Join the Essential Free Tour of Aarhus for a wonderful journey through Denmark’s delightful second city. Trace its development from Viking origins to a thriving and modern city, whilst sticking to a budget! During your tour, you will understand why Aarhus is affectionately called the "City of Smiles" as you discover the city’s welcoming and tolerant attitude. One of the highlights of the tour is a stop at the Aarhus Cathedral, the longest and tallest cathedral in Denmark. Listen to your knowledgeable and passionate guide tell you tales of its long and illustrious history and its rebirth after a near-devastating fire.

On this tour, you will spend time wandering through the picture-perfect Latin Quarter, the oldest part of the city, full of cafes, bars, and beautiful old houses. Your guide will show you all the best places to visit during your stay. Aarhus has a seemingly inexhaustible number of pretty spots to enjoy strolling around, including the lovely River Boulevard. This thoroughfare dates back to 1477 and is now a popular route for locals and tourists. From here is the Mill Path, known as the most beautiful street in Aarhus, but behind its charming facade lies a hidden history that your guide will be happy to reveal.

Another important landmark is the ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, among the most popular cultural centers in Scandinavia. As you pass by, you will see the incredible rainbow panorama of the museum, one of the most instagramable spots on Aarhus and well-worth a return visit on your own. Return to the past as you discover the famous Den Gamle By, the world's first open-air town museum. With over 75 buildings to explore, it is a must-see in Aarhus. Please feel free to ask your guide any questions during the tour, your guide will be happy to offer detailed and entertaining explanations!
