Aarhus in detail

Travel with Children

Aarhus – and indeed all of Jutland – is an incredibly family friendly place to travel. Entry to most museums is free for kids, and you won’t have to minimise your time in culture-vulture places: almost every attraction has factored kids into its audience, with displays and activities designed especially to keep them entertained. And then there are places designed solely with families in mind – Tivoli Friheden in Aarhus, for example, but also numerous theme parks and zoos in Djursland, Randers and, of course, Legoland.

Other factors point to a relatively stress-free experience: many hotels have family rooms (Danhostel Aarhus, CabInn Aarhus Hotel and Hotel Aarhus City Apartments are good options); many restaurants have a børnemenu (children’s menu); the outdoors are gentle and the beaches calm; and you can hire kids’ bikes or seats from Cycling Aarhus. Go forth and multiply!
