandwiches and wash it down with a beer before heading down to to Nyholm Cantrell Glas, where you can witness glassblowers create glass vases, boxes and scultupres. Then, spend the evening in Southern Aarhus where you’ll spot such fine sights as the Marselisborg Palace, residence of the Danish Royal Family, the rustic Memorial Park and the contemporary Ole Romer Observatory, where you can catch an astronomical presentation. For dinner, eat like the locals and try cod with cabbage and buttermilk, and spend the rest of your evening strolling the repurposed Godsbanen area, stopping to check out some outdoor workshops before seeing a performance at the Aarhus Theatre.
