The Vikings are coming!:
The tour tells the story of Aarhus as one of the oldest Danish towns founded by the Vikings and visits the oldest stone church in Scandinavia built by them in 1060.
Aarhus Pedestrian Area:
We walk in the pedestrian area between the cathedral and the railway station exploring the history and urban projects which have given Aarhus the big city looks.
Aarhus from the Vikings to the European Capital of Culture:
We explore over 1000 year history of the city, visit the main sights and share a lot of practical information about the city’s gastronomic, cultural and entertainment offer.
Aarhus University Campus:
We get to know the stories behind the university project by C.F. Møller and admire the unique campus architecture and park.
Dokk1 and the Neighbouring Area:
The tour shows you the fantastic developments at the Aarhus river mouth and Dokk1 area. We also explore the cultural life of the neighbourhood located by the sea.
The subtitle: Everything you always wanted to know about the Pig Monument, but were too afraid to ask reveals the tour’s contents: hunt for public sculptures, wall paintings and urban details hidden on buildings, pavements and bridges. We pay the visit and see the interior of the only building in Denmark designed by Frank Gehry.
Aarhus Waterfront and Aarhus Island:
The marine walk goes from Dokk1 to Aarhus Ø, the new modern residential area. Ideal tour for new architecture and art lovers. Take a camera (great views).
Marselisborg Royal Tales:
We walk in the Royal Park and Gardens admiring a wonderful collection of sculptures the Queen has received on different occasions. We explore the history of Royal Summer Residence Marselisborg Palace designed by Hack Kampmann. (check the website or FB site, as there might be changes due to the closing period of the park when the Queen is in residence)
* Aarhus Explorers Special Walk:
