What people are saying about Aarhus

Overall rating

3.4 / 5

based on 20 reviews

Because of the closed city center, we waited almost 1 hour for the onward journey, then drove back with the city bus and were given a remaining trip by the driver from the town hall.

Nice hike. Bus on time. However, what was disappointing, the audio in French did not work.
