“Aarhus Theater is located at Bispetorv and just the facade of the building is beautiful. In the big scene the ceiling and balcons are decorated with angels and gold, and the furniture are old and with green velvet seats. If you don't understand danish, then maybe see if they have a "theater concert" which they're known for - they've made them with both Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and many more international artists! Or maybe just go and enjoy the show, and see if you'll catch up on bit of danish ;-)”

“If you are here a Sunday you should try their Sunday brunch! It’s fantastic! It might seem a bit expensive (225kr) but it’s a buffet where they make fresh egg dishes, pancakes, and all drinks (coffee, fresh orange juice and cremant) are included. The staff is really relaxed and friendly and sometimes they ask you for help to sable their cremant. (Remember to book a table in advance). Their dinner at evening is typically French. Jægergaardsgade 65.”
