Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city, and though it might live in the shadow of its big sister Copenhagen, it’s a vibrant, energetic city with loads of personality. Begin your Aarhus adventure at the Rainbow Panorama on top of the Aros art museum, where you’ll get an unobstructed 360-degree view of the city to get your bearings before setting off. Visitors should explore the Old Town, an open-air museum in the botanical gardens composed of 75 historical buildings collected from 20 villages in Denmark all arranged into a historic small town.
For a once-in-a-lifetime adrenaline rush, make your way to the Tivoli Friheden amusement park to try the Sky Tower Free Fall, where you can plummet from the top of a tower to land safely in a soft net at the bottom. After that, bring your blood pressure back down to normal levels with a relaxing stroll through Marselisborg Deer Park, where you will be able to pet the deer that live here and even feed them by hand.
