Go! Running Tours in Aarhus are the best way to discover this up-and-coming “small big city”. A recent boom in growth turned this charming university city into a bubbling cultural hub. But don’t take our word for it. Aarhus won the European Capital of Culture and European Region of Gastronomy in 2017.

Your friendly running guide will be more than happy to tell you all about the city, starting with how to pronounce it. Denmark’s second-largest city is on the rise as a destination for the hip and trendy who see capital cities as too mainstream.

So if you’re bored of the classic been-there-done-that destinations and want something fresh, this is the place for you. Let your private, local guide teach you all about somewhere new with our running tours in Aarhus.

What our Customers are Saying:

Despite its relatively small size, Aarhus is full of stylish architecture and Michelin-starred restaurants. It is developing a reputation as a cultural reference point, pushing modern Nordic cuisine and art galleries. All this sits alongside historical buildings, giving a sense of old meets new.

With the rise of trendy culture comes the events that go with it. Ask your personal guide for recommendations of what’s going on while you’re in the area, and you certainly won’t be disappointed. Remember your camera too. Aarhus is a very photogenic city and you’ll be sure to want to stop for a few snaps, especially at the Royal Summerhouse.

The city recognises the importance of fitness and encourages runners with many green spaces. It also helps that the city is petite, meaning you can zip around most of what you need to see on foot.

Our running tours in Aarhus cover all bases. The 10-km Architecture Tour shows you all of the city’s notable buildings and modern architecture.
