It can be safely called an open-air museum, as more than 70 historic buildings of various periods have been preserved in the Old Town. Almost all the buildings are open to the public. Here you can visit a hat workshop, an antique toy store, a shoemaker's shop, as well as numerous craft shops. Some old buildings are presently occupied by bakeries and pastry shops. There are several regional restaurants in the historic district. One day is hardly enough to explore all the Old Town attractions. Many tourists come here in search of interesting souvenirs.

An important historical symbol of the city is Marselisborg Palace. It was built in the second half of the 17th century and was originally privately owned. In 1896, due to large debts, the palace passed into state ownership and began to be used as a summer royal residence. The palace retains this high status to this day. In 1967, it underwent a major reconstruction. The palace is closed for tours, but on days when no representatives of the royal family are inside, everyone can walk around a landscaped garden surrounding the building. Its most interesting part is a chic rose garden presenting more than 350 varieties of roses. Labyrinth-shaped rose bushes look incredibly impressive during the flowering period.
The city's main religious symbol is Aarhus Cathedral, which attracts tourists with its unique architecture and a roof of rich emerald color. The construction of the very first Romanesque cathedral in its place was completed in 1300. It lasted only 30 years and was completely destroyed by large fire. It was possible to rebuild it anew only in 1449. Since then, the shrine has managed to preserve its original Gothic features. Since its construction, the 96-meter-high cathedral has been one of the largest in Denmark. The cathedral's hall is so large that it can accommodate about 1,200 people at a time. The building retains several medieval frescoes, as well as a number of valuable religious artifacts that were saved from the fire. The main decoration of its interior is a gilded altar. Copyright

It got the mummy of a man who lived in these places more than 2,300 years ago. It was found in a swampy area on the outskirts of Aarhus. Visitors to the museum are also invited to check out a collection of ancient weapons, as well as stones with runic inscriptions.
Aarhus has one of the largest art museums in Northern Europe - the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum. Its official opening took place in 2004, while the museum’s collection began to be formed much earlier.
