Thank you Marina for an exceptionally interesting and informative excursion! Did not notice how time flew by! We managed to visit the Old town, and got to see the street art too!

This is totally worth it if you come to Denmark - I highly recommend you to come to Aarhus and visit Marinas excursions!
Jane, Trip Advisor
We could have spent all day here. An amazing place with different buildings from centuries back to the modern day. Many of the buildings have wonderful and detailed exhibits from different times in history. There are also people in role and we were entertained finding out about paying rent, being a servant, and the issues facing people in the 1860’s A good restaurant and facilities. Don’t miss out the Aarhus story and additional museums in the modern part of the site.
Easy going, relaxed, professional!
Bart, Trip Advisor
