Why You Should Visit Aarhus
Aarhus, Denmark. It is a great location, with a wonderful climate, with no extremes such as very high or very low temperatures. The summer months bring average temperatures of twenty degrees and the winter brings temperatures around one degree, which means that the climate is more similar with central European countries, than to Scandinavian cities. If you like sunny days, then you should visit Aarhus on summer, since May until August, or September.
Dont mis the Old Town Museum in Århus
As a demanding tourist that you are, for sure you wish to know what Aarhus
tourist attractions has to offer. There are many things that you can see and do. First, you should definitely visit one of the important Aarhus tourist attractions,
The Old Town Museum
and Modelbane Europa, which presents many train railways, passing through high mountains, dark tunnels, great bridges and deep valleys. Eleven tracks keep everything going and the traffic works impeccable. If you thought that this is for real, then you should think again. All this is a miniature and children are allowed to drive those trains. I just mentioned it, as families with children should visit that place, as the children are going to be amazed.
The river Gudenå - a flowing stream of experience
A flowing stream of experiences
With its more than 160 kilometres the Gudenå - Denmarks only river - meanders through the Lakelands and provides water and landscapte to a flowing stream of experiences.
Canoeing for fun
The classic sailing vessel, the canoe, can take you on a voyage where you can pitch you tent at one of the many primitive lay-bys or campsites along the river. Get sun in your hair and a smile on your lips while you paddle on in harmony with nature. Canoes are for rent at the camping sites and at the lock in Ry. Fetch a folder with information on prices and routes from the Tourist Information.
Kayak - yes please
You can put your kayak in the water an abundance of places in the Lakelands. You can for example set out from the new outdoor recreational oasis by the Emborg Bridge south of Gl. Rye and follow the current north via Lake Gudensø to Ry. Or you can start from the lovely Knudhule beach at the eastern end of Lake Knudsø and enjoy a trip on the lake. NB! No kayaks for rent.
You could also try one of the brand new, sun-driven boats with electric engines. The solar panels on the roof of the obats deliver the energy, making the trip very peaceful and quiet. you get quite close to the wildlife on the river and the lakes and can enjoy a noiseless summer picnic. The maximum speed is four knots, so sailing by the sun is for people that appreciate sustainability and quality of life.
Angling - Catch a fish
