Discover Aarhus with an expert guide
Aarhus is a city with a rich history and plenty of fascinating stories and the best way to explore this heritage is on a professional guided tour. As the city's authorized tour company, the Aarhus Guides have over 60 years of experience of introducing visitors to the very best of this captivating city, from its top attractions to lesser known sights.
Whether you're interested in religious history, tales of the Vikings or Aarhus' wartime experiences, there's a tour catering to every interest and itinerary. Choose from two-hour themed walks that introduce you to numerous aspects of the city’s history, or target a specific attraction with a one-hour tour. Aarhus Guides also offer guided coach and bicycle tours of the city and surrounding countryside, allowing visitors to discover even more of this beautiful region.
Guided walks with Aarhus Guides
The company's guided city walks run from Monday to Friday throughout July and August, with most starting outside Aarhus Cathedral. You can purchase tickets from the guide on the day and no advance booking is required for individuals or small groups. Select from topics such as "In the Footsteps of the Vikings", "1000 Years of Aarhus" or "Aarhus During the Occupation 1940-45" – there's even a specific tour tailored to children, and a tour with a quiz at the end, which is perfect for groups.
Alternately, take a guided tour of one of Aarhus' most popular attractions. For instance, Aarhus Guides arrange visits all year-round to the distinctive looking Aarhus City Hall (just a five-minute walk from the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Aarhus), which includes the opportunity to climb the building's tower for spectacular views over the surrounding area. Other exciting attractions include The Old Town Museum of Urban History, Aarhus Cathedral and Marselisborg Palace and Park.
