Transfer to the city center for a stroll along the Århus Canal. The canal has been of great significance to the history of the city, and today it is a natural gathering point with the numerous cafés stretched like pearls along its banks.
Follow your guide through the streets and squares of Århus and listen to stories of the city's history, markets, houses, and those who have lived in them throughout the ages. You will reach ARoS (the Århus Modern Art Museum) and make your way to the very top of this tall building. Step out and take in in the cityscape in vivid technicolor through the Your Rainbow Panorama walkway designed by Icelander Ólafur Elíasson.
From here, it's a short walk to Den Gamle By -- the Old Town. With more than 80 houses dating from 1600 to 1970, this living museum is an absolute must-see. It also features more than 34 workshops and shops as well as a pharmacy, a school, a post office, a telephone exchange and a jazz bar. The Old Town also has its own theater -- the Elsinore Theatre -- which hosts opera performances, chamber concerts and festivals.
Your tour will either begin or end with a transfer back from or to the pier.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations.
