Marselisborg Palace & Park

The grounds of the Dutch royal family summer residence are open to visitors when the palace is unoccupied, and strolling through the adjacent park and English garden is free of charge. An arguably even more appealing attraction lies just south from here - a park populated by tame deer who eagerly accept treats from and interact with visitors.

Do & See

The relatively large influx of young people and students from across the Nordic countries creates a natural base for cultural activities, and there are countless cafes as well as clubs, cinemas, museums, parks and various other venues of entertainment. Each year, the town hosts several festivals and concerts including Aarhus International Jazz Festival in July and Aarhus Festuge in September—the biggest themed festival in Scandinavia.
