Following Copenhagen, Aarhus is Denmark`s second largest city with 310,000 residents. This Danish metropolis offers a wide variety shopping options. In the historic quarter called Latinerkvarter you will find small, unique boutiques and nice cafés. In the Strøget shopping boulevard and Bruuns Galleri, a newer, stylish shopping centre there are large department stores and the well-known shops of international fashion brands.

And history buffs will also enjoy Aarhus: In the Gamle By open air museum, city life of centuries gone by comes back to life. Here you can visit 75 historical buildings as well as a toy and clock museum. In addition, you can experience an up close look at traditional arts and crafts.

In Marselisborg, located in the southwestern section of the city, the castle and prehistoric museum are awaiting your visit. In the museum, a 2000 year old bog body can be seen. The castle is the royal summer residence. During this time, the castle cannot be visited. Fortunately, there are many other castles to see in the Aarhus area, including in Rosenholm, Clausholm, Dronninglund, Højriis and Voergård.

Other sightseeing destinations in East Jutland include Fregatten Jylland in Ebeltoft harbour and the Ebeltoft Family Park zoo. A side trip to Gammel Estrup, a manor house with its own farm, is well worth it. Two other tourist attractions are the Randers Rainforest with tropical birds and snakes and Mariager, "the town of the roses", with its idyllic collection of half-timbered houses. Also easy to reach by car are Tivoliland, near Aalborg (100 km north of Aarhus), and Legoland, near Billund (100 km south of Aarhus).
