History Museum
“The most popular tourist attraction in the city. Travel through time to the 19th century, the early 20th century and all the way to the 1970's in this amazing living museum! All the buildings are authentic - demolished, brought to Aarhus and rebuild in the Old Town. Local actors are serving as guides, vendors and townsfolk.”

Library
“This is actually the city’s main public library, but it is so much more than that. It’s a place for families to hang out and play, great for working at studying and there is always many events taking place. From here you can take a nice walk at the harbor area. Remember to visit ‘Havnepladsen’ where there is a playful water fountain where it is nice to chill and hang out for families and students. Hackkampmannsplads 2.”
